The mission of the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is to foster a better understanding of factors that affect the health of individuals and communities; and to contribute to the development of policies that reduce inequities and improve the health and well-being of Canadians.
National Collaborating Centres (NCCs) for Public Health in Canada promote and improve the use of scientific research and other knowledge to strengthen public health practices and policies in Canada. They identify knowledge gaps, foster networks and translate existing knowledge to produce and exchange relevant, accessible, and evidence-informed products with researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.
