Featured HEIA in action
York Region Public Health is one of Ontario’s 36 public health units. It delivers a range of programs and services to prevent disease, protect the health and safety of residents, and promote healthy lifestyles and environments.
The health unit completed a Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) during the planning stage of a promotional campaign for their First Dental Visit initiative. This initiative promoted the recommendation that children have their first dental visit by age 1.
