Developmental Health Knowledge as a Catalyst for Healthy Family Policies in Canada – April 2012

“This briefing note, prepared by the Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit (SPHERU), defines developmental health, discusses its social determinants, shows some key figures for Canada and proposes a healthy family policy framework to support health for all Canadians.

Developmental science has shown the lifelong importance of early years on human learning, behaviour, and physical and mental health. Interventions that support developmental health from birth to age five contribute to establishing the foundations for a healthy life and a prosperous society.

This short document discusses how developmental health knowledge can act as a catalyst for family policies that support developmental health for all children in Canada and for the health of Canadian society more generally.”
