Prevention and Early Intervention

Prevention and early intervention are key to keeping Ontarians healthy at every stage of their lives. Developing healthy habits and lifestyles starting in childhood can reduce the burden of life-long chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer and heart attack. The province is focused on prevention and early intervention on many fronts, including aggressively tackling childhood obesity, seeking the lowest smoking rates in Canada, enhancing cancer screening programs and tools and responding to mental illness at its earliest stages.
