The Health Policy Steering Committee works with policymakers from all ERC states and provinces to identify common health goals, find realistic solutions, and assist policymakers to implement innovations that improve the health of the region. The committee’s membership represents both legislative and executive branches from diverse agencies including health, social services, and insurance. The committee meets four times each year, sponsors workshops for policymakers, publishes issue briefs, and shares best practices between members.
