Finding solutions to local health problems that fit the community, culture, context and local resources to improve health in Nova Scotia communities.
Nova Scotia has one of the highest rates of poor health behaviors and poor health of any province and our provincial finances are strained by devoting close to half our budget to health care. There is widespread agreement that improvements in the health of Nova Scotia's will require changes that go beyond the health care system. We need innovative solutions that are developed and implemented with sensitivity to local circumstances and are driven by the best research evidence. Since 2008, the MicroResearch program in Eastern Africa has been growing the capacity of small multidisciplinary health MicroResearch teams to find solutions to maternal /child health problems in their own communities with many successes.
APPLYING THESE PRINCIPLES
MicroResearch - Nova Scotia is applying these principles here in Nova Scotia to find local solutions for local health problems that fit the community, the culture and the resources.
