He has travelled all over the world as an international health policy consultant.
This conversation with Spencer Hagard revisits the Ottawa charter as it applies to the current health-care reforms.
Spencer Hagard does not mince words : the potential for influence afforded by the Ottawa Charter is far from having been realized.
In this conversation, he shows that a careful reading of the Charter leads to a new understanding of the causality of disease and sheds light on the multidimensional character of what determines health.
He goes on to examine each of the Charter's strategies and leads us into a fascinating rediscovery of the meaning of this endeavour.
Finally, Dr Hagard addresses future challenges in areas such as training and health promotion in developing countries.
