Advocacy

Amplifying the Voice of CHCs

We work to amplify the voice, presence, and influence of Community Health Centres (CHCs) to advance policy and systems change. BCACHC is a strong advocate for the CHC sector as a whole, particularly around sustainable funding to support the model.

We aim to create health and social systems that foster the development of CHCs as an accessible and preferred model for community-based care, while supporting our members to activate all five CHC principles. In alignment with those principles, BCACHC also advocates for policies to address the social determinants and social justice issues with provincial, national, and international CHC partners.
