Health promotion throughout the Beaufort-Delta region focuses on healthy living and disease prevention activities and projects, in partnership with other territorial, regional and local organizations, to raise awareness of and provide education about public health concerns.
Promotion and prevention programs and services are provided at the community level through health centres and public health units as well as non-government organizations.
Community Health Representatives (CHRs) within the communities work in collaboration with health care providers, schools, and community agencies to plan and implement activities that promote healthy lifestyle choices. Monthly newsletters are distributed in each community with information on community events and health tips.
