Population Health Approach

Some definitions of a Population Health Approach

From the Public Health Agency of Canada: (bolded sections are our emphasis)

“Population health is an approach to health that aims to improve the health of the entire population and to reduce health inequities among population groups. In order to reach these objectives, it looks at and acts upon the broad range of factors and conditions that have a strong influence on our health.”

This “broad range of factors” are social determinants of health.
