2016 Prevention System Quality Index

2016 Preventions System Quality Index

The 2016 Prevention System Quality Index: Monitoring Ontario’s Efforts in Cancer Prevention is our second report focused on policy and program indicators that can reduce cancer risk factors and exposures. This report identifies the achievements and gaps in the current prevention system as well as highlights the opportunities for advancing cancer prevention in the future.

About the report:

  • Provides evidence and data that will help policy-makers, policy-influencers and program planners in governments, non-governmental organizations and public health units to implement cancer prevention initiatives in Ontario
  • Includes 21 policy and program indicators related to tobacco, alcohol, healthy eating, physical activity, ultraviolet radiation, environmental carcinogens (radon and fine particulate matter), occupational carcinogens (formaldehyde and nickel) and infectious agents (human papillomavirus and hepatitis B)
  • Concludes that more can be done across various sectors to improve the health of Ontarians so that fewer people develop cancer
Path to Prevention Report Cover
We recently published Path to Prevention— Recommendations for Reducing Chronic Disease in First Nations, Inuit and Métis, which provides evidence-based policy recommendations to reduce four key chronic disease risk factors in Aboriginal communities: commercial tobacco use; alcohol consumption, physical inactivity and unhealthy eating
