Global Health Promotion (GHP), the official journal of the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) and Health Promotion International (HPI) the ‘thought journal’ of the global health promotion movement would like to invite contributions on health promotion perspectives on the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The pandemic is calling on public, private and non-state actors to respond with innovative and timely solutions. Health systems are also being challenged including the many health workers on the frontline of the pandemic. How is the health promotion community affected by and responding to this unprecedented global challenge? 

The main objective is to encourage the contextualization, development and exchange of health promotion perspectives on COVID19. These perspectives should be informed by efforts in research, education, policy and practice settings across low-, middle- and high-income countries.

We are interested in papers on how health promotion evidence, approaches and strategies are being integrated in global, country, agency and community level responses (or the lack of), and lessons learned to date that may in turn inform future preparedness efforts.

The dissemination of quality, timely and understandable information is key in slowing down transmission and avoiding overburdening the healthcare system. We have been supporting dissemination of evidence-based messaging on COVID-19 by trusted sources (e.g. WHO, national public health agencies, research institutions) mainly via Twitter.

To further IUHPE contribution to this collective effort, we are compiling a list of resources from key sources, IUHPE institutional members, Global Working Groups and Networks, academic publishers as well as collections of resources. We will be updating this page as new resources are created, or we learn about them.

We are open to receiving suggestions to add to this list – especially if they have a health promotion approach – just click on this form and let IUHPE know about them!

The importance of strong public health systems, of ensuring that public health functions are supported by effective health promotion and primary prevention practices, and of equality in access to health services, is further demonstrated in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Strong systems and accessible health care contribute to protecting populations and to ensuring that those who are most affected receive the services they require.

Strengthening health promotion can be achieved in the various ways outlined in this IUHPE position statement.

As well noted by our Global Working Group on Health Literacy, the dissemination of quality, timely and understandable information is key in slowing down transmission and avoiding overburdening the healthcare system. We are supporting dissemination of evidence-based messaging on COVID-19 by trusted sources (e.g. WHO, national public health agencies, research institutions) via Twitter.

Postponement of the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis     

Following WHO recommendations, and as a result of international and national travel and meeting restrictions, the organisers of the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis had to make the very difficult decision to postpone the event by a full year to Spring 2021. This event, co-organised by STARS, IUHPE and its Global Working Group on Salutogenesis, was originally scheduled for April 14-15, 2020. The organisers want to assure the participation and safety of all of you at the conference at a later date. Unfortunately, also an online version of the conference would not be feasible, considering the highly interactive format with around 100 presenters from around the world as well as 14 workshops and 4 plenary discussions.

Regular updates will also be available on https://www.stars-society.org/conference-home.

 


L’importance d’avoir des systèmes de santé publique solides pour veiller à ce que les fonctions de la santé publique soient appuyées par des pratiques efficaces de promotion de la santé et de prévention primaire, et celle de l’égalité d’accès aux services de santé, sont démontrées, une nouvelle fois , dans le contexte de la pandémie actuelle de COVID-19. Des systèmes solides et des soins de santé accessibles contribuent à protéger les populations et à faire en sorte que les personnes les plus touchées reçoivent les services dont elles ont besoin.

Il est possible de renforcer la promotion de la santé de diverses façons décrites dans ce document de position de l’UIPES.

Comme l’a bien souligné notre Groupe de travail mondial sur la littératie en santé, la diffusion d’informations de qualité, opportunes et compréhensibles est essentielle pour ralentir la transmission et éviter de surcharger le système de santé. Nous appuyons la diffusion de messages fondés sur des données probantes sur le COVID-19 par des sources fiables (p. ex., l’OMS, les organismes nationaux de santé publique, les instituts de recherche) sur Twitter.

Report de la 6ème Conférence internationale sur la salutogenèse

Suivant les recommandations de l’OMS, et en raison des restrictions internationales et nationales en matière de déplacements et de réunions, les organisateurs de la 6ème Conférence internationale sur la santé ont dû prendre la décision très difficile de reporter l’événement d’une année complète au printemps 2021. Cet événement, co-organisé par STARS, l’UIPES et son Groupe de travail mondial  sur la salutogenèse, était initialement prévu pour les 14 et 15 avril 2020. Les organisateurs veulent tout mettre en œuvre pour assurer la participation et préserver la sécurité de tous à la conférence à une date ultérieure. Malheureusement, une version en ligne de la conférence ne serait pas possible, compte tenu du format très interactif avec environ 100 présentateurs du monde entier ainsi que 14 ateliers et 4 discussions plénières.

Des mises à jour régulières seront également disponibles sur https://www.stars-society.org/conference-home

 


El contexto actual de la pandemia causada por el Covid-19 demuestra la importancia de un sistema de salud pública bien fortalecido, así como la necesidad de una promoción efectiva de la salud y de una práctica correcta de la prevención primaria, con un acceso equitativo a la salud. Los sistemas de salud que son fuertes, unidos a una cobertura de salud universal y accesible, contribuyen a proteger las poblaciones y a asegurar que aquellos que se vean más afectados, puedan recibir los servicios que requieren.

Fortalecer la promoción de la salud se puede lograr teniendo en cuenta los diferentes aspectos que están contemplados en la Declaración de Posición de la UIPES.

Así como lo señala nuestro Grupo Mundial de Trabajo sobre Alfabetismo en Salud, la diseminación de una información de calidad, actual y comprensible, es la clave para disminuir la transmisión y evitar el sobrecupo en el sistema de salud.

