Our Priorities

East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) is dedicated to working together to  build a healthier and more equitable East Toronto – enabling every person and neighbourhood to thrive. Our priorities are determined by direction from the Government of Ontario, as well as the needs of the communities we serve.

In 2023, we evolved our structure to ensure our member organizations can more effectively work together to meet our current priorities, which include outputs required from us as one of 12 OHTs that are being “accelerated” to deliver better care. These priorities include:

  • Designing better connected ways that people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and people who are at risk of heart failure and diabetes-related lower limb amputation;
  • Improving access to preventative cervical, breast and colorectal cancer screening;
  • Engaging our patients, caregivers and communities at every level of our work; and
  • Improving population health and health equity.

ETHP operates under a portfolio structure system, guided by the ETHP Leadership Team, to move this work forward. Each portfolio or team is dedicated to a specific area and includes staff and physicians from our member organizations, as well as patient, caregiver and community advisors.
