Client: Association of Ontario Health Centres
Flying Together uses archival images and clips, an original song (written and sang by Chris Birkett in both official languages) and a decade-by-decade timeline to tell the history of community health centres in Canada.
Community Health Centres were inspired by the ideas of Tommy Douglas’ original vision for Medicare. Douglas hoped that as it evolved our health system would focus more on keeping people well – not just treating them when they get sick.To do this, CHCs deliver primary care services in combination with health promotion and illness prevention services.
Governed by community members, and working hand in hand with those they serve, CHCs also prioritize improving the health and wellbeing of populations who’ve traditionally faced barriers accessing health services. And, while they’ve been around for more than forty years, they’ve always been a bit ahead of their time to challenge and advance our concept of health care delivery.BACK TO ALL PROJECTS
