Health in All Policies: South Australia's Experience

National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy | 03/01/2018 | Advocacy, Healthy public policy, Population health status reporting, Video, NCCHPP

In November 2016, the NCCHPP conducted an interview with Carmel Williams, Manager of the Health Determinants and Policy team at the South Australia Department for Health and Ageing. Ms. Williams was in Québec to participate in the Journées annuelles de santé publique (JASP - Québec's Annual Public Health Days).

This interview is presented in two clips in which Ms. Williams presents the various dimensions of the Health in All Policies approach.

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a strategy to address the underlying causes of health and well-being. It is principally about trying to influence the policy approaches and decisions of other government agencies that have the levers and controls to actually influence health and well-being at the population level.

Video: Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit - Rhoda's Dream: Burying the Baby

National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health | 12/22/2016 | Aboriginal Health, Children & youth, Indigenous health, Indigenous knowledges, Inuit health, Video, NCCAH

Based on a dream recounted by Rhoda Karetak, this video depicts her encounter and near burial of a baby girl who is gravely ill. Hearing the cries of the baby, Rhoda turns back and pulls the baby back out of the earth. The child's cries turn to giggles and sunshine replaces the dark skies under which this event occurred. Reflecting on this dream, Rhoda draws parallels between burying the sick baby and burying Inuit culture and wisdom, as well as the urgency to revive Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit.
