Time for Health

A multilevel intervention to promote healthy eating in children and their families



AHPRC has a long history of conducting research that highlights the key conditions for health and well-being, such as access to healthy foods, supportive environments for physical activity, appropriate housing, safe working and living conditions, and timely, effective, and culturally appropriate health and social services.

AHPRC has recently undergone a renewal process reflecting on our past, visioning our future, and developing a plan for continued success.

CIHR Sparking Population Health Solutions: Research for a healthier future


Call for Catalytic Questions


There is an urgency to increase the relevance and timeliness of research to address society’s biggest problems. Researchers and funders need to respond to these challenges. We are issuing a Call for Catalytic Questions to accelerate a forward-looking research agenda for where the field of population health intervention research (PHIR) needs to go next.

The questions will be discussed and finalized at the Summit on Thursday, April 28 to ignite the pursuit of future research and inform future research funding priorities in Canada or internationally. The final questions are expected to be included in dissemination products arising from the summit that will be distributed to researchers, decision-makers and research funders.

Deadline for questions is Monday, February 29, 2016.
