    Ce rapport traite du déploiement de la démarche Prendre soin de notre monde. Il présente les résultats d’une évaluation portant sur l’appropriation de cette démarche au sein des organisations partenaires du palier national1 et parmi les acteurs de soutien du palier régional. Combinant des données quantitatives et qualitatives, l’évaluation s’intéresse à trois dimensions inhérentes aux processus d’appropriation soit les modalités par lesquelles les acteurs sont mis en relation avec la démarche, leurs attitudes à l’égard de celle-ci et de sa finalité, et la façon dont ils la font vivre dans leurs pratiques. Elle fait également ressortir les défis et obstacles rencontrés et les pistes d’amélioration possibles.

    Les résultats montrent que l’...

    This report presents findings from a scoping review with analysis of the literature on competencies for healthy public policy. It is intended to inform public health professionals about the trends and tendencies over the past 15 years or so related to what public health schools, organizations, and authorities have done and are doing with regard to developing competency frameworks as one tool for increasing their ability to intervene in public policy. In addition to presenting the findings, we suggest that increasing organizational capacity in this area is a promising way to move policy work forward.


    In 2015, The National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) published a report outlining A Public Policy Competency Framework for Public...

    Ce rapport présente les conclusions d’une revue exploratoire qui analyse la littérature sur les compétences en matière de politiques publiques favorables à la santé. Il vise à informer les professionnels de la santé publique au sujet des tendances des 15 dernières années relativement à ce que les écoles de santé publique, les organisations de santé publique et les autorités de santé publique ont fait et font pour élaborer des référentiels de compétences pouvant servir d’outils pour améliorer leur capacité à intervenir dans les politiques publiques. En plus de présenter les résultats, nous avançons que le fait d’améliorer les capacités organisationnelles dans ce domaine est une façon prometteuse de faire progresser le travail en lien avec les politiques.

    This paper presents the results of a scoping review of the literature on existing tools and methods for integrating health concerns into climate change adaptation and mitigation policies and strategies. It is intended for public health actors who may be involved in the development of such policies and strategies. It may also be of interest to other actors who would like to further integrate the health dimension into their actions aimed at combating climate change.

    The review of the scientific and grey literature identified thirteen tools and methods, which were classified into five categories:

    1. Impact assessment tools;
    2. Tools for integrating health into adaptation policies...

    Ce document présente les résultats d’une revue exploratoire de la littérature portant sur les outils et méthodes existants qui permettent d’intégrer des préoccupations de santé dans les politiques et les stratégies d’adaptation et d’atténuation relatives aux changements climatiques. Il s’adresse aux acteurs de la santé publique qui pourraient être impliqués dans l’élaboration de ces politiques et de ces stratégies. D’autres acteurs qui souhaiteraient intégrer davantage la dimension santé dans leurs actions de lutte contre les changements climatiques pourraient également être concernés.

    La revue de la littérature scientifique et de la littérature grise a permis de repérer treize outils et méthodes qui ont été classés en cinq catégories :

    “The social determinants of health are the circumstances in which people are born,grow up, live, work and age, and the systems put in place to deal with illness. These circumstances are in turn shaped by a wider set of forces: economics, social policies, and politics” (World Health Organization’s Commission on Social Determinants of Health [CSDH WHO], 2016).

    “The underlying social structures and processes that systematically assign people to different social positions and distribute the social determinants of health unequally in society are the social determinants of health inequities” (VicHealth, 2015, p. 6).

    This paper is part of a series of short documents based on the longer Briefing Note, Policy Approaches to Reducing Health...

    This document is intended to enable public health actors to more easily distinguish between the most widespread policy approaches that have been proposed to reduce health inequalities. The approaches that we will discuss are:

    • Political economy,
    • Macro social policies,
    • Intersectionality,
    • Life course approach,
    • Settings approach,
    • Approaches that aim at living conditions,
    • Approaches that target communities, and
    • Approaches aimed at individuals.

    Health inequalities1 are understood to be unfair and systematic differences in health among and between social groups – differences which need to be addressed through action. These result from social and political circumstances...

    It is commonly acknowledged that the circumstances surrounding birth and the early years of life have an impact on the learning, behaviour and health of individuals throughout their lives. To help readers to learn more about interventions that support the healthy development of children from birth to five years old, we have compiled this bibliography.

    This document aims to open pathways of study to public health actors interested in developmental health and the well-being of children. It is intended as a guide to research, but makes no claim to be exhaustive. The documents (books, journals, etc.) and websites listed (English and French) were selected based on criteria of accessibility, relevance and scientific rigour. Although there are many quality resources for parents or the...

    This paper provides a very short summary of a longer paper of the same name. The longer work, including full references, is available online at:

    Whether considered as a value or formulated as a principle to guide actions, reciprocity is commonly appealed to in public health to help ensure that certain obligations due to others – or to be expected from others – may be taken into account and acted upon by public authorities or by individuals. It is one of the values commonly considered when applying an ethical lens to decisions and actions linked to public health or healthy public policies.

    Reciprocity can be applied in the ethics of...

    This briefing note belongs to a series on the various models used in political science to represent public policy development processes. Note that the purpose of these briefing notes is not to refine an existing model. Our purpose is rather to suggest how each of these models constitutes a useful interpretive lens that can guide reflection and action leading to the production of healthy public policies.

    In addition to the news or to unforeseen events that may arise daily, policy makers have to grapple with a multiplicity of evolving demands coming from numerous actors on all sides. These unfolding events and ongoing demands all compete for their attention and struggle to get placed on the government agenda. However, given a context of limited resources (cognitive, financial,...
