The business of public health has tremendous breadth – we have a long list of programs and services to deliver. Our challenge is to discharge these many responsibilities while, at the same time, ensuring that we identify the most important issues and intervene with sufficient intensity to make a real difference. This is the “what” of our strategic plan – the four Program Priorities.
The strategic plan also describes elements of the “how” of our work. The first of these is the adoption of our guiding philosophy: The Public Health Way, with its emphasis on a population-based approach to improving health status. The second is the improvement of our internal capacity to deliver our services in a cost-effective, respectful and transparent manner. These improvements are set out in our five Infrastructure Priorities.
We are urging all our employees, volunteers, the community and our partner organizations in the health-care system to join with us in embedding The Public Health Way and our Infrastructure and Program Priorities into our daily operations. By doing so, you will be helping to make Peel Public Health a Canadian leader in this field and achieve the Region of Peel’s vision of being a healthy, vibrant and safe community that values its diversity and quality of life.
