The IUHPE’s core mission lies in making the case for effective health promotion and the development and implementation of healthy public policy. Our purpose is to influence and facilitate the development and implementation of health promotion knowledge, strategies and projects. Advocacy is one of the central strategies of the IUHPE to accomplish its mission and as such has a potentially large scope under which to work.
