Academic and Research

The IUHPE's diverse membership includes a significant contingent of health promotion researchers who are dedicated to ensuring the values of health promotion research are promoted and that this research contributes to a growing evidence base to support policy and practice. The wide range of IUHPE members who work in academic settings are dedicated to providing support to the IUHPE's scientific affairs portfolio via student thesis research, joint research and exchange of staff and/or students. The establishment of a more formal Academic Networks is currently being explored in order to crystallize around a health promotion research agenda that would be more strategically connected to supporting the organisation's scientific agenda and advocating for improving resources for health promotion research around the world.
