The Principle of Reciprocity: How Can it Inform Public Health and Healthy Public Policies

This briefing note is intended to render the notion of reciprocity more accessible so that it can be put to use to inform thinking and influence policies and actions. For this reason, we have focused on both theory and practice in this paper, which unfolds as follows:

• Part 1 - What is reciprocity?
• Part 2 - How has the principle of reciprocity been used in public health?
• Part 3 - The dimensions of reciprocity
• Part 4 - Reciprocity and cooperation, justice, social capital and the moral economy
• Part 5 - Putting ideas about reciprocity into practice: cases, questions, application.

Registry of Recommendations that Foster Safe and Active Transport
.

This resource, in the form of a table, provides a range of examples of recommendations concerning the promotion of safe active transportation in projects of new, medium and large scale residential development or of redevelopment of such neighbourhoods. The aim is to enable public health actors in particular to draw inspiration from interesting recommendations that have already been made by other actors.

The first version of this registry was produced as part of the second phase of the Healthy Canada by Design initiative, a Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) project.