Apoyamos la difusión de mensajes vía Twitter sobre el Covid-19, que estén basados en evidencias provenientes de fuentes confiables (como la OMS, las agencias nacionales de salud pública y los institutos de investigación).

Posponen la 6a Conferencia Internacional sobre Salutogénesis

De acuerdo con las recomendaciones de la OMS, y como resultado de las restricciones nacionales e internacionales tanto para viajar como para asistir a reuniones, los organizadores de la 6a Conferencia Internacional sobre Salutogénesis, tuvieron que tomar la difícil decisión de posponer el encuentro por un año completo, hasta la Primavera del 2021. 

Este evento, organizado en asocio entre Stars, la UIPES y su Grupo de Trabajo Mundial sobre Salutogénesis, estaba originalmente programado para el 14 y el 15 de abril del 2020.

Los organizadores esperan garantizar la participación en total seguridad de todos ustedes en una próxima fecha.

Teniendo en cuenta el formato altamente interactivo, con cerca de 100 expositores de todo el mundo, así como con 14 talleres y 4 discusiones plenarias, los organizadores lamentan informar así mismo, que no será posible contar con una edición en línea de la conferencia como una alternativa a esta situación.

Health promotion, as a strategy (a set of coordinated intersectoral actions) that aims to orient and support social change in order to improve health for all and reduce health inequalities, has been adopted in many countries. However there is not yet a structured field of research, based on a set of paradigms, approaches and methods that is recognised as health promotion research. Health promotion still needs a clear and widely adopted definition that would delineate a coherent body of disciplinary knowledge and methods.

It is timely to map and to understand the practices of health promotion research (in terms of paradigms, ethical framework, research strategies and methods) and their anchor in the ethical system of health promotion.

As a first step, we want to receive structured detailed (2 pages) outlines of potential contributions based on how specific research projects or research programs were conducted. Deadline for submitting the outlines is April 15, 2020. Click here to find all information and requirements for the outline.

The Handbook of Health Promotion Research will be published under the auspices of the UNESCO Chair and WHO Collaborating Centre “Global Health & Education” and the Canada Research Chair on Community Approaches and Health Inequalities, in partnership with the International Union for Health Promotion and Education. The editors are Didier Jourdan and Louise Potvin.


Manuel de référence pour la recherche en promotion de la santé – Appel à contributions

La promotion de la santé, définie comme stratégie (à savoir comme ensemble d'actions intersectorielles coordonnées) visant à contribuer au changement social pour améliorer la santé de tous et réduire les inégalités en matière de santé, a été adoptée dans de nombreux pays. Cependant, le champ de la recherche en promotion de la santé reste insuffisamment structuré et ne dispose pas des fondations solides d'un ensemble de paradigmes, d'approches et de méthodes définis et reconnus. Notre ambition est de contribuer à structurer le champ de la recherche en promotion de la santé.

Il est temps de publier un état des lieux et un manuel de référence pour la recherche en promotion de la santé, de cartographier et de caractériser les pratiques de recherche des personnes impliquées dans la production et le partage des connaissances en promotion de la santé.

Dans un premier temps, nous souhaitons recevoir un descriptif structuré et détaillé (2 pages) des contributions potentielles, décrivant la manière dont les projets ou programmes de recherche spécifiques ont été menés. La date limite pour la soumission des plans est le 15 avril 2020. Pour plus d'informations et pour connaître les exigences relatives aux contributions, veuillez consulter notre site (en anglais).


Manual de investigación en promoción de la salud – Llamado para enviar contribuciones

La promoción de la salud ha sido adoptada en muchos países en tanto que estrategia (conjunto coordinado de acciones intersectoriales) para orientar y apoyar un cambio social que busca mejorar la salud y reducir las inequidades en salud. Sin embargo, no existe aún un campo de investigación bien estructurado, basado en modelos, enfoques y métodos que sea reconocido como investigación en promoción de la salud.

La promoción de la salud exige todavía una definición clara que sea adoptada ampliamente y que pueda delinear un conjunto coherente de métodos y conocimientos disciplinarios.

Es hora de determinar y comprender las prácticas de la investigación en promoción de la salud (en cuanto a paradigmas, código ético, estrategias de investigación y métodos) y la forma como éstas se vinculan con el sistema ético de la promoción de la salud.

Por esto, y como primer paso, los invitamos a enviar un esbozo detallado y estructurado (2 páginas) de potenciales contribuciones sobre cómo se desarrollaron proyectos o programas de investigación específicos. La fecha límite es el 15 de abril del 2020. Puede hacer clic aquí para obtener toda la información y los requisitos relacionados con el envío (en inglés).

El Manual de Investigación en Promoción de la Salud será publicado con el auspicio de la Cátedra Unesco y el Centro Colaborador de la OMS “Salud Mundial y Educación”, así como de la Cátedra Canadiense de Investigación sobre Enfoques Comunitarios e Inequidades en Salud, en asocio con la Unión Internacional de Promoción de la Salud y Educación para la Salud. Los editores son Didier Jourdan y Louise Potvin.

 

 

 

Over the last year, IUHPE’s World Conference on Health Promotion took place in a unique setting which allowed us to reflect on the link between the health of our planet and that of its inhabitants. We also continued our advocacy efforts on the prevention of NCDs in the context of the World Health Assembly of the WHO, and the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage.
At the same time, we have continued to serve our members and to support institutions and practitioners through our Accreditation System.

