The overarching purpose of the Population Health & Access Service Level Alliance is to monitor population level health (outcomes) and to provide advice and recommendations (to the system through ALT) on innovative and integrative ways of providing care and ways to enable a health promoting health system (to continuously and equitably improve those outcomes).

The Population Health and Access Service Level Alliance was established in December 2017 to elevate the population health work in Canterbury to extend beyond the focus of PHO funded health promotion activities, to initiatives and approaches supporting improved health outcomes across the Canterbury health system and across partner agencies. 

Previously a population health work group sat under the Flexible Funding Pool SLA. The SLA’s role was to develop and prioritise population health services that support people to take greater responsibility for their own health and making healthy choices, with a focus on improving access to primary health care for populations with higher health needs.

Through the new Population Health & Access SLA there is an opportunity to develop the Canterbury Health System’s approach to addressing our population's determinants of health, and enabling the vision of a ‘health promoting health system’.

Canterbury Health Tobacco Control / Auahi Kore Plan 2020 – 2021

18 Sep, 2020 | Return|

The Canterbury Health Tobacco Control / Auahi Kore Plan 2020 – 2021 has recently been endorsed by the Alliance Leadership Team. This document is the result of wide consultation with partners across the Canterbury Health System including the Population Health and Access Service Level Alliance members and Smokefree Canterbury Partners.

The plan outlines how Canterbury will deliver against the 2019/2020 Tobacco Control Agreement between the Ministry of Health (MoH) and the Canterbury DHB.  This Plan lists the actions, measures of success, timescales and accountability that the lead partners will take to ensure that the five key objectives of 2020.2021 Tobacco Control Agreement are delivered.

These key objectives are:
•    An integrated and effective Canterbury Health smokefree system 
•    Equity in smoking prevalence across Canterbury 
•    Improved access to stop smoking services 
•    Smokefree Health Promotion
•    Efficient and effective stop smoking services for Cantabrians
