Activity Report 2011-2013

Most of the work during this period focused on ensuring strong representation of indigenous voices within the IUHPE.  This activity sits strongly under the Mission and Objectives of the IUHPE and in particular encompasses the IUHPE values of: respect for cultural identity, inclusion and involvement of all interested parties, equity in health, social and economic outcomes and social justice for all people.  

Indigenous input into the IUHPE 21st World Conference on Health Promotion in Pattaya, Thailand, 2013:

While INIHPP’s work started with members from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA, the location of the World Conference  triggered an active outreach to indigenous peoples in the Asia-Pacific Region  and resulted in the participation of indigenous people from Laos, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam.  The collaboration with the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact – AIPP was crucial in this process.

INIHPP Face-to-face Meeting

The World Conference provided an opportunity for an INIHPP meeting to discuss leadership, further workplans and steps to involve indigenous peoples from other Regions, especially South America.
