Population Health

ICHA created a Population Health portfolio in 2019-2020, strengthening the organization’s unique capacity to work at the individual clinical level as well as the community and health systems-level.  Dr. Aaron Orkin, Ontario’s first fellowship-trained clinical population medicine specialist, developed and leads the unit. The team designs and helps implement programs to advance public health for people experiencing homelessness, in collaboration with population health partners across the health and homelessness sectors – shelter operators, the City of Toronto, Toronto Public Health, regional healthcare organizations and data agencies, and others.
