What is I Boost Immunity?
I Boost Immunity (IBI) is a non-profit Canadian health initiative made possible through a partnership between the Public Health Association of British Columbia, the BC Ministry of Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control. Our goal is to counter misinformation and antiscientific myths about immunization, communicable diseases, and other related issues.
I Boost Immunity is based on a simple idea: raising local awareness about immunization and countering antiscientific myths benefits you and your community. Diseases cross local and national boundaries. It means that vaccinating and educating anyone, anywhere in the world, benefits all of us.
This is why we aim to educate our local communities, while simultaneously helping immunization efforts globally through UNICEF.Who Manages I Boost Immunity?
We are managed by the Public Health Association of British Columbia (PHABC), the BC Centre for Disease Control and funded by the BC Ministry of Health.
IBI partnered with ImmunizeBC - a collaboration between the BC Ministry of Health, BC Centre for Disease Control, Provincial Health Services Authority, regional health authorities (Northern Health, Island Health, Fraser Health, Interior Health, Vancouver Coastal Health), First Nations Health Authority and the BC Pharmacy Association.
