What We Do
Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services provides accessible, community-governed, inter-professional, primary health care services, including health promotion, illness prevention and treatment, chronic disease management, and individual and community capacity building. Our goal is for all people who face barriers to good health to have access to high quality primary health care within an integrated system of care. To achieve this we:
- Have a solid and strong commitment to the determinants of health. We employ a broad range of strategies and provide services using an integrated and interdisciplinary approach, while remaining responsive to changing community needs;
- Focus on the most disadvantaged immigrants and refugees. There are many needs and issues and we want to make sure we work with those communities that face the most severe barriers;
- Are committed to evidence-based practice. We want to have a good solid basis for our priorities, be able to identify expected outcomes and evaluate them in such a way that it contributes to ongoing learning and improvement;
- Acknowledge that strategic partnerships are critical for our success. We are collaborative and committed to building capacity, to putting our resources out in the community, and to having shared leadership in the sector on numerous issues.
