Community Health Plan

The second Community Health Plan (Abrio Health 2019) recommitted to the vision with a more complete description of the desired future:

Vision: Own Our Own Health, Becoming Canada's Healthiest Community

Abrio Health Experiential Insights

We have moved from planning by the organization and bringing plans to the community to being community driven (from/with/by the community). At the same time, individuals and organizations are busy with their own work; potential collaborative projects have been perceived as getting in the way of their own priorities or mandates. This is changing with time as the community’s aspirations and opportunities become clearer but requires consistent engagement, shared learning, striving for mutual value, and time to build /rebuild relationships and trust.
Community Aspirations for Health
