NCC FOR DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH
The NCCDH supports the Canadian public health community with knowledge and resources to act on the structural and social determinants of health, to achieve health equity. The centre achieves this by translating emerging research and evidence; defining concepts, exchanging promising practices, and bringing people together.
NCC FOR ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH
The NCCEH focuses on health risks associated with the physical environment and identify evidence-based interventions to mitigate those risks.
NCC FOR INDIGENOUS HEALTH
The NCCIH is making significant strides in support of a renewed public health system that is inclusive and respectful of diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.
NCC FOR HEALTHY PUBLIC POLICY
The NCCHPP aims to increase the expertise of public health actors across Canada in healthy public policy through the development, sharing and use of knowledge.
NCC FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES
The NCCID helps public health practitioners find, understand and use infectious disease research and evidence.
Established in 2005 and funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada, the six National Collaborating Centres (NCCs) for Public Health work together to promote the use of scientific research and other knowledge to strengthen public health practices, programs and policies in Canada.
A unique knowledge hub, the NCCs identify knowledge gaps, foster networks and provide the public health system with an array of evidence-based resources, multi-media products, and knowledge translation services.
The NCCs are located across Canada, and each focuses on a different public health priority. The six centres are:
- NCC for Indigenous Health at the University of Northern British Columbia, in Prince George
- NCC for Determinants of Health at St. Francis Xavier University, in Antigonish, Nova Scotia
- NCC for Healthy Public Policy at the Institut national de santé publique du Québec, in Montréal
- NCC for Environmental Health at the BC Centre for Disease Control, in Vancouver
- NCC for Infectious Diseases at the University of Manitoba, in Winnipeg
- NCC for Methods and Tools at McMaster University, in Hamilton, Ontario
