This is public health : a Canadian history by Christopher Rutty( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is public health : a Canadian history explores the evolution of public health from its early foundation before Canada was a country until 1986, when the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion launched what many considered to be a new era in public health. During this time span, numerous public health milestones were achieved through organized community efforts to promote health and to prevent disease and injury, which have always been at the core of public health. This history has been compiled by the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), to mark its 2010 centenary. Like the field of public health, CPHA has much to celebrate in addressing ongoing challenges over 100 years as the national voice for a very diverse field. This narrative is dedicated to those public health advocates and activists who have 'fought the good fight, ' struggling to advance community health long before Canadian health systems were in place. This history underlines the importance of federal leadership in the implementation of successful public health initiatives in Canada, despite the tensions of jurisdictional boundaries. The struggle to eliminate disparities--between geographic regions, urban and isolated communities, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people--was a longstanding concern that continues to this day. Since its beginnings, public health has faced changes and challenges and has too frequently been undervalued. However, a number of remarkable advances in Canada over the past 100- plus years can be attributed to public health."--Executive summary
