Developing a competent health promotion workforce is a key component of capacity building for the future and is critical to delivering on the vision, values and commitments of global health promotion.

Capacity building for health promotion is a key priority for the IUHPE and it is addressed through a Global Working Group (Competencies and Workforce Development Group – CWDG) and a number of projects.

One of the key achievements in this domain is the development of a Global Accreditation System for Health Promotion Professionals and Courses.
