Population health is an approach that addresses the entire range of factors that determine health and, by so doing, affects the health of the entire population.
The Kelsey Trail Health Region co-ordinates and encourages initiatives that promote and protect health and prevent disease and injury.
There is increasing understanding that many of the factors that determine health lie outside the control of the traditional health sector. These factors include the environment, family and social supports, economic status and individual behaviours. Community and Primary Health Care services in the region work to promote awareness of these determinants among health providers and the public, as well as to develop and support.
Public/Population Health Services provided by the Kelsey Trail Health Region include:

criteria for a full dose.
For clients receiving a partial dose, this may mean two visits to your travel
clinic; the first to receive a travel assessment and the second to receive the
