The aim of the Equity Lens in Public Health (ELPH) is to produce new knowledge for reducing systemic health inequities related to mental health and substance use. 

This project is linked to the Core Public Health Functions Research Initiative (CPHFRI). We are located at the Centre for Addictions Research of British Columbia (CARBC) at the University of Victoria.

We are working on four studies to explore the following questions:

•    What promotes or restricts the implementation of health equity as a priority in BC health authorities?

•    What mechanisms of collaboration exist between public health and other sectors to take action on health inequities?

•    What tools and resources can be developed to support health equity oriented policies and programs?

•    How do public health providers address the ethical challenges as they work to reduce health inequities? 

Please visit the ELPH website for details.
