If you’re still looking for information, and we hope you are, these resources will tell you where to find it, or who you can talk to. The things we’ve tried to draw your attention to are a start—these resources will help you along the way.

Association of Ontario Health Centres (Canada)
The Association of Ontario Health Centres website features position papers, fact sheets, and a directory of all the registered Community Health Centres in Ontario, with contact information. The “F.Y.I.” section contains the most useful information.

Health Canada (Canada)
This is the central website of the Canadian Ministry of Health. Its “Community Health” section (scroll down the page) features reports on a variety of community health initiatives, for the elderly, children, or First Nations.

Health.gov (USA)
This web portal is the central point for all online information about health in the US. It features links to every US Government agency, department, and project related to health. A new and interesting section is “Steps to a HealthierUS,” which incorporates some of the aspects of the Healthy People 2010 program.
