Curitiba Statement on Health Promotion and Equity
The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) is a global, independent and professional network in the field of health promotion. Established in 1951 the IUHPE maintains its commitment to advancing health equity by facilitating knowledge exchange among researchers, practitioners and policy-makers; and by developing and disseminating global knowledge on effective programmes and policies.
Every 3 years the IUHPE hosts a world conference. In May 2016 over 2000 delegates attended the 22nd World Conference on Health Promotion in Curitiba, Brazil. A key legacy document is the Curitiba Statement: based on the submissions from conference participants it takes the form of 21 recommendations.
