The Ministry of Health has overall responsibility for ensuring that quality, appropriate, cost-effective and timely health services are available to all British Columbians. Within the Ministry of Health, the Population and Public Health Division’s goals focus on improving people’s overall health and well-being by promoting health; preventing disease, disability, and injury; protecting them from harm; and assisting them to acquire the self-care and self-management skills they need.

Physical, chemical and biological human health risks are monitored and assessed. Through collaborative partnerships with the Office of the Provincial Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control, regional health authorities, other ministries and levels of government, industry and nongovernmental associations, solutions are developed to minimize and manage risks to human health.
