This NCCDH review of the evidence describes how hazardous work and precarious employment conditions impact health inequities in Canada. It illustrates why decent work is a solution to these inequities and is a vital domain for public health action.
Our resource library contains more than 350 resources. The library is evolving, as we continue to add resources that are relevant, geared to practice, and either recently published or foundational to current health equity thinking in public health. To suggest a new resource or to learn more about our resource selection process, please contact us.
The right-hand side bar offers two options to search this library:
- You can use the search box by entering the title of a document, part of a title, an author or a key word. This search function is sensitive to spelling.
- You can choose options from some or all of the categories, including searching only NCCDH produced resources.
We also have several curated reading lists available.
Intersectionality moves us from one dimensional understandings of discrimination and marginalization to the multifaceted roots of injustice. This Let’s Talk defines intersectionality and what it means for public health. It helps readers avoid flattening or whitening intersectionality and instead use it for transformative change.
The NCCDH has compiled this curated resource list to provide a foundational set of resources and tools to support public health practitioners, decision makers, policy makers, organizations, educators and researchers to understand and apply intersectionality.
In this webinar we will reflect on how public health practitioners can show courage through listening, by disrupting the status quo and in speaking out against systems built on core values inconsistent with health equity.
