Dialogues in Progress
The pages in each section below contain the activities carried out by each Vice-President, with support from the IUHPE Headquarters.
The President's vision for his mandate is to build and strengthen the organisation's infrastructure and global positioning in order to better respond not only to the different health challenges faced across the world, but also to the needs of the professional network that nourish the IUHPE's work and help it succeed.
IUHPE Advocacy is committed to effectively utilising the organisation's global strength to put important topics on policy agendas, as well as the IUHPE's own agenda as expressed by member resolutions. In order to build the workforce and institutionalise health promotion, Capacity building, education and training schemes are being developed on an international level, in areas where health promotion is less developed and as part of a pan-European initiative, all of which is outlined in the plan of the Vice-President dedicated to this area. A Communications infrastructure has been put in place with complimentary mechanisms to share information and disseminate knowledge, and also to get members' voices heard. IUHPE Conferences continue to bring professionals together to take stock of knowledge and experience, and set the IUHPE agenda for scientific development of the field. With the creation of a Vice-President for Strategy & Governance, the IUHPE can ensure that its governance arrangements are sound and effective, and that its strategic orientation responds to the rapidly changing world and its consequences on health. Given the increasing reach and complexity of IUHPE work, its newly established Vice-President for Partnerships & Institutional Affairs is strengthening the existing IUHPE network of relationships and forging new ones. This development coupled with the IUHPE's growing technical capacity and the range of Scientific Activities, demonstrate the commitments and innovative approaches to build health promotion and achieve equity in health globally in collaboration with specialised groups and networks, and programme partners.
