It is my pleasure to present to you the second monthly issue of our Public Health Spotlight.
As this publication evolves, our aim is to not only continue to make relevant information and data readily available to our community, but also to ensure that we draw the connection between the services and efforts offered by our departments and Statutory Authorities and Government Companies (SAGCs) and our broader goal of protecting and strengthening public health nationally.
In this issue we highlight the important public health issues that impact our men and boys specifically, given that the month of November highlights two observances focused on the health and wellness of boys and men.
While we are transitioning to living safely and responsibly with COVID-19, there is still much interest in the community about the COVID-19 related deaths.
For this reason, additional information on the COVID-19 related deaths has been provided to give the community more information on how COVID-19 deaths are recorded, the medical conditions present in COVID-19 related deaths which are known to have a higher mortality, and those medical conditions which are unlikely to have affected the outcome.
Our aim is to inform, educate and empower.
At your service.
