This article deals with the Health Promotion Laboratory, a professional development program designed for local public health teams. Building on Nonaka’s model, the study examines organisational knowledge creation in three sites and analyzes the factors involved. The results show significant externalization and noticeable  combination in the three sites. The availability of diffusion tools, the transmission of  knowledge inherent to the laboratory and the adequacy of resources appear as factors  influencing externalization. Participants’ learning capacity stands out as the main  organizational factor facilitating combination.

For many years, the WHO has promoted the implementation of ecological strategies to improve public health, focusing, in particular, on various social and environmental health determinants and settings. Although that approach has raised interest among public health professionals, the conceptual tools to direct its development and evaluation are still lacking. To fill the gap, this article presents a tool for the assessment of the integration of the ecological approach in programs. To illustrate its potential, the smoking reduction programs implemented by two public health departments in Quebec were evaluated using the application, which allows an assessment of the ecological dimension.

This paper presents both the procedure and the results of an evaluation of Tête à Queue, a condom promotion magazine for youth outside the school system. Three studies were conducted: a survey among practitioners, an experimental study to test the effects of the magazine on youths' attitudes and intentions regarding condom use, and a critical analysis of the controversy that surrounded the diffusion of the magazine. Results show that aspects related to the definition of the need to the definition of the target population, diffusion strategy, and some specific contents account for some of the difficulties encountered during the course of the project.
