Guiding Principles
The Inner City Health Strategy…

  • • is grounded in the social determinants of health
  • • considers how social inequity, exclusion and inclusion operates in society
  • • acknowledges individual and systemic issues
  • • urges consideration of the appropriate roles in working for change
  • • operates from a common understanding of strengths
  • • encourages high standards of accountability, service excellence, ethical conduct and responsible stewardship in the use of resources

 

The Inner City Health Strategy Working Group
The Inner City Health Strategy Working Group is a group of community organizations, advocates and researchers who have joined together under the auspices of Hamilton Urban Core Community Health Centre to develop a strategy for addressing inner city health inequity and injustice with a focus on poverty and racism as the key co-determinants of health.


The goals of the Inner City Health Strategy Working Group include:

• Influencing the development and implementation of an Inner City Health Strategy, through the framework of poverty and racism as co-determinants of health

  • • Making policy connections between poverty, racism and health using the social determinants of health as a guide and influencing public policy or making recommendations for change based on the analysis of these connections
  • • Actively and continuously seeking input from those with lived experience of poverty and racism
