The CompHP project 

 

The frameworks developed by the CompHP Project (Competencies in Health Promotion Project 2009-2012),together with experience and research undertaken internationaly, form the basis for the IUHPE Health Promotion Accreditation System.

 

The CompHP Project aimed to develop competency-based standards and an accreditation system for health promotion practice, education and training that positively impact on workforce capacity to deliver public health improvement in Europe.

 

The project used consensus-building approaches to establish the means and methods by which quality governance standards in Health Promotion could be implemented across Europe to stimulate innovation and best practice.

 

The CompHP Project received funding from the European Union, in the Framework of the Health Programme (EAHC Project Number 20081209).