RESO is the health promotion unit of UCLouvain (Université Catholique de Louvain, in Belgium). Created in 1984, the RESO is currently a part of the Institute of Health and Society (IRSS).

Its main mission is to strengthen the expertise of health promotion actors, including professionals, decision-makers and scientists, and to support decision-making for policy and interventions by sharing health promotion knowledge.

 

The RESO offers documentary and methodological support services for the development of projects in health promotion, namely through the production of knowledge sharing tools (knowledge syntheses, resources selection, etc.).

 

Moreover, the unit’s documentation center facilitates the access to information, and scientific and professional documents in health promotion.

 

The RESO also carries out documentary monitoring on key health topics for the Brussels and Walloon context and shares the latest resources grouped according to its thematical focus.

 

Facilitating access to and dissemination of scientific literature in health promotion, and enabling the appropriation of recent scientific information on current and transversal health promotion topics contribute to the strengthening of the knowledge of health promotion actors.

These two areas of activity of RESO increase the relevance and the quality of health promotion interventions, improve the health of populations and reduce social inequalities in health.

Le RESO est le service universitaire de promotion de la santé de l’UCLouvain (Université Catholique de Louvain en Belgique). Créé en 1984, le RESO est actuellement rattaché à l’Institut de recherche santé et société (IRSS). 

 
Sa principale mission est de renforcer les savoirs des intervenant·e·s de promotion de la santé, qu’ils/elles soient professionnel·le·s, décideurs/décideuses ou scientifiques, et de soutenir la prise de décision interventionnelle et politique en partageant les connaissances en promotion de la santé.

 
Le RESO offre des services de soutien d’ordre documentaire ou méthodologique pour le développement de projets en promotion de la santé. Il réalise notamment des supports de partages de connaissances (synthèses de connaissance, sélections de ressources, ...).
 


Le service dispose également d’un centre de documentation, favorisant l’accès à l’information et à la documentation scientifique et professionnelle en promotion de la santé. Le RESO réalise aussi une veille documentaire sur des thématiques de santé prioritaires dans le contexte bruxellois et wallon, mettant à disposition les dernières ressources classées par thématiques.

Faciliter l’accès et la diffusion de la littérature scientifique et professionnelle pertinente en promotion de la santé, assurer l’appropriation de l’information scientifique récente concernant des thématiques de promotion de la santé actuelles et transversales contribuent au renforcement des connaissances des intervenants du secteur de la promotion de la santé.
 
Ces deux pôles d’activités réalisés par le RESO permettent d’une part d’augmenter la pertinence et la qualité des interventions en promotion de la santé et d’autre part d’améliorer la santé des populations et de réduire les inégalités sociales de santé.

El RESO es el servicio universitario de promoción de la salud de la Universidad Católica de Lovaina (UCL), en Bélgica. Fue creado en 1984 y actualmente hace parte del Instituto de Investigaciones en Salud y Sociedad (IRSS, por sus iniciales en francés).
 
Su misión es fortalecer el conocimiento de los actores y actrices de la promoción de la salud (profesionales, responsables de la toma de decisiones y representantes de la comunidad científica) y apoyar las resoluciones políticas e intervencionistas mediante la difusión de experiencias en promoción de la salud.
 

El RESO ofrece servicios de apoyo documental o metodológico para el desarrollo de proyectos de promoción de la salud. Se encarga de realizar todo lo concerniente a la difusión del conocimiento (síntesis de experiencias, selección de recursos, etc.). 



Asimismo, el servicio dispone de un centro de documentación que facilita el acceso a la información y a la documentación científica y profesional en el campo de la promoción de la salud.

El RESO realiza además un monitoreo permanente de las publicaciones relacionadas con los asuntos de salud que son prioritarios en Bruselas y Valonia, para poner a disposición de los interesados los recursos más recientes, clasificados por temas.
 
Facilitar el acceso y la difusión de la literatura científica y profesional en promoción de la salud, y garantizar la apropiación de la información científica reciente relacionada con las temáticas actuales y transversales de la promoción de la salud, son dos factores que contribuyen a fortalecer y afianzar los conocimientos de los actores del sector de la promoción de la salud.
 
Estos dos polos de actividades realizadas por el RESO permiten, por una parte, aumentar la pertinencia y la calidad de las intervenciones en promoción de la salud, y de otro lado, mejorar la salud de las poblaciones y reducir las inequidades sociales en la salud.

After seeing its mandate extended through April 2021, the WHO Civil Society Working Group on NCDs (CS WG) has now officially entered its second phase. Re-nominated civil society leaders have been joined by new members that bring additional expertise and networks to the group, while strengthening representation from all regions.

Trevor Shilton, IUHPE Vice President for Advocacy, will continue to contribute to the CS WG, namely as a member of the committee on Advocacy and communications. Two other committees will focus on Accountability, and the Meaningful involvement of civil society and people living with and affected by NCDs. IUHPE will continue to keep our members apprised of the Group’s activities and deliverables, as well as inform you of all opportunities for engagement.

The launch of the second phase of the CS WG took place at Muscat, Oman, during the Global Meeting to Accelerate Progress on SDG target 3.4 on Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health, 9-12 December 2019. The second and final report of the WHO Independent High-level Commission on noncommunicable diseases, It’s time to walk the talk, was also presented at this event. Click here to learn more about its recommendations.

