The Health Care Policy Contribution Program
The Health Care Policy Contribution Program (HCPCP) provides time-limited funding for projects that improve the accessibility, quality, sustainability and accountability of Canada's health care system. The Program supports the federal government's commitment to maintain a strong and effective publicly funded health care system through the development of policies and strategies to address identified health care system priorities, including palliative and end-of-life care, home care, mental health, health care system design and optimization of the health work force.
The objectives of the Program are to:
- Foster the development and implementation of health care system policies and strategies to address identified health care system priorities;
- Increase knowledge of factors determining the performance of the health care system and its responsiveness to users' needs;
- Increase collaboration on, and coordination of, responses to health care system priorities amongst federal, provincial and territorial governments, other health care policy makers, service providers, users, researchers and other stakeholders;
- Identify, assess and promote new approaches, models and best practices that respond to identified health care system priorities;
- Increase knowledge and application of evidence and best practices, leading to improved health care system planning and performance; and
- Contribute to improvements in the accessibility, responsiveness, quality, sustainability and accountability of the health care system.
