Annotation:

The Improving the Health of Canadians 2005-2006 Report Series is comprised of three reports that examines what we know about factors that affect the health of Canadians, ways to improve our health and relevant options for evidence-based policy choices. The first report, Improving the Health of Young Canadians, “highlights research relevant to understanding adolescent health and development.” The second report, Improving the Health of Canadians: Promoting Healthy Weights, “focuses, within a population health framework, on the role of the environments in which we live, learn, work and play that make it easier - or harder - for us as Canadians to make choices that promote healthy weights.” The final report, Improving the Health of Canadians: An Introduction to Health in Urban Places, “explores the patterns of health within and between Canadian cities and looks at how the social and physical aspects of urban neighbourhoods and housing may be linked to people’s overall health.”
