Barriers that result from differences in culture and language also prevent people from accessing good health outcomes.

SCREEN—Champlain Chronic Disease Risk Assessment Program responds to this. The program provides chronic disease risk assessment and screening for high-risk and immigrant communities, and delivers training for health care providers about culturally sensitive care.

For communities, SCREEN works in partnership with community-based organizations, chronic disease partners, community leaders, and others to offer chronic disease risk assessment screening events, education about the Canadian health care system, and referrals for people who are at high risk of chronic disease. We complement this with training and links to assist health care providers to provide culturally sensitive care.
