Health Equity Workgroup

  • This workgroup is made up of community and public health professionals and researchers who are interested in working on advancing health equity in Ontario
  • The HEWG advocates for and supports the development of a public health system that includes health equity as both approach and outcome
  • Our Workgroup meets at least quarterly, and the Subgroups meet more frequently to operationalize workplans

  • Currently, we have four areas of focus:
    • Anti-Racism
    • Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion
    • Mental Health and Substance Use
    • and the Social Determinants of Health
