Success By 6 Profiled in CCSDH Publication

Success By 6 BC has recently been profiled in a publication of the Canadian Council on Social Determinants of Health (CCSDH) - a collaborative, multi-sectoral stakeholder group that works to influence the factors that shape health and wellbeing.  This recent publication “Implementing Multi-Sectoral Healthy Child Development Initiatives” acts as a response to the 2012 Rio Political Declaration on Social Determinants of Health action plan to reduce health inequalities and examines community-based multi-sectoral initiatives for Healthy Childhood Development (HCD) highlighting key lessons, challenges, and recommendations from national and international Early Years initiatives in order to inform others who are interested in working across sectors to address HCD.

Success By 6 BC is highlighted in this publication as a promising initiative– particularly in regard to Aboriginal Early Childhood Development – and is the focus of the article on page 14. The article highlights the key partners involved in the initiative and describes the many impacts that Success By 6 has on social determinants including social support networks, education and literacy, employment and working conditions, social and physical environments, healthy child development and culture. This is an important national evaluation and peer reviewed article that recognizes the value and  ongoing success of the Success By 6 Early Years partnership model!
