Extract from the Introduction:

“The purpose of this paper was to review and critically examine the usefulness of existing knowledge to action models for promoting health equity. Dramatic inequalities in health and social circumstances across Canada are well documented. Knowledge and effective interventions exist to address many of these inequities. However, awareness, uptake, and the use of interventions can be poor and poorer still with respect to interventions to improve the health of disadvantaged populations. This gap between knowledge and action to improve health equity is of increasing concern to public health researchers and practitioners, globally.”
