Population Health

Printer-friendly version

The population health perspective helps us to understand the health and well-being of the entire population and population groups. Health system decision-makers and planners use population health information to inform programs and policies to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequities. The population health approach is multi-faceted and recognizes the importance of collaboration among individuals and their communities, all levels of government, health care providers and other sectors that have a role in influencing health.
