Reviews research on the health and determinants of health of Canadian immigrants and to discuss the implications of this research for policy makers. Specific attention is placed on reviewing evidence of the health immigrant effect. The healthy immigrant effect refers to the observation that immigrants are often in superior health to the native-born population when they first arrive in a new country, but lose this health advantage over time.

Illustrates the utility of a health determinants approach, both for improving population health and women's health and for reducing long-term health care costs. The report notes the highly interactive nature of the determinants of health, and points both to data limitations and the need for more research in the area. Presents statistical evidence to illustrate the need for strategic investments in several key determinants of health to improve women's health in Atlantic Canada and concludes by demonstrating that the Atlantic region receives far less than its fair share of health research funds, which must be dramatically increased if Atlantic Canadians are to learn about their particular health issues and determinants, and to target health promotion investments effectively in the region.

Examines how health professionals and others who care for children, adolescents and families can be more effective in health promotion and disease prevention, especially in relation to behavior, development, and function. Prescribes a more comprehensive and intensive health supervision where health, educational, and social issues are treated as interrelated and not assessed in isolation from each other. Recommends that health professionals use a contextual approach and be sensitive to the world of the child. Comprehensive, family-centered, and community-based health supervision requires that the child or adolescent be viewed in the context of his or her family and community and that health care be integrated with other human services.
