As indicated by the Ontario Public Health Standards (OPHS), “The board of health shall use population health, determinants of health and health inequities information to assess the needs of the local population, including the identification of populations at risk, to determine those groups that would benefit most from public health programs and services (i.e., priority populations).”

The Priority Populations Project is a response to the need expressed by Ontario’s public health units (PHUs) for guidance in identifying priority populations to meet this mandate. Though literature review, key informant interviews and survey examine 3 questions: What are priority populations? Why do we identify priority populations? How do we identify populations?

This presentation will  discuss the application of these findings to the practice of public health.

Presenter: Dr. Ingrid Tyler