IUHPE has published its own position which proposes that it is lack of investment in the necessary health promotion and primary prevention systems that best explains the lack of progress globally on NCDs. IUHPE agrees it is time to get serious – and proposes ten system requirements for strengthening health promotion as a primary mechanism for meeting the WHO NCD Targets. The necessary investments include:

  • Political and policy requirements such as high-level political leadership of robust national action plans.

  • Enabler requirements such as sustainable financing, strong health promotion institutions, a strengthened health promotion workforce and mechanisms for cross-sector collaboration; and

  • Delivery requirements such as comprehensive health promotion plans with a focus on equity, as well as the social, environmental and commercial determinants of NCDs.  

IUHPE strongly supports the call by the WHO Independent High-level Commission on NCDS for member states to step up their focus on implementation. 

 

For the last few years, IUHPE and the United Kingdom Public Health Register (UKPHR) have worked together to provide the IUHPE-accredited global register for health promotion practitioners in the UK and to publicise the register’s availability. Unfortunately, demand has been low and therefore our organizations must reluctantly make the decision to close the UKPHR-based register, effective December 2019.

As is the case with any country where there is no IUHPE National Accreditation Organisation (NAO), health promotion practitioners based in the UK will continue to be offered a registration service by IUHPE directly, through its website.

You can read the joint statement by IUHPE and UKPHR here. We will continue to work together and support each other’s efforts to recognize and capacitate the public health and health promotion workforce.

 

The Report on "Options to foster Health Promoting Health Systems" was just published! 

Click here to read this important document.

 

This Opinion was prepared by the European Commission's Expert Panel on effective ways of investing in Health (EXPH) and adopted at its 18th plenary on 7 November 2019 after public hearing on 23 October 2019. Professor Margaret Barry, IUHPE President, is a member of this Panel and was the rapporteur for this document.

"Health promotion is an essential strategy for improving health equity and a key action underpinning the reform of health systems in Europe. Applying the principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights and the competences of the EU treaties for the promotion of wellbeing and protection of health across all EU policies, we recommend that a range of policy measures and financial mechanisms at the European level are applied to support the implementation of transformative health promotion policies and practices in EU Member States. This shift in focus from disease to health can be considered ‘a disruptive innovation’ due to the need to transform existing organisational structures, workforce, and services" (EXPH, 2019).

The Opinion makes a number of key recommendations for action on strengthening the capacity of EU countries to implement health promotion at a political, policy and service delivery level, recognising that the implementation of the SDGs in Europe present a major opportunity to bring a central focus on health promotion as a core element of delivering on sustainable development and universal health coverage.

IUHPE argues that reorienting health systems to focus more on health promotion, prevention and primary health care, as advocated in the Ottawa Charter, is the most effective and sustainable way to achieve national health goals and targets, and reduce the escalating burden of preventable diseases and mental ill-health on health care systems and treasuries. We are glad to see that the opinion of the EXPH builds on the arguments and the approach outlined in the IUHPE Position Statement, Beating NCDs equitably - Ten system requirements for health promotion and the primary prevention of NCDs (2018), and the work developed on the core competencies for health promotion, that are the basis of the IUHPE Health Promotion Accreditation System

This report is only a part of an ongoing discussion that will continue in the upcoming months with further publications, including the accompanying fact sheet, presentations and other events. IUHPE will work hard to continue to be a strong voice advocating for health promotion and to engage its members and network in these exchanges. Join IUHPE and help us promote global health and wellbeing!

 

Reading suggestion: The September editorial of Global Health Promotion, IUHPE's official journal, is entitled “Health promotion in the sustainable development goal era,” and was written by Erica Di Ruggiero, the journal’s new Editor-in-Chief. In it, she presents her vision for the future of the journal and makes a compelling call for reflection on health promotion as a field, namely in face of the challenges of implementing SDGs.

 

 

 

The detailed program for the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis: Advancing Salutogenesis towards thriving societies is available now!

 

Even if you are not presenting there are several reasons to attend this meeting, including a variety of Workshops and many opportunities to engage in dialogue. In line with participatory principles, it offers a highly interactive format with strong involvement of all participants in diverse presentations and debates on current trends in theory, research and implementation of Salutogenesis.

Early Bird registration available until February 1st, 2020.

 

The Center of Salutogenesis at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, is the host of the event, which will take place on April 14-15, 2020. The 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis is co-sponsored by the Society for Theory and Research on Salutogenesis (STARS), IUHPE, and its Working Group on Salutogenesis

 

IUHPE Working Groups make strategic contributions to the priority areas of work of the IUHPE and provide members with a unique opportunity to be involved in the development of health promotion.The IUHPE Working Group on Salutogenesis was established in 2007 to advance and promote the science of Salutogenesis within health promotion. It is an international, interdisciplinary group of researchers representing different world regions and research areas of Salutogenesis.

October - Health Literacy Month: Celebrating a Decade of Action in Health Literacy

What better way to celebrate Health Literacy Month worldwide than by acknowledging the 10th year anniversary of the IUHPE Working Group on Health Literacy? Beginning with preliminary meetings in Vancouver in 2007, the GWG-Health Literacy was officially established through a Resolution in the General Assembly in Geneva in 2010. The group has been working continuously over the past decade to promote health literacy in health promotion through research, practice and policy.

Beginning with a vision expressed in the group’s Mission Statement, the group seeks “to initiate and support action, policy and research on health literacy, acknowledging the contribution of health literacy to reducing disparities in the promotion of health and wellbeing, and sustainable development, and to the pursuit of equity within and between countries, in the global context.”

