Effective reproductive health program planning, delivery, and management  is build on quality health status information. Assessment and surveillance has historically been associated with infectious diseases and vaccination programs in public health, but its importance has become increasingly recognized for reproductive and child health.  To support the dissemination of standard assessment and surveillance reproductive health indicators, PHO has expanded their interactive web application, Snapshots to include a selection of reproductive health and maternal health indicators using readily available  data from BORN and intelliHEALTH. This presentation will discuss the results of geographic and temporal trends for key public health indicators at the Ontario and public health unit level.

Participants will learn how to use the online tool to retrieve the results for their area.
