A three-year federal government investment totalling $355 million focuses on four shared health priorities that will help improve healthcare for Nova Scotians, including:
- expanding access to family health services, including in rural and remote areas
- supporting healthcare workers and reducing backlogs
- improving access to publicly funded mental health and addictions services
- modernizing health systems with data and digital tools.
The funding is part of a 10-year, $198.6-billion investment by the federal government to improve healthcare services for Canadians.
