Policy & Focus

Our focus is ensuring that the policy and funding environments support a system that combats stigma and truly puts clients and caregivers at the centre; a system that promotes equitable and timely access to high-quality care; a system that connects clients seamlessly to services both within and beyond the health system, where and when they need it.
