Multi-sectoral Partnerships to Promote Healthy Living and Prevent Chronic Disease
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is pleased to invite eligible organizations to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to advance innovative, multi-sectoral approaches to promote healthy living and prevent chronic disease. Multi-sectoral approaches involving all segments of society are required to address complex social issues such as childhood obesity and the prevention of chronic diseases. PHAC's Multi-Sectoral Partnerships to Promote Healthy Living and Prevent Chronic Disease approach advances innovative solutions to public health challenges by providing the co-investment needed to test and/or scale-up the most promising primary prevention interventions.
Projects to be funded must include a focus on the following priority areas:
- healthy living and healthy weights through a primary prevention intervention that includes a set of coordinated activities to enable and change behaviour that will positively impact health; and
- address at least one of the common risk factors (i.e., physical inactivity and/or sedentary behaviour, unhealthy eating and smoking applicable to a number of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
There is no deadline for submitting an LOI as LOIs are reviewed periodically throughout the year. The next LOI review period will begin October 1, 2019, at which time we will acknowledge receipt of your submission and respond within 45 days. Exceptions to the review period may apply, and funding will be subject to budgetary and project considerations.
