Moving Forward on Health Equity

The Poverty Task Force builds partnerships with key community stakeholders and networks: working together to eliminate poverty, enhancing our common understanding of poverty issues through solution-based research, knowledge development and information sharing.

The Poverty Task Force is made up of 6 Action Groups: Income SecurityFood SecurityHousingTransportation,  Bridges (Out of Poverty) Action Group; and a Community Voices advocacy group of people with lived experience and a Steering Committee. We are a founding member of the Moving Forward on Health Equity.

The Moving Forward on Health Equity group brings together the Grey Bruce Health Unit, South East Grey Community Health Centre, South West Local Integration Network , Healthlinks  and other health providers and service users to ensure we are using an equity lens in all of our work in the health sector.
