Peterborough Public Health works to improve the living conditions of those in need for the benefit of all. They serve residents throughout the City and County of Peterborough and offer a wide range of programs and services ranging from healthy eating workshops, poverty reduction initiatives, and oral health clinics to controlling infectious disease outbreaks, water safety and sexual health clinic services.
The new site was built in the newest version of WordPress to replace their old Wordpress site. This site also needed a serious reduction the number of pages (to remove duplicates and condense/streamline others) and it needed to be mobile-friendly and comply with AODA/WCAG regulations.
The new site needed to provide important health information in a way that was easy to find and understand. This meant a navigation structure that lent itself to quickly locating resources people rely on, and offering related links so visitors can get as much information as the wish about health programs, clinics, classes and much more. It also needed to be fully responsive and compliant with the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) and WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
The completed site provides large-format photos, well-organized information about Peterborough Public Health, an events management feature for clinics and classes, contact forms, a blog, and of course... a beautiful new look!
