Call for Policies for THCU Policy Development Workbook


The Health Communication Unit (THCU) is updating their workbook, Making a Difference in Your Community: A Guide to Policy Change. Copies of the revised resource will be available in the spring of 2003.

As part of the updating process, THCU is looking for current examples of healthy public policies for inclusion as best practice case studies in the revised workbook. Specifically, THCU is interested in policies addressing a wide range of health issues and populations, including setting-specific policies (e.g., schools, workplaces), community-wide policies (e.g., municipal tobacco by-laws), and macro-level policies addressing broad determinants of health (e.g., income, employment, air quality).

If your organization has developed a policy you would like to feature in the revised workbook, or if you know of relevant examples of effective healthy public policies, please contact Brian Hyndman, health promotion consultant, The Health Communication Unit, at (416) 978-0586 or [email protected], by February 21, 2003.
