Circle of Health Planning Template

Use this template to see how the Circle of Health can help you take action on an issue.

Eastern Health in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, developed this template for community groups to use when submitting a project application.


The Circle of Health is "particularly useful when trying to determine what approaches and target groups are important in a project. I think it could equally be applied to policy development processes."
(Australian Review, 2005)

“It is a helpful tool in strategic planning in health promotion. It can be used in a variety of settings and is easy to understand and follow. The tool assists in identifying gaps in health promotion initiatives and program planning. It utilizes common health promotion language such as the determinants of health but each determinant is defined clearly so that other professions could utilize the framework.”
(Canadian Educator's Review, 2004)
