I know so many of you are busy with fiscal year end activities, so appreciate you taking the time to read the newsletter. Seasons are already changing, although I am not sure we had a true winter.

A young caregiver is a child, teen or young adult who supports a family member for a variety of reasons. It could be a parent, sibling or grandparent. They may have a chronic illness like cancer, diabetes, dementia or Multiple Sclerosis. They may have an intellectual disability like Autism or Down Syndrome. They may have a physical disability from a brain injury or workplace accident. They may have mental health challenges like depression, anxiety or PTSD. They may have addictions to drugs or alcohol. Or they may have a variety of socio-economic factors like being a new family to the country and only the child speaks English or having a single parent at home.

Building Health Equity in the Greater Hamilton Area

In the fall of 2020, the Greater Hamilton Health Network began the important work of implementing their vision to provide an equitable and seamless continuum of care that actively improves population health, while meeting the individual needs of the community.

As part of this work, the GHHN recognized and identified the need to engage the voices of communities who face systemic discrimination or marginalization to understand how this impacts access to universal and accessible health care, knowing that inequity drives poor health.

We are pleased to share our community driven Health Equity Report that shares the voices of our communities and our bold vision for an equitable and culturally safe healthcare system that is patient centered.
