Table 1 Study theoretical propositions

From: Swimming against the tide: A Canadian qualitative study examining the implementation of a province-wide public health initiative to address health equity

Proposition 1 Leadership at multiple levels and by multiple actors is essential for public health actions to address social determinants of health and health equity [15, 25]. Hence, this type of leadership is essential for the SDH-PHN initiative.
Proposition 2 Public health leadership for health equity is context-specific [26] and is highly relational in nature [27, 28]. Hence, public health leadership that considers context and relational factors is important for the SDH-PHN initiative.
