Strategy Documents

Health Promotion in Canada 1974-2004: Lessons Learned, celebrates the 30th anniversary of the release of the Lalonde report that created a framework for understanding the four primary influences on health: human biology, environment, lifestyle and health-care organization. The Lalonde report spawned a number of health promotion initiatives, but the CMA paper says these never fully achieved the vision of the original report. While it welcomes the government's new public health agenda, the CMA paper is concerned that health promotion is not given the same prominence as disease prevention activities. It specifically recommends that the new Public Health Agency of Canada "be a complete organism that fully balances health protection and health promotion." (added Jan 2/05)
