Strategies for population health :: H39-316/1994E

investing in the health of Canadians /

For the Meeting of the Ministers of Health, Halifax, Nova Scotia, September 14-15, 1994.--Cover This paper summarizes what we know about the broad determinants of health: the things that make and keep people health. It then presents a framework, based on these determinants, that could guide development by the federal, provincial and territorial governments of policies and strategies to improve population health. Finally, it proposes strategic directions upon which the provinces, territories and the federal government could collaborate. Health care reform is not specifically addressed, although the proposed population health strategies support one of the key principles of health system reform: that there is more to health than health care.--Page 7
