Featured HEIA in action

 

The 2017 Ontario Budget announced a new dementia strategy, along with an investment of more than $100 million over three years. The strategy improves access to high quality care for the more than 194,000 people living with dementia in Ontario and their care partners.

One of the guiding principles of the dementia strategy is to help people live well with dementia, regardless of their social circumstances. This principle guided us to consider carefully the array of needs of people with dementia—from community to community. To deliver truly better services to Ontario’s diverse population, we recognized we needed a framework to approach the multiple and intersecting needs of people with dementia. We decided on the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA).
