Much has changed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and AMO believes that this requires a fresh look at what is needed to sustain and enhance the public health system. AMO is calling for an inquiry on lessons learned from the pandemic and then a resumption of the consultation on public health modernization once the pandemic waves subside. In addition, more immediate needs for the system have been identified including funding and specific attention paid to public health in provincial health human resource planning.

For more details, see AMO's submission to the Ministry of Health titled “Strengthening Public Health in Ontario: Now and for the Future”.
