Equity-deserving community members
We are working to make health care available to everyone in a way that strives to:
- meet their needs
- respect their cultural and linguistic preferences and
- eliminate barriers to care.
Equity-deserving community members can experience various barriers to accessing health and wellness services. Barriers could include attitudinal, historical, social and environmental barriers based on age, ethnicity, disability, economic status, gender, nationality, race, sexual orientation and transgender status, etc.
Partnerships. We are working with the Homelessness Collective Impact Committee (https://www.unitedwaykfla.ca/hcic/) to listen and learn from people who are experiencing chronic homelessness.
Our FLA OHT strategy is focused on reducing barriers to health and wellness for vulnerable and marginalized populations.
