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
