CACHC Launches Inaugural Community Health


CACHC is excited to announce the launch of the inaugural Canadian Community Health Centres Organizational Survey. Developed through the leadership of CACHC's Research Working Group, this brief online survey aims to increase understanding of Community Health Centres (CHCs) across Canada and the breadth of services and programs that they provide.

Input from Community Health Centres across the country will be used to disseminate raise awareness of CHCs across Canada; to advocate funding opportunities to support CHCs and community-engaged, participatory research across the country; to facilitate knowledge exchange and collaboration among CHCs; and to identify opportunities and areas for global collaboration among CHCs. This will be done by connecting CHCs in Canada and other parts of the world via the International Federation of Community Health Centres.

The survey will go live in early July. Community Health Centres are requested to complete the survey by August 30, 2013. Key results of the survey will be shared with delegates attending Medicare@50: Our Healthy Future and the Role of Community Health Centres, in September, and will form the basis for important discussions around future directions for CHCs across Canada.
