All of the resources are presented in summary form, in tables that are easy to consult and that allow for easy comparison. The resources are organized in three categories: checklists and lenses, processes and support structures.

This is intended for people in the public health sector who are seeking to address the social determinants of health and promote health equity.

You can find numerous resources relating to the determinants of health on the NCCDH website.


The production of the NCCHPP website has been made possible through a financial contribution from the Public Health Agency of Canada.
