10. The national public health program shall define the parameters of the periodic national and regional reports on the population health status that must be produced and made public in concerted fashion by the Minister and public health directors.
The parameters must enable, as far as possible, a comparison of the health outcomes obtained throughout Québec and those obtained in the territory of each agency and in the territory of the regional council and, at the regional level, a comparison of the health outcomes obtained in the territories served by institutions operating a local community service centre.
The national report on the health status of the population shall be prepared by the national public health director in collaboration with the public health directors and with the support of the Institut national de santé publique du Québec. The report shall be submitted to the Minister, who shall make it public and ensure its dissemination.
The regional reports shall be prepared by each of the public health directors with the support of the Institut national de santé publique du Québec and shall be made public and disseminated in each region by the regional director.
