This week's OHPE feature, "Addressing Health Issues of the Homeless", comes in great part from Bonnie Dinning and Wendy Muckle of the Ottawa Inner City Health Project, with their description of the unique partnership of community agencies addressing the health care needs of the chronically homeless at both a systems and an individual level. The second part of the feature is a compilation of short descriptions of Toronto agencies short-term responses and projects being developed to act on homelessness and health issues. Our resources message provides organizations, reports and articles related to homelessness and health in inner cities of Ottawa, Toronto and the United States.
