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

Community Health & Wellbeing

To achieve its vision of the best possible health and wellbeing for everyone, AOHC has launched an outreach initiative called: Shift the Conversation: Community Health and Wellbeing. It’s going to be an ongoing conversation and dialogue with those who share our vision.  And the conversation  will extend far beyond health and the health care system.

The way most people talk about health care, doesn’t capture a big enough picture.  The conversation takes too a narrow focus on treating illness. And as result of this narrow focus, what we really have is an sickenss care  system, not a health system at all.   

So the question we are asking is:  How can we transform Ontario’s sickness care system into a Community Health and Wellbeing system that promotes the best possible health and wellbeing for everyone living in Ontario?
