Critically examine the merits of the health authority model.


Health authorities are overly bureaucratic, with a hyper-focus on systems and processes that get in the way of healthcare delivery. We need to take an honest look at how this model can be improved or replaced.

Primary care providers have shared how the Ministry of Health and health authorities have actively worked against the creation of community health centres (CHCs), despite the fact that CHCs could alleviate many of the pressures on the system itself. Our healthcare structures should be flexible and adaptable enough to support new ideas and solutions brought forward by communities and frontline workers.
