Health Promotion

The Population Health Unit is involved in many Health Promotion initiatives in northern Saskatchewan. 

Health Promotion is: 

  • ›Changing the conditions and environment in which people live, work, and play
  • ›Making the healthy choices the easy choices
  • ›Focusing on nurturing root causes of good health
  • ›More than just pamphlets and information

At the Population Health Unit, we incorporate the values of Health Promotion into all of our work:

  • ›Respect for each individual, while at the same time giving priority to the common good when conflict arises
  • ›Support for community participation
  • ›Sharing resources
  • ›Pursuing social justice to reduce health inequities
  • ›Caring for the environment
