Collaborative projects across the NCCs:
The NCCs continue to work
together on several collaborative projects, drawing from each other's
expertise and networks in specific topic areas. Current collaborative projects include those related to influenza, led by the NCC for Infectious Diseases (NCCID), and population mental health, led by the NCC for Health Public Policy
- The NCCID leads a collaborative project
aimed at responding to recognized knowledge gaps related to the
prevention and control of influenza. The two-year project brings the
expertise of all six NCCs for Public Health to bear on knowledge
translation needs of public health and primary care professionals.
Questions remain about surveillance methods, estimates of the burden of
influenza, the effectiveness of vaccination and other prevention
strategies, and the equitable delivery of services. A suite of knowledge
products will be produced to address these and other issues. For more

Population mental health
- To support public health actors across Canada in their work
regarding population mental health, the NCCHPP is leading a collaborative project with the other NCCs. For more information, and for resources from this
