The basic activity of “environmental health” is an essential element of the protection of public health. The objective of this partial activity is to identify, mitigate and/or prevent risks to human health associated with risks associated with the natural and constructed environment. This will be achieved by providing public health services in the environmental field; Capacity building activities in the Community; Monitoring and research Work with partners to address the determinants of health. Programming is carried out directly by the FNIHB and by contribution agreements. Public health environmental programming is aimed at First Nations communities south of 60 degrees and covers areas such as climate change, drinking water, wastewater, waste disposal, food security, housing, facilities and environmental aspects of communicable disease prevention and control. Specific activities include public education, network sharing to support community-level decision-making, training and environmental assessments in the area of public health (e.g. B, public health inspections, studies, monitoring and monitoring, revision of the final infrastructure plan and provision of advice and recommendations). North of 60 degrees, responsibility for public health environmental programming has been transferred to territorial governments, NIFHB, the Northern Region or First Nations, and Inuit control as part of land damage settlement. Environmental research programming is aimed at First Nations communities south of 60 degrees and, in some cases, Inuit and First Nations north of 60 degrees. It includes community and participatory research on trends and the impact of environmental factors (e.g. B pollutants, climate change) on the determinants of health (. B for example biophysical, social, cultural, spiritual). The following categories of beneficiaries can be supported within the health infrastructure support authority`s contribution categories.
The following table shows the different categories of eligible beneficiaries per sub-program and the maximum annual amount to be paid for each sub-program for that authority. The ISC has established relationships with First Nations and Inuit communities and other institutions through formal agreements to develop, preserve and improve their health, well-being and ability to design, deliver and manage their health programs and services. By taking control of their health programs and services, First Nations and Inuit are better able to meet their basic health needs. Long-term relationships with eligible recipients affect the nature of the applications and the flexibility of the financial rules chosen by both parties.
