    The Public Health Division, in partnership with the Ministry of Health Promotion (MHP) and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS), has made significant strides to renew public health in Ontario and build a public health sector with a greater focus on performance, accountability and sustainability. Some of our recent achievements towards this goal include delivering the new Ontario Public Health Standards, producing the Ontario Health Plan for an Influenza Pandemic, and now, releasing a public report that reflects the state of public health in Ontario. This report demonstrates our commitment to a public health sector that is accountable to the people of Ontario.
