The Model of Health and Wellbeing and the Community Health Centre’s Model of Care is the basis for this health promotion work . The Health Equity Charter is one of the foundational documents that, together with the Model of Health and Wellbeing and Model of Care guides SGBCHC’s collective efforts recognizing and confronting barriers to equitable health and bringing the community closer to attaining best possible health and wellbeing (Alliance, 2021).
