From time to time to time Health Nexus contributes to or leads a number of special projects, events or initiatives. Current examples include:
During this 36 month project, Health Nexus will support five projects funded under the Political Leadership grants by developing and implementing an evaluation framework and design to capture the key milestones to identifying and overcoming systemic barriers that lead to women’s under-representation in democratic leadership and public life. Health Nexus will also support Status of Women, Political Leadership and Civic Engagement funded projects goals through knowledge development and partnership support in order to strengthen and develop robust cross-sectoral partnerships.
Collaborative Leadership in Practice (CLiP)
Health Nexus and the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA) recently wrapped up a two-year bilingual project to strengthen collaborative and equitable leadership in the non-profit sector —specifically in the context of partnerships and networks. For more information please visit the CLiP website.
Health Nexus regularly takes on innovative, collaborative provincial and national initiatives, often in partnership with others to create a synergistic benefit. Here are just a few current examples:
Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance
Health Nexus is a proud member of the Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (OCDPA). The Alliance's 21 member organizations support
s chronic disease prevention and health promotion in Ontario, and are a collective voice for effective prevention policy and programming. The OCDPA produces tools and publications on current and emerging topics, and participates in special projects such as the recent Healthiest Province campaign.
Ontario Health Promotion Resource Centres
Health Nexus hosts the Best Start Resource Centre and is a proud member of HC Link, two of several health promotion resource centres funded by the Ontario Government. View a complete list of these resource centres, including contact information and a brief description of their services.
Baby Friendly Initiative Strategy for Ontario
Health Nexus is supporting the Michael Garron Hospital (formerly Toronto East General Hospital) through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Healthy Kids Strategy. The goal of the initiative is to deliver training and other supports to nearly 400 organizations in collaboration with the Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health and the Best Start Resource Centre. Together we will support hospitals, community health centres, Aboriginal health access centres, birthing centres, family health teams and nurse practitioner-led clinics across Ontario in achieving BFI designation through training, consultations and resource development.
