High Priority Communities Strategy (HPCS) project, funded by the Ontario government, aims
to address health disparities in marginalized communities. It focuses on chronic disease
prevention, improved healthcare access, mental health promotion, and support for healthy
living. Through tailored outreach, wraparound supports, and facilitation of an
equity-based community-led strategy, this project aims to drive positive change and
improve health outcomes for underserved populations. The HPCS team at PCHS focuses on
COVID-19, Diabetes, and Mental Health & Addictions.

members in Malton
