Community Health Boards

 



There are two Community Health Boards within the Pictou County Health Authority. They are:

Central / East Pictou Community Health Board
Pictou West Community Health Board

What is a Community Health Board and what do they do?

Community Health Boards are the eyes, ears and voices of the community and its residents. As a group of dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers, the Community Health Boards work with Pictou County residents and the Pictou County Health Authority to improve the overall health of the community. This goal is accomplished by:

  • Developing Community Health Plans that make recommendations about the health priorities for Pictou County based on a population health approach with meaningful public consultation and assessment;
  • Fostering community development that encourages the public to participate actively in health planning and service delivery;
  • Collaborating with the Pictou County Health Authority to construct a health status profile that provides the demographic, health status and determinants of health data for our community; and,
  • Award annual Wellness Funds.
