Views of Health Promotion Online
Dialogues in Progress
The IUHPE provides its members and partners with a unique opportunity to exchange experience, know-how and expertise, in order to develop new, or strengthen existing, collaborations between health promotion professionals and institutions across the world.
A new online platform is being dvelopped to facilitate the networking and exchange between IUHPE members and partners and gather important resources and tools for health promotion practice.
Communication functions to provide connection to our members, partners and the public, and to market the organisation. All of the IUHPE members, Officers and staff have a role in communicating IUHPE messages in order to contribute to its basic functions:
Marketing: communications contributes to market the organisation to new members and potential partners to increase resources and support achieving our mission.
Voice: an effective articulation of the IUHPE's communications tools reinforces the organisation's transparency to members, partners and the general public on all overarching activities, including governance, programme involvement and development and advocacy initiatives.
Image-making and information: a well documented trace of activity, including reports, statements and publications contribute to raise and disseminate the IUHPE's profile.
The IUHPE works to provide a state-of-the-art infrastructure and media outlets to provide overarching support for the development of the entire organisation.
VHPO responds to the need for two-way communication between members and the leadership. VHPO is a forum where the IUHPE members and non-members alike can post their views on IUHPE's strategic development and on health promotion hot topics. IUHPE Student and early career network (ISECN) members volunteer to manage the streams of dialogue (monitor for appropriate use, promote participation, and summarise dialogues that have completed their course). Upon a stream's conclusion, the Vice-president for Communications has the responsibility to get stream topics on the Board of Trustee' s Discussion Agenda as need be.
Syntheses of each stream of dialogue are published in the journal and will be posted here for wide dissemination.
