PHO is pleased to support the Healthy Human Development (HHD) Table, a collaborative effort to support public health’s work in healthy human development through a collective focus on early years priorities. The HHD Table will convene stakeholders, and provide scientific research, evidence and guidance.
This Table was originally hosted by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services who continue to be involved, along with a broad range of other members. HHD Table members.
The principles of “collective impact” underpin the HHD Table’s approach with PHO acting as the “backbone organization” by providing literature reviews, epidemiological analysis, and implementation support.
The Table’s first priority is bringing a range of public health sector representatives together with other partners and experts to address the area of parental mental health to support healthy child development. The longer term goal is to develop a collective impact action plan and tools to support the implementation of that plan, using a common agenda and vision, shared measurement, continuous communication, and a strong partner engagement.
