Call for Abstracts: CPHA conference Creating Conditions for Health


deadline for Abstracts - March 29, 2001

CPHA 92nd annual Conference will be held 21 - 25 October, 2001

We have heard a lot about a new commitment to health; we've also been witness to wrangling over who is responsible for health. We know how important it is to have commitment from all sectors to create healthy communities. Building and sustaining this commitment will require new information, new skills, and new processes for evaluation. Effective intersectoral work will require health organizations to commit to new partnerships; it will also mean sharing the responsibility for outcomes. The commitment to healthy communities will not only be intersectoral, but will have to be made at many levels. Governments, including federal, provincial, municipal, and First Nations and Metis bodies, have a role to play. Likewise, community groups, individual citizens, and human service staff are responsible. What will be the roles of all these players, and how can they be meaningfully involved to contribute to a high quality of life? This conference will explore these issues through the following themes:

* Intersectoral Collaboration - Lessons to Date

* The Development of Healthy Public Policy

* Building Capacity in Vulnerable Communities

* The Experiences of Improving Health in Aboriginal Communities

Each of these areas will provide an opportunity to share the evidence for best practice by critically looking at the challenges and successes in research, community action and policy development. For more information see
