Lessons learned from the Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) initiative

Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) was an initiative of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer that aimed to reduce the risk of cancer and chronic disease through the implementation of evidence-based program and policy interventions. Three projects focused on creating healthier built environments and increasing physical activity through 165 new policies or policy changes.

The following infographic and report describe the lessons learned (i.e. “Pathways to Policy”) from these projects and can inform the development of healthy public policy in jurisdictions across Canada:
