Create a healthier future for British Columbia

Welcome to the Public Health Association of British Columbia (PHABC) Health Voices Election Toolkit website.

The Toolkit is a way for PHABC members and anyone concerned about the future of health care in British Columbia to advocate for long term improvements to our health care system, and create a healthier future.

Elections are a critical opportunity every 4 years to generate commitment to policy change.

By asking political parties and candidates to clarify their positions on important issues and helping them better understand the issues of significance to public health, we can and will make a difference.

Two things can transform the health of all British Columbians.

The health of British Columbians hangs in the balance. Raise your voice and make your concerns heard.

The toolkit is for you. Explore it. Learn more about the issues, spread the word and take action to create a healthier society.

  1. Another often forgotten issue that do transform and impact the health of British Columbians of any age, and yet is 100% preventable is dental decay: it all starts in your mouth as the relationships between oral and general health are abundant!
    I wonder how can PHABC advocate for public health benefits of initiatives such as water fluoridation in BC since less than 5% of our population has access to it. Water fluoridation is one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century!!! We simply ignore it.
