Ontario's voice for community-governed primary health care.

"Ontario's health system must adopt a more proactive, preventative approach to address the many different social and economic factors that harm people's health and wellbeing," says Adrianna Tetley, CEO of the Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC), a provincial association that represents 107 primary health care organizations across Ontario.

Read AOHC’s congratulatory letters to Minister Hoskins and Premier Wynne expressing our interest in working with the government to expand access to primary health care in northern, rural and fast growing communities. We’ve also praised their commitment to develop a Community Wellness and Culture of Health Strategy, and invited them to participate in Community Health and Wellbeing events in early October.

On December 6, the Auditor General released her audit of Community Health Centres (CHCs) in Ontario. The report also contains several mentions of other models of team-based primary health care including Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics (NPLCs), Family Health Teams (FHTs) and Aboriginal Health Access Centres (AHACs).
