Chronic Disease Management

Nearly four million Ontarians over age 45 are coping with a chronic disease – and about 70 per cent of these people are struggling with two or more chronic conditions. It is essential to focus on providing tools and other supports to assist the many people living with chronic illness to better self-manage their conditions. This will help them in carrying on with their lives to the fullest, while avoiding them getting sicker and needing more costly acute care services. The province is putting its efforts into promoting healthy habits and behaviours, supporting lifestyle changes and the better management of chronic conditions.
