Advocacy

GASHA works in partnership with communities, community-based organizations and schools to advocate for policies, programs and resources that will address barriers to access and promote inclusion and respect for cultural diversity. By using a "population health approach," GASHA aims to maintain and improve the health status of the entire population and to reduce health inequities.

Some examples of GASHA's partnerships with community organizations and schools to promote inclusion and reduce health inequities are:

  • Ageing Well Together Coalition 
  • Collaboration with First Nation Communities
  • Community Health Impact Assessment
  • Food Security Coalition
  • Gay Straight Alliance
  • Poverty Reduction Coalition
  • Promoting Physical Activity 
  • SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions)
