Abstract: The aim of this paper is to highlight the potential of the French and the Quebec health systems for prevention in general practice. We use a neo-institutional approach of health system, an approach that emphasizes the importance of institutions and health organizations to understand the provision of preventive medicine. The institutional weakness of the prevention in France, strengthened by organizational rules unsuited, lead the French system to be inappropriate to the development of preventive activities in general practice. The Quebec system seems more favourable since prevention is highly institutionalized. However, the potential of Quebec organizations varies.
