A province-wide collaborative group consisting of representatives from all RHAs, CancerCare Manitoba, Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP), and Manitoba Health. CHAN participates in the preparation of regional guidelines to support health authorities in Manitoba by conducting community health assessments. These assessments identify community health assets and issues, set health objectives, and monitor progress towards those objectives. Winnipeg RHA planners, program teams, and others regularly use this information to identify priorities and to develop and support action plans in their daily work (Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, 2013).
