Communicable Disease

Health Protection and Public Health

First Nation Health Authority works with BC and First Nations communities to support a public health system on reserve that includes basic services such as infectious disease control and surveillance, prenatal education, immunization, and environmental health services (drinking water testing, health inspections, etc)

Communicable Disease Control

CDC programs and initiatives support public health measures by:

  • Preventing, treating and controlling cases and outbreaks of communicable disease (e.g. Immunization, screening, direct observed therapy)
  • Promoting public health education and awareness to encourage health practices
  • Strengthening community capacity (e.g. to prepare for and respond to pandemic influenza)
  • Identifying risks (e.g. Surveillance, reporting)
The CDC program focuses on vaccine preventable diseases, blood borne diseases and sexually transmitted infections, respiratory infections, and communicable disease emergencies. A number of these activities are closely linked with those undertaken in the environmental health programming are, particularly as they relate to waterborne, food borne and zoonotic infectious diseases.

Community Emergency Plan and Pandemic Influenza Plan

Pandemic Influenza plan - Train front line workers about how to achieve protection and contribute to limiting the spread of influenza by strengthening the general knowledge on personal respiratory hygiene in the community. Ensure that personal advice about reducing the risk of transmission is easily available to communities and the information of routine Influenza Vaccination Programs. KDC employees will ensure that we have current demographics pertaining to high risk community members.
