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.
