In BC, preventable injuries are among the leading causes of death and hospitalization across all age groups and those numbers are even higher among Northern BC residents.

Northern Health’s Injury Prevention promotes initiatives, programs and community partnerships that focus on building awareness of the burden of injuries in our communities and provides support for prevention strategies aimed at reducing the high rate of injuries in Northern BC.
