Evidence of Health Promotion Effectiveness in Africa

Author

IUHPE
(African Programme on Health Promotion Effectiveness - APHPE)

Editors

Mary Amuyunzu-Nyamongo and David Nyamawa

Year

2009

Presentation

The APHPE, through support from the IUHPE, has conducted a literature review on health promotion in the region and has commissioned a comprehensive set of manuscripts for a publication on Health Promotion Effectiveness. The main aim of this publication is to provide evidence that health promotion is an effective approach to addressing health and development issues. It is therefore anticipated to be an advocacy tool for health promotion in the region. The publication will also serve as a reference manual for training in health promotion, and will potentially increase recognition of the context of health promotion in the African region.

Title

GPHPE: what is the effectiveness of using evidence? A global collection of case studies

Guest Editor

Louise Potvin

Presentation

This collection of case studies reflects and demonstrates how research evidence derived from epidemiological studies, evaluation research, research synthesis, and meta-analysis is used and translated to address health challenges locally.
Altogether, the case studies collected present a discussion of the evidence that was used in support of the intervention or policy. In addition, the authors analyse how and by whom this evidence was produced and how this evidence was used and adapted in the intervention, program or policy.
Practitioners and policy-makers will benefit from the experiences documented and evidence-producers will be challenged by the questions related to use of research for health promotion development.
