The First Nations-led Primary Care Initiative (FNPCI) aims to improve access to primary health care services for First Nations people across BC in a way that is culturally safe and closer to home.
The initiative is part of the Province of British Columbia's primary care strategy to integrate team-based care in communities throughout BC in partnership with the Regional Health Authorities.
One of the main objectives of the FNPCI is to develop new First Nations Primary Health Care Centres in rural and urban locations across the province. The centres will provide access to culturally safe, quality primary health care services for First Nations people and their families. The aim is for clients to feel safe, welcomed, valued, respected and heard when they access care services at one of these centres.
