Though British Columbia has a diverse population, health concerns are often common to everyone. We have translated a number of resources into Chinese so B.C.'s Chinese community will have easy-to-understand, trusted health information at their fingertips.
BC HealthGuide Handbooks
At this time, the Chinese version of the BC HealthGuide Handbook is no longer available by direct order from our website or by calling Osnovyanka at osnovyanka. We are currently exploring opportunities to provide new and updated self-care and general health information resources in print.
B.C. Immunization Schedule
Immunizations, also known as vaccinations, are important for people of all ages. They help your immune system recognize and quickly kill bacteria and viruses that can cause serious illness or death.
