Locally Driven Collaborative Projects – Cycle 5 Launch


15 March 2018

LDCP Cycle 5 has launched! Read on to see how we’re using collaboration at the local and provincial levels to tackle public health issues.

What is the LDCP program?

The Locally Driven Collaborative Projects (LDCP) program brings public health units together to develop and run research projects on issues of shared interest related to the Ontario Public Health Standards. We focus on fostering partnerships, strengthening knowledge transfer, and creating scientifically sound and relevant projects.
