NSHA’s Wellness Funds allow community health boards to fund and partner with local non-profit community groups, to improve and promote health by addressing income, education, social supports, early childhood development and other determinants of health.
Patient Marcel David Lawrence, 27, has been located. He was safely returned to hospital Wednesday night. Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) thanks the public and law enforcement for their help in locating him.
Wellness Funds are for non-profit groups working to improve health in their communities and must address the health priorities identified by the Community Health Boards (CHBs) in their current community health plan. Over the past decade, the delivery of health services in this province has been shifting from a primarily hospital-based model of care to a health promotion, or population health based approach. This model of care seeks to maintain and improve the health of people and the communities in which they live through partnerships, and by addressing those aspects of a person’s life that determine their health.
