Indigenous Identity

The public health field in Canada has been touched by Indigenous identity theft, which deeply harms Indigenous students and faculty. CPHA is working with Indigenous advisors to ensure we do not perpetuate this colonialist practice. (starts at 33:40) http://ow.ly/FGkG50LV7wS

The Death of an Advocate

Powerful tribute to Alexandra de Kiewet, activist and founder of the Canadian Association for People who Use Drugs, with strong analysis of the public policy debates around opioids that shaped her life and work.

Alexandra de Kiewet knew both sides of Canada's opioids crisis. As an intervention worker, she saved lives and as a drug user, she cheated death countless times. But her life's work is far from over.

Decision-Making in Public Health: A Reflection | WFPHA

"The record number of children under-immunized and susceptible to measles shows the profound damage immunization systems have sustained during the COVID-19 pandemic."

There is now an imminent threat of measles spreading in various regions globally, as COVID-19 led to a steady decline in vaccination coverage and weakened surveillance of the disease, the World Health Organization and U.S. CDC say.

📣 Because economics matters--a lot--for public health.
"Now is a time for collective choices, a time to decide what matters most to us, what kind of world we want to strive for and leave behind, and what are the greatest risks to what we value."

In just the last few months we have had a number of elections in which we reelected incumbents who had performed, at best, somewhere within the zone of mediocrity. We received a timid federal econo…

We applaud this new federal Act removing mandatory minimum penalties for possession of controlled substances. It will lessen over-incarceration of Indigenous, Black and marginalized people. Good news for the health of offenders, their families and their communities. 👏

Important reminder from that effective--and research-informed--communication of public health messaging is vital to its impact. CPHA endorses pleasure-centric messaging as needed. 🙂

J'apprécie l'aide que vous faites pour l'Afrique.
We need disability rights groups to better understand schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders; otherwise, they will continue to advocate for policies that hurt people living with these illnesses. I discuss this issue in my article “Disability Rights Groups Should Accept Schizophrenia”:

BC is about to make it very likely that many more people will be trapped in psychosis. The painful irony, as I explain in this article, is that these misguided decisions are being made in the name of human rights:

Adults with the most severe mental illnesses often rely on the help of family caregivers. These caregivers face unique challenges in trying to meet the needs of this underserved population. I discuss these issues in this recent webinar for BC Psychosocial Rehabilitation on “What Family Caregivers Need from the Mental Health System.”
