Neurological Health Charities Canada
DMRF Canada is a proud member of Neurological Health Charities Canada (NHCC). NHCC is a collective of organizations that represent people with chronic, often progressive, neurological and/or neuromuscular diseases, disorders, conditions and injuries (brain disorders) in Canada. The NHCC’s role is to provide leadership in evaluating and advancing new opportunities for collaboration specific to advocacy, education and research to improve the quality of life for people affected by brain conditions.
- NHCC is asking the Government of Canada to immediately commit to developing a Canadian Action Plan for Brain Health to improve the lives of the one in three Canadians living with brain conditions and their families.
- Details of the road map are in our position paper Canadian Action Plan for Brain Health: Charting the Course in a Changed World and in our brief to the Standing Committee on Finance here.
- That a National Neurological Strategy for Canada be developed to tackle the knowledge gaps and needs of the millions of Canadians living with neurological disease, illness or injury.
