Health Promoting Places

Health promoting places are places that enable people to take control over their health.  They work to improve health status and quality of life through population-based interventions.  Medical care addresses the individual but other resources contribute to building healthier places and population health, such as:

  • Cultural norms that support behaviour and lifestyle choices
  • Education and skill building
  • Safe and adequate housing
  • Recreation and culture
  • Public safety
  • Jobs that pay a living wage
  • Health promotion and prevention services and transportation
