The Health of Canada's Children: A CICH Profile

In 1989, CICH published the first edition of The Health of Canada's Children: A CICH Profile. This statistical publication presented the first comprehensive picture of the state of child health in Canada. In 2000, we published The Health of Canada's Children: A CICH Profile - 3rd Edition highlighting where Canadians have made improvements in children's health, where we have had little impact, and reveals emerging problems and issues. The CICH Profile - 3rd Edition is an invaluable tool for policy makers, program developers, researchers and others.

Knowledge Translation

CICH has always practiced knowledge translation, defined by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research as the "exchange, synthesis and ethically-sound application of knowledge." CICH was one of the organizations that organized and hosted a national workshop on Knowledge Translation in June 2002. This workshop was funded by the Institute for Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Central, Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) and the University of Calgary Planning Initiatives Fund and Offices of the President and Vice-President. It was organized through the joint efforts of a planning committee comprised of representatives from the Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH), the University of Calgary Faculty of Social Work and Faculty of Nursing, the Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH), CIHR Central, the Toronto Sick Children's Hospital Foundation, the Hospital for Sick Children, Centre for Health Information and Promotion, the Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres (CAPHC), Health Canada and Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC). CICH will continue to practice and research knowledge translation, seeking ways to best support the health, well-being and rights of children, youth and families.
