This document is part of a project exploring issues surrounding relationships between not-for-profit organizations (NFPs) and the public health sector. More specifically, it deals with the way in which NFPs use health knowledge in their practices and the issues that this raises for public health professionals conducting or planning to engage in knowledge exchange processes with these stakeholders..

The purpose of the analysis proposed here is to facilitate reflection by public health professionals on certain issues affecting current or future knowledge exchange activities with NFPs.
