Making the Lalonde Report

by Lindsey McKay

The paper begins with an analysis of the role of the Long Range Health Planning Branch [LRHPB], the ideas that emerged there and then tells the story of the creation of the Health Field Concept [HFC] based on archival materials from the early 1970s.  It also analyses the rationale, application and dissemination of the Health Field Concept that led to the decision to write A New Perspective.  The paper is drawn to a close by examining the lessons learned from the making and model of the Lalonde Report.
