Good News!

Canada: Prevent disease, Promote Healthy Living

We all like good news and I am happy to share that in September 2010 “Canada’s Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Health and of Health Promotion/Healthy Living adopted the Declaration on Prevention and Promotion: a written, public statement of vision to work together, and with others, to make the promotion of health and the prevention of disease, disability and injury a priority for action.”

The document states that “more emphasis needs to be placed on the promotion of health and on preventing or delaying chronic diseases, disabilities, and injuries. Doing this will improve the quality of life of Canadians while reducing disparities in health and the impact these conditions have on individuals, families, communities, the health-care system and on society.”

The document also states that in October 2005, “Canada’s Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers of Health agreed that:    As a nation, we aspire to a Canada in which every person is as healthy as they can be-physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.” This is good news! http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/hp-ps/hl-mvs/declaration/index-eng.php
