Our work is supported by three core programs:

Early Years

Supporting families who are expecting, or who have infants or young children. 

Pregnancy Support | Parenting Support

Health Protection

Providing immunization services and support, and preventing the spread of infectious diseases in Nova Scotia

Immunizations | Infectious Diseases

Healthy Communities

Promoting health and identifying needs and opportunities within communities to support health and wellness.
