The NCCHPP is one of 8 partners of the new Public Health Training for Equitable Systems Change (PHESC) project
The PHESC project was created to identify priority training needs, as well as develop, implement, and evaluate a training program intended for Ontario's public health workforce.
November 2018. Description.

The Public Health Training for Equitable Systems Change (PHESC) program is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and administered by the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. The purpose of this two-year grant is to support the development of a comprehensive training plan to improve knowledge, skills, and performance of Ontario's public health workforce while integrating a health equity approach.

The following organizations are partners in this project:

● Dalla Lana School of Public Health (DLSPH), University of Toronto (Lead)
● Alliance for Healthier Communities (Alliance)
● National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH)
● National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT)
● National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP)
● Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA)
● Public Health Ontario (PHO)
● Wellesley Institute

In this project, the NCCHPP will support capacity building in health impact assessment (HIA) and in public health ethics. This partnership will allow the NCCHPP to update and improve its online training course on HIA and also offer additional support to Ontario's public health units in HIA and in public health ethics.
