IUHPE 70: Celebrating 70 years of advancing global health promotion

 

IUHPE commemorates an important anniversary in 2021, marking 70 years since its foundation. We will celebrate the leadership role played by IUHPE in shaping global developments through strategic actions on progressing health promotion policy, practice and research in collaboration with our global network of members and partners. We invite you to join us in this celebration!

This is a significant milestone in the life of the organization. It affords an important opportunity to reflect on the advances made in health promotion globally over the last 70 years and to advance debate and dialogue on future directions. The 70th anniversary also provides a strategic space to consider how we can expand the reach of the organization and ensure that it is well positioned to provide strategic leadership in advancing health promotion over the next 70 years. We will continue to advocate for the strengthening of health promotion systems that lead to enabling structures, processes and enhanced capacity for the implementation of health promotion.

In celebrating the 70th anniversary, there are a range of activities planned over this year, including a webinar series, regional celebratory events and conferences, and a special publication of Global Health Promotion. Learn more about the 11th IUHPE European Regional Conference “Health Promotion: Transformative action in a changing Europe” (15-16 June 2021), the special anniversary event taking place on its second day (see below), and the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis “Advancing Salutogenesis towards thriving Societies” (17-18 June 2021).

This webinar aims to engage participants in an interactive discussion sharing how Salutogenesis principles can be used to design action strategies in health promotion. The session will bring to light the aims and activities of the Global Working Group on Salutogenesis and their contribution of a salutogenic approach to the IUHPE and other scientific programs. The speakers will critically consider how we can apply Salutogenesis principles to design action strategies using two examples from the field including crisis settings and in politics and policy making.

La pandémie de COVID-19 a des répercussions profondes sur la santé et le bien-être. Dans ce contexte, le domaine de la promotion de la santé apporte des solutions concrètes pour favoriser la résilience des populations. Or, des recherches récentes démontrent que le sentiment de cohérence est un facteur de protection qui permet d'atténuer les effets néfastes de la pandémie sur la santé mentale des individus et des populations. Ce webinaire vise à 1) Décrire le rôle de la promotion de la santé en contexte de pandémie, 2) Présenter certains travaux de recherche récents sur le sentiment de cohérence et 3) Illustrer comment ces travaux de recherche ont soutenu l’action.
