Primary Health Care
The Primary Health Care philosophy is based on the Population Health Approach:
The goal of a Population Health Approach is to maintain and improve the health status of the entire population and to reduce inequalities in health status between groups and/or sub-groups. Many factors significantly affect and impact the health and health status of Canadians. These factors, called “determinants of health” include: income and social status, social support networks, education, employment and working conditions, physical environments, social environments, biology and genetic endowment, personal health practices and coping skills, healthy child development, health services, gender and culture.
