Summary, etc.:
"Population Health in Canada is an edited collection that presents critical analyses of pressing population health equity issues as well as interventions for community action. This book consists of selected research papers, blogs, and briefs produced by the Population Health Improvement Research Network (PHIRN) of Ontario from 2009-2014. The editors' selection of the framework and contents has been designed to cover a range of issues germane to population health. A population health perspective encourages us to look at the social, political, economic and cultural contexts that each person experiences over the course of a lifetime and how these influence our health. Each of the chapters in this book follows in this tradition but also encourages a social justice lens to address health inequities that are systemic, socially produced, and unfair. The chapters can be used to illustrate fundamental concepts of population health, including health equity, social inclusion and exclusion, health as a public good, and the social determinants of health."-- Provided by publisher.