Toward this end, the group continuously reaches out to include active members from the IUHPE’s regions, and from a wide variety of professional and academic fields. We are privileged to have world-renowned health promotion experts active in the group, alongside promising students and early career professionals - all working together.

The group liaises with a rich array of partners such as the Asian Health Literacy Association, European Association of Health Literacy, HARC (US), WHO, Health Promoting Hospitals Networks, International Health Literacy Association, Bridge for Health, EUPHA and many more. The group has participated in projects such as the Diabetes Literacy Project and the Health Literacy of School Children Project (in Germany), taught in Summer Schools, formed research groups (in Alcohol Literacy, for instance), and supported a number of projects and research proposals.

This past year has been particularly productive with a number of achievements: initiating and editing a special issue on health literacy of the Global Health Promotion journal and other publications, developing and disseminating the IUHPE Position Statement on Health Literacy:  A Practical Vision for a Health Literate World (including with a Brief Report in WHO's Public health panorama),  sponsoring a pre-conference on health literacy at the IUHPE World Conference -   in addition to 3 sub-plenary sessions and dozens of oral presentations,  workshops, symposia, posters -  partnering with the GWG-Salutogenesis and GWG-Healthy Settings for mutual coordination of special sessions in the IUHPE European Region Health Promotion Conference, developing and implementing a new governance strategy and more.

 

Congratulations to all past and present members of the
IUHPE Working Group on Health Literacy!

Read the full IUHPE Statement on the Political Declaration adopted at the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage, on 23 September 2019.

The IUHPE is pleased to have this opportunity to strongly support the Political Declaration of the High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage. On behalf of our members, representing high-, middle- and low-income countries globally, we welcome the focus on universal health coverage (UHC) and the reaffirmation of health as a precondition for sustainable development. As reflected in the Declaration, health promotion is an essential component of UHC.

The IUHPE argues that reorienting health systems to focus more on health promotion, prevention and primary health care, as advocated in the Ottawa Charter, is the most effective and sustainable way to achieve national health goals and targets, and reduce the escalating burden of preventable diseases and mental ill-health on health care systems and treasuries.

Delivering on UHC and meeting the ambitious targets of the SDGs means moving beyond a focus on curative health care to also embrace health promotion and primary prevention interventions that will address the broader determinants of health and place empowered citizens at the centre of their own health and wellbeing.  

 

The IUHPE can help

IUHPE provides technical guidance and support to countries on health promotion implementation strategies that will strengthen the quality of health promotion practice. This includes: providing leadership in mobilizing IUHPE members; developing and implementing an audit tool for member states to assess their health promotion systems; conducting training in advocacy for professionals and policy-makers; supporting capacity development through the IUHPE Accreditation System; conducting and co-organising global and regional conferences on health promotion; supporting effective partnerships; and developing and translating health promotion knowledge, as well as promoting exchanges on effective action through webinars.

 

Read the full IUHPE Statement on the Political Declaration adopted at the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage, on 23 September 2019.


Since IUHPE argues that health promotion interventions should be evidence-based, in collaboration with SAGE, we have created a list of articles of the journal Global Health Promotion to contribute to the discussion. We would like to highlight two GHP editorials that touch on key issues discussed in the Political Declaration. They are available in English, French and Spanish.

Missed the deadline? Good news! To enable broader, active participation in the 6th International Conference on Salutogenesis, in Zurich, Switzerland, we extended the deadline for abstract submission to Sept 25th 2019. Learn more about this event and send your contribution now!

The conference aims for a broad exchange of scientists and experts around the world with the aim to advance theory and research on Salutogenesis.

We strongly believe that Salutogenesis is a very powerful concept – but needs to be advanced to develop its full potential. Thus, we are not only looking for completed research – but even more so for emerging ideas triggering discussions. We urge you to think about which ideas you could contribute to the conference, which issues you would like to discuss – and who else you would like to see as a presenter. Please spread this invitation to submit abstracts broadly!

The conference is offered by the International Union for Health Promotion and Education, its Global Working Group on Salutogenesis, the Society for Theory and Research on Salutogenesis (STARS), and the Center of Salutogenesis (CoS). 

 

We are happy to share with you IUHPE’s Activity Report 2018 (click to download it).

It was a very important year for IUHPE as the first year of the International Secretariat in Canada, but also due to the array of activities taking place across the world and in different areas of IUHPE’s work. They include two regional conferences, three position statements, a special issue of GHP, strong advocacy work and the launch of two National Accreditation Organisations.

All these achievements resulted from joint efforts with our members and partners, regionally and globally.


Nous sommes heureux de vous communiquer le rapport d'activité de l'UIPES pour l'année 2018 (cliquez ici pour le télécharger).

Cette année a été très importante pour l'UIPES, d'une part parce que c'était la première année de son secrétariat international au Canada, mais aussi du fait de la diversité des activités qui ont été menées à travers le monde et dans différents domaines du travail de l'UIPES. Celles-ci ont inclus deux conférences régionales, trois documents de position, un numéro spécial de GHP, un vigoureux travail de plaidoyer, et le lancement de deux organismes nationaux de certification.

Tous ces accomplissements sont le fruit d'efforts partagés avec nos membres et nos partenaires, à l'échelle régionale et mondiale. 


Nos alegra enormemente compartir con ustedes el Informe de Actividad UIPES 2018 (haga clic para descargarlo).

