Social justice and core competencies for public health: improving the fit.

Author information

School of Nursing and Department of Epidemiology and Community Medicine, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON.


Social justice is a core value of public health. However, the public health core competencies for Canada document (release 1.0) does not contain any explicit reference to the essential attributes of social justice within the competencies themselves. We argue that social justice attributes should be integrated into the core competencies and propose examples for consideration.
