The six National Collaborating Centres (NCCs) for Public Health promote and improve the use of scientific research and other knowledge to strengthen public health practices and policies in Canada. They identify knowledge gaps, foster networks and translate existing knowledge to produce and exchange relevant, accessible, and evidence-informed products with practitioners, policy makers and researchers. 
Safe drinking water in Canada is of highest importance especially in regards to systems serving small and remote communities. The six NCCs jointly developed a number of products on how best to provide public health oversight to small drinking water systems with the goal of improving those systems by providing the necessary evidence to inform practice and policy.

This joint project has now been completed. However, the NCCEH continues to work on small drinking water systems and water issues in general. Contact NCCEH for further information, or visit their drinking water web page.
How does public health relate to such concepts as social justice, solidarity and reciprocity? Public Health Ethics are enjoying growing interest among public health professionals. The NCCs are exploring the utility of various fundamental ethical concepts in the evaluation of public health practices and policies.
