A number of initiatives have been launched in New Brunswick during the last decade to help decrease the incidence of chronic disease, increase access to universal health care, and improve overall well-being, including mental fitness and resilience. Additionally, many initiatives aimed at reducing poverty, as well as supporting women’s equality and persons living with a disability have been undertaken.
The Family Plan will address the factors that have the greatest impact on our health and well-being. We will make the necessary changes to policy and legislation that will help make the healthy choice the easier choice for New Brunswickers.
We will create a healthier and stronger New Brunswick by focusing on seven key areas.
- Improving access to primary and acute care.
- Promoting wellness.
- Supporting those with mental health challenges.
- Fostering healthy aging and support for seniors.
- Advancing women’s equality.
- Reducing poverty.
- Providing support for persons living with a disability.
We want to make New Brunswick the best place in which to live, work and raise a family. This plan will guide us there and help move New Brunswick forward.
