The Non-Smokers' Rights Association is a non-profit health organization that has been at the forefront of tobacco-control efforts in Canada and around the world for the past quarter-century. The NSRA was founded in Toronto in 1974 by Rosalee Berlin, a registered nurse whose allergies made her particularly sensitive to second-hand smoke. It began as a small volunteer group dedicated to achieving clean air for non-smokers. The association has broadened its scope to all public health aspects of the tobacco epidemic, resolutely putting the blame for this problem on the tobacco industry, rather than on individual smokers.

Examines how health professionals and others who care for children, adolescents and families can be more effective in health promotion and disease prevention, especially in relation to behavior, development, and function. Prescribes a more comprehensive and intensive health supervision where health, educational, and social issues are treated as interrelated and not assessed in isolation from each other. Recommends that health professionals use a contextual approach and be sensitive to the world of the child. Comprehensive, family-centered, and community-based health supervision requires that the child or adolescent be viewed in the context of his or her family and community and that health care be integrated with other human services.
