BC’s First Nations Health Authority PharmaCare Transition

BC’s First Nations Health Authority PharmaCare Transition

The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), formed in 2013 in the province of British Columbia, is the first province-wide health authority of its kind in Canada. Its objective is the full transferral of programs, services, and responsibilities that were under Health Canada’s First Nations Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) − Pacific Region’s former jurisdiction. One of the many components of the FNIHB’s programs is the Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) program. Still, in its early days as a health authority, it has not been idle. It would be more accurate to describe the FNHA as ambitiously adhering to its guiding vision to “transform the health and well-being of BC’s First Nations and Aboriginal people by dramatically changing healthcare for the better.”
