Activate Health is a battle cry for British Columbians to shift the way we see, think about, and engage with health
Stigma against people who use substances is driving the overdose crisis; a public health emergency for BC and Canada
Asthma is the most common chronic childhood illness.
Experts are working to change that.
“By advancing our mandate in prevention and health promotion, by fostering equity and recognizing positive health is also inclusive of our place in the world around us, and by placing a healthy human at the core of our vision, I believe we can truly make a difference in the health outcomes of BC and beyond. I hope you will join us on the journey.”
– Kristy Kerr, Executive Director –
We can all play a role in eliminating stigma to prevent overdoses and save lives. Experts, advocates, and people with lived experience are battling for a safe supply of drugs and decriminalization; we can join them through actions we can take, every day, starting now.
