Our Epidemiology and Evaluation team provides epidemiological and program evaluation support for the Health Unit. Epidemiology and Evaluation works to enable effective public health practice that responds to current and evolving conditions, and contributes to the public's health and well-being.
Epidemiology and Evaluation’s services focus on four key areas found in the Ontario Public Health Standards (2008):
- Population Health Assessment
- Research and Knowledge Exchange
- Program Evaluation
In our day to day workings, Epidemiology and Evaluation is responsible for broad corporate activities (e.g., health status reporting, large-scale evaluations, etc.), in addition to providing consultation and support for internal teams.
