"As an integral part of regional perinatal care for over 20 years, the Perinatal Partnership Program of Eastern and Southeastern Ontario (PPPESO) works together with
- Health departments
- Community agencies
- Academic institutions
- Private practitioners/consumers
"We effectively link perinatal health care, education and research. In June of 1999, agencies involved in perinatal care in the region signed a formal partnership agreement. This accord formally recognizes our community's commitment to continue to work together in an interdisciplinary approach and share resources and data.
"The Perinatal Partnership Program has a team of dedicated professionals who promote excellence in perinatal care services by using a region-wide approach to work with it's partners to plan, develop, implement and evaluate programs. PPPESO's role is to provide support to this process by collecting and analyzing data, dissemination of information, communication, advice, facilitation and education."
