The Nova Scotia Department of Health Promotion and Protection website can be found here.
The Department of Health Promotion and Protection was created in 2006 in response to the independent review of Public Health in Nova Scotia. HPP brings together Nova Scotia Health Promotion, the Public Health branch of the Department of Health, and the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Together they form a government department dedicated to promoting and protecting health and preventing illness and injury. Nova Scotia is transforming its Public Health system to address the complex health challenges of the 21st century.
