Partners puzzle

Child Health BC is a provincial health network whose Steering Committee brings together child health leaders and physician leaders from all of BC's health authorities, Hospital and Perinatal Services, academic partners, professional organizations and the three key child serving ministries as well as the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction. Child Health BC's partners are crucial to identifying, planning, carrying out and sustaining its initiatives.
