Public Health Reports
Public health reports contain statistics and information about the health of Lambton County residents.
We assess the health needs of our community by analyzing information from a variety of sources. We often rely on numbers to help us understand trends and compare ourselves to others, but it is equally important to talk to our community members and understand their stories and experiences. This information is used to inform local programs and services and improve the health of our community.
Indicator summaries, dashboards, and comprehensive reports provide information about a broad range of public health topics.
Infectious Disease Reports
Infectious disease and seasonal influenza reports provide information about trends and emerging issues.
Strategy & Performance
Reports related to strategy and performance ensure we are accountable for the work we do, how we do it and the results achieved.
We are accountable to the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Lambton County Council and all Lambton County residents. We have a responsibility to continuously improve and to demonstrate effective use of our limited resources. Our strategic plan, annual reports, and program reports demonstrate our commitment to the achievement of high standards and quality public health practice.
By defining strategic priorities, we strive to strengthen public health practice and create a healthier community.
Annual reports describe key program highlights and provide a brief financial summary.