Ha sido un año muy importante para la UIPES, por ser el primero en que el Secretariado Internacional se ha ubicado en Canadá, pero también por el despliegue de actividades que hemos realizado en todo el mundo y en las diversas áreas que constituyen el trabajo de la UIPES. Entre estas actividades hay que destacar dos conferencias regionales, tres declaraciones de posicionamiento, un número especial de GHP, una intensa labor de sensibilización y defensa de nuestros postulados y la inauguración de dos Organizaciones Nacionales de Acreditación.

Todos estos logros son el resultado de los esfuerzos realizados junto con nuestros miembros y socios, a escala regional y mundial.

 

IUHPE logo

The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) applauds the direction taken by the Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in highlighting that an increased focus on health (and health promotion) has many co-benefits beyond health. The IUHPE calls for this positive intent to be backed by policy and investment in health promotion systems. 

Critically, the benefits of healthy communities and populations extend to a healthy economy and higher productivity. However, the co-benefits of investing in health and wellbeing also extend to improvements in sustainability and environmental quality, education and social policy, all of which are conducive to equitable societies.

“The wellbeing of people and their communities is a prerequisite to sustainable societies and should be central to Government policy. This is also true in reverse – a strong economy and a sustainable environment support a health promoting future,” stated Adj Prof Trevor Shilton, IUHPE Vice President for Advocacy.

But how is this achieved? The IUHPE has outlined a framework for investing in sustainable health promotion systems. Adj Prof Shilton says “Making meaningful progress towards achieving health targets is dependent on strong political leadership, and this would result in sustainable financing of strong health promotion institutions, a strengthened health promotion workforce and comprehensive programs.”   

It is only through investment in promoting health and wellbeing that the major health issues that are crippling economies and destroying lives – such as chronic conditions and air pollution – can be sustainably prevented.

La Voluntary Health Association of India (VHAI) est une société enregistrée sans but lucratif, créée en 1970. Il s’agit d’une fédération de 24 Voluntary Health Associations à l’échelon des Etats qui regroupe plus de 4500 institutions de santé et de développement à travers le pays. Nous sommes l’un des plus grands réseaux de santé et de développement au monde.

VHAI préconise des politiques centrées sur les personnes pour une planification dynamique de la santé et la gestion des programmes en Inde. Nous lançons et soutenons des programmes innovants de santé et de développement au niveau local avec la participation active de la population. VHAI s’efforce de bâtir un solide mouvement de la santé dans le pays pour un système de santé rentable, préventif, de promotion et de réadaptation. Nous œuvrons en faveur d’un secteur de la santé publique adapté aux besoins et d’un secteur privé responsable avec un service de qualité et l’obligation de rendre des comptes.

VHAI promeut la dimension sanitaire des droits de l’homme et du développement. Les bénéficiaires des programmes de VHAI sont des professionnels de la santé, des chercheurs, des militants sociaux, des fonctionnaires, du personnel des médias et, bien sûr, des collectivités locales.

VHAI travaille en étroite collaboration avec des partenaires locaux, gouvernementaux et internationaux sur la lutte contre le tabagisme, la tuberculose, les maladies à transmission vectorielle, le VIH/SIDA, la santé maternelle, la santé procréative, infantile et des adolescents. Dans le domaine de la lutte antitabac, où nous avons travaillé de façon systématique, nous avons eu un impact important qui nous a valu une reconnaissance nationale et mondiale, y compris de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé. VHAI met particulièrement l’accent sur les initiatives locales en matière de déterminants sociaux dans des domaines laissés-pour-compte. Nous accordons une attention particulière aux efforts de secours et de réhabilitation après des catastrophes naturelles.

Compte tenu de l’énorme défi que posent les maladies non transmissibles, nous réorientons nos énergies et nos efforts vers cet élément particulièrement difficile de la santé publique. Afin de réaliser la vision d’une Inde en santé, la promotion de la santé devrait être considérée comme une composante importante et compatible avec l’ensemble des soins de santé primaires.

L’approche de VHAI en Promotion de la Santé

I. Sensibilisation du grand public aux MNT et à la promotion de la santé
II. Promotion de la santé dans les écoles et les collèges
III. Prise en compte des problèmes liés aux accidents de la circulation et aux séquelles de ces accidents
IV. Plaidoyer pour lutter contre le problème croissant des produits néfastes pour la santé
V. Utilisation optimale du potentiel des systèmes traditionnels de médecine pour renforcer des systèmes de médecine intégrés
VI. Promotion du sport et de la vie active
VII. Stratégies de communication pour les MNT et la promotion de la santé
VIII. Utilisation optimale des ressources humaines de la santé pour promouvoir la santé et le bien-être de la population
IX. Promotion de la santé en milieu de travail

Pour mener à bien ses efforts, VHAI a énormément bénéficié des expériences de l’UIPES à l’échelle mondiale par l’intermédiaire de notre association en tant que membre actif du Conseil d’Administration. VHAI, l’UIPES et l’Union européenne ont collaboré pour accueillir la table ronde des leaders de la promotion de la santé de l’Europe et de l’Inde à Paris et à Delhi en 2005. VHAI a travaillé en étroite collaboration avec l’UIPES pour publier son ouvrage  collaboratif dans les publications de Springer sur la santé publique.

