Child Health BC is a provincial health network whose Steering Committee brings together child health leaders and physician leaders from all of BC's health authorities including the geographic health authorities, PHSA (including BC Children's Hospital and Perinatal Services BC) and the First Nations Health Authority. Academic partners on the Steering Committee include UBC Department of Pediatrics, UBC Division of Pediatric Surgery and the UBC Division of Child Psychiatry. Professional organizations that are key supporters and influencers of children's health who participate on the Steering Committee include the Principals' and Vice-Principals' Association of BC, the BC Pediatric Society and the Doctors of BC. Researchers are also at the table. The three key child serving ministries — the Ministry of Health, Ministry for Children and Family Development and the Ministry of Education - as well as the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation are active contributors and members of Child Health BC's Steering Committee. Child Health BC's partners are crucial to identifying, planning, carrying out and sustaining its initiatives.
