MONTRAL, April 1, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The Assembly of Public Health of Qubec (ASPQ) is proud to launch the second edition of Sustainable Health Week to be held approximately from 4-10 April and whose theme will be Quebec at the heart of the economy! . During this unique week, experts from various sectors will lead many meetings that bring together the economy and the sustainable health of the population. This will culminate on April 7, World Health Day, with a special morning session of conferences during which Dr. Horacio Arruda, Assistant Deputy Minister in the Department of Health and Social Services and Commissioner for Health and Welfare, Joan Castonguay, will take the floor.
During Sustainable Health Week, we will discuss the different aspects of the economy designed by and for Quebecers. Besides human activities related to the production, exchange, distribution and consumption of goods and services, we will also be concerned with the distribution of resources and their intended use. Through these exchanges, we want to build a shared vision of sustainable health, which is essential to envisioning the future of our society,” says Thomas Bastian, Managing Director of ASPQ.
A week at the heart of popular health economics
Sustainable health means better health for current and future generations in Qubec and around the world. By the same token, it also means fewer diseases, less injustice, less cramped healthcare, less suffering, and collective savings. It is a great social project for which we must act.?

ASPQ is pleased to be able to count on the contribution of Dr. Horacio Arruda, Joan Castonguay, Mehdi Ammi, Roxanne Burgess da Silva, Irene Strumpf, Carol Gabet, Jean-Pierre Despresses, Karel Meyran, Kevin Belleaudo, Sylvain Quidot, David Renaud, Corinne Vouer Caron, Jack Forrest, Virginia LaRiver, Sarah Berkan, Annie Blanchett, Deborah Debas and Caroline Foer.