Voluntary Health Association of India (VHAI) es una entidad oficial sin finalidad de lucro fundada en el año 1970. Constituye una federación de más de 24 asociaciones estatales de voluntarios para la salud, que congrega a más de 4.500 instituciones de salud y desarrollo de todo el país. Somos una de las redes de salud y desarrollo más grandes del mundo.

VHAI defiende la necesidad de aplicar políticas centradas en las personas para una planificación y una gestión dinámicas de la salud y de los programas en la India.  Iniciamos y apoyamos programas innovadores de salud y desarrollo en las comunidades de base con la participación activa de las personas. VHAI lucha por generar un poderoso movimiento en el país para lograr un sistema de atención de salud rentable, preventivo, promotor y rehabilitador. Aspiramos a lograr un sector público con capacidad de respuesta y un sector privado responsable con transparencia y calidad en el servicio.

VHAI promueve la dimensión de los derechos humanos y el desarrollo en el ámbito de la salud. Entre los beneficiarios de los programas de VHAI se incluyen profesionales sanitarios, investigadores, activistas sociales, empleados gubernamentales, personal de los medios de comunicación y, por supuesto, las comunidades en general.

VHAI trabaja en estrecha colaboración con los gobiernos locales y estatales y con socios internacionales en cuestiones como el control del tabaquismo, la tuberculosis, las enfermedades transmitidas por vectores, el VIH/SIDA, la salud maternal, reproductiva, infantil y adolescente. En los lugares en los que hemos trabajado sistemáticamente en el control del tabaquismo, hemos tenido un impacto significativo, con lo que hemos ganado reconocimiento nacional y mundial, incluido el de la Organización Mundial de la Salud. VHAI se centra especialmente en iniciativas que abordan los determinantes sociales de la salud en las comunidades de base de áreas remotas. Prestamos especial atención a la ayuda de emergencia y a la rehabilitación después de los desastres naturales.

Teniendo en cuenta el enorme problema que plantean las enfermedades no transmisibles, estamos reenfocando nuestras energías y esfuerzos hacia este aspecto especialmente complicado de la salud pública. Para hacer realidad la visión de una India Saludable, la promoción de la salud debería considerarse como un elemento constante y fundamental de todo el paquete de atención primaria de salud.

Enfoque de VHAI a la promoción de la salud

I.            Concienciar a la población sobre las ENTs y la promoción de la salud
II.           Promoción de la salud en escuelas y colegios
III.          Abordar la cuestión de los accidentes de tráfico/lesiones
IV.         Hacer campañas para combatir el creciente problema de los productos perjudiciales para la salud
V.           Optimizar la utilización del potencial de los sistemas de medicina tradicionales y fortalecer los sistemas de medicina integrativa
VI.         Promover el deporte y estilos de vida activos
VII.        Estrategias de comunicación para las ENTs y la promoción de la salud
VIII.       Utilización óptima del personal sanitario para promover la salud y el bienestar de las personas
IX.          Promoción de la salud en entornos laborales

La labor de VHAI se ha beneficiado enormemente de las experiencias mundiales de la UIPES gracias a que es miembro de esta asociación y, concretamente, de su Junta de Gobierno. VHAI, la UIPES y la Unión Europea colaboraron en la organización de la mesa redonda de líderes de Promoción de la Salud en Europa e India en París & Delhi en 2005. VHAI ha colaborado estrechamente con la UIPES para publicar nuestros trabajos de colaboración sobre Salud Pública en la editorial Springer.

The International Union for Health Promotion and Education remains committed to the fight for the prevention and control of Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and continues to be represented at World Health Organisation key meetings.

Following the UN High-level Meeting on NCDs held on September 2018, the WHO Civil Society Working Group on NCDs has been reformed and its mandate has been extended to engage the NCD agenda with the High-level meeting on Universal Health Coverage. This meeting will take place on 23 September 2019 during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) high-level week. Trevor Shilton, IUHPE Vice president for Advocacy, has been reappointed to this group.

IUHPE Executive Director, Liane Comeau (in the photo with José Luis Castro, IUHPE VP for Finance), is attending the World Health Assembly, in Geneva, Switzerland, 20-28 May 2019, and presented a statement regarding point 11.8 of the Agenda: Follow-up to the high-level meetings of the United Nations General Assembly on health related issues - Prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases.

You can read it in full here. Statements by non-State actors in official relations with WHO are published here.

Liane Comeau also had the opportunity participate on behalf of Trevor Shilton in the second meeting of the WHO Civil Society Working Group to continue momentum from the last year's High-level meeting and mobilize for the High-level meeting on Universal Health Coverage. 

For more information on IUHPE's strategy to tackle NCDs, we invite you to read our position statement: “Beating NCDs equitably – ten system requirements for health promotion and the primary prevention of NCDs.” IUHPE contends the failure to invest in, establish or strengthen the fundamental system supports for primary prevention and health promotion are the primary impediments to sustained implementation of NCD prevention and control. 

Reducing the burden of NCDs is only possible if governments invest in health promotion systems and services. These include the sustainable financing of strong health promotion institutions, a capable health promotion workforce and proven health promotion initiatives.

 

Global Health Promotion is pleased to welcome Dr. Erica Marie-Christine Di Ruggiero as new Editor-in-Chief! She will start her term next April to continue the high-quality work of Dr. Suzanne Jackson, who has promoted excellence in Global Health Promotion for the past 9 years.

