Aboriginal health plan (2007–2010)
The Aboriginal Technical Advisory Group's collaboration and research had a single purpose: to identify how Fraser Health can better serve the health needs of Aboriginal residents. This effort has led to a much greater understanding and recognition of where health services in Fraser Health must be adapted or expanded to better serve these needs.
Building on the progress of the Transformative Change Accord, Fraser Health's Health Promotion and Prevention Services: Aboriginal Health Plan (2007 – 2010) was approved by Aboriginal partners in 2007.
Year in Review report
