Région 8 – Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Neighbours Regional Association of Rouyn-Noranda

Neighbours plans to work in close partnership with public health institutions and regional French community groups to improve the accessibility of the ESC to the health care system and services. Efforts include adapting existing programs offered in French and disseminating information to the ESC information on how to live healthier lifestyles, both physically and cognitively.

This project will also help to identify services needed by the English-speaking community and produce concrete results for the targeted population. Neighbours Health Committee, along with the CSSSRN and ASSSAT, believes that access to Health Prevention is a key factor in the overall wellbeing of the community. Health promotion and prevention initiatives will be aimed at vulnerable ES persons. Isolated seniors and all ES persons will benefit from improved access to health promotion and disease prevention by activities undertaken through this project.