IUHPE President, Margaret Barry, and IUHPE Executive Board

I am very honoured to have been elected as President of IUHPE and I look forward to taking on this exciting and important position. IUHPE serves a critical role as the global voice of health promotion. During my term of office I will work with all IUHPE members in strengthening this voice and working to advance the implementation of evidence-based health promotion policy and practice based on the principles of participation, equity and social justice. This can be achieved through effective advocacy, leadership, partnership working, capacity development and the generation and translation of research and knowledge for effective health promotion action.

The position of health promotion globally needs to be strengthened to meet existing and future health challenges, including addressing health inequities, tackling NCDs, promoting population mental health, planetary health and sustainable development. Health promotion actions are essential to achieving the ambitious targets of the Social Development Goals (UN, 2015) and the commitments of the Shanghai Declaration (WHO, 2106), with renewed efforts to address the socio-ecological determinants of health and to position health promotion within the context of universal health coverage and sustainable health systems. Through working in partnership with leading global agencies, IUHPE is uniquely positioned to advance these objectives. 

I invite health promoters across all regions to join with IUHPE and become part of our global network for exchanging knowledge, ideas and innovative practice to help to achieve this vision.

I look forward to working with the new Executive Board, the Secretariat, IUHPE members and partners globally over the next two years in advancing the vision and objectives of the organisation and strengthening its strategic actions globally.

Je suis très honorée d’avoir été élue Présidente de l’UIPES et je me réjouis à la perspective d’occuper ce poste important et passionnant. Notre Organisation joue un rôle essentiel en étant la voix de la promotion de la santé, à l’échelle mondiale. Au cours de mon mandat, je souhaite travailler avec tous les membres de l’UIPES pour renforcer cette voix et pour faire progresser la mise en œuvre de politiques et de pratiques de promotion de la santé fondées sur des données probantes et sur les principes de participation, d’équité et de justice sociale. Nous y parviendrons en plaidant pour des actions efficaces en promotion de la santé, au travers de notre leadership, en travaillant en partenariat, en renforçant les capacités de ceux qui œuvrent dans notre champ et en développant et transférant les connaissances issues de la recherche et de la pratique.

La position de la promotion de la santé à l’échelle mondiale doit être renforcée pour relever les défis actuels et futurs en matière de santé, y compris la lutte contre les inégalités en santé, la lutte contre les MNT, la promotion de la santé mentale de la population, la santé planétaire et le développement durable. Les actions de promotion de la santé sont essentielles pour atteindre les objectifs ambitieux des Objectifs de développement social (ONU, 2015) et les engagements de la Déclaration de Shanghai (OMS, 2106), avec des efforts renouvelés pour aborder les déterminants écologiques de la santé et positionner la promotion de la santé dans le contexte d’une couverture sanitaire universelle et de systèmes de santé durables. En travaillant en partenariat avec les principaux organismes mondiaux, l’UIPES est particulièrement bien placée pour faire progresser ces objectifs.

J’invite les promoteurs de la santé de toutes les régions à se joindre à l’UIPES et à faire partie de notre réseau mondial d’échange de connaissances, d’idées et de pratiques novatrices pour aider à réaliser cette vision.

Je me réjouis à l’idée de travailler avec le nouveau Conseil Exécutif, le Secrétariat, les membres de l’UIPES et ses partenaires à l’échelle mondiale au cours des deux prochaines années pour faire progresser la vision et les objectifs de l’organisation et renforcer ses actions stratégiques à l’échelle mondiale.

Es para mí un gran honor haber sido elegido Presidente de la UIPES y estoy deseando tomar posesión de este cargo tan estimulante y trascendental. La UIPES desempeña un papel decisivo en tanto que portavoz de la promoción de la salud a escala mundial. Durante mi mandato, trabajaré con todos los miembros de la UIPES para fortalecer esta voz y mejorar la implementación de políticas y prácticas de promoción de la salud basadas en la evidencia y fundamentadas en los principios de participación, equidad y justicia social. Ello podrá lograrse a través de una defensa pública de nuestros postulados que sea eficaz, un buen liderazgo, un trabajo de colaboración y de capacitación, generando investigación y conocimiento y traduciéndolo de manera que permita una acción de promoción de la salud eficaz.

Es necesario fortalecer la posición de la promoción de la salud a escala mundial para poder dar respuesta a los retos actuales y futuros que plantea la salud, entre ellos, abordar las desigualdades de salud existentes, poner freno a las ENTs, promover la salud mental de la población, la salud del planeta y el desarrollo sostenible. Las acciones de promoción de la salud son imprescindibles para lograr las ambiciosas metas de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Social (ONU, 2015) y los compromisos de la Declaración de Shanghái (OMS, 2016), que contemplan renovados esfuerzos para abordar los determinantes socio-ecológicos de la salud y posicionar a la promoción de la salud en el contexto de la cobertura sanitaria universal y los sistemas de salud sostenibles. Al trabajar en colaboración con los principales organismos mundiales, la UIPES se halla en una posición única para avanzar hacia la consecución de estos objetivos.

Invito a los promotores de salud de todas las regiones del mundo a unirse a la UIPES y entrar a formar parte de nuestra red mundial de intercambio de conocimiento, ideas y prácticas innovadores para contribuir a materializar esta visión.

Estoy deseando trabajar con la nueva Junta Ejecutiva, el Secretariado, los miembros y socios de la UIPES en todo el mundo durante los próximos dos años para lograr la visión y los objetivos de la organización y fortalecer sus acciones estratégicas en todo el mundo.
