About the Journal

Health Promotion International responds to the move for a new public health throughout the world and supports the development of action outlined in the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion. It is the official journal of the IUHPE, and is published in association with the WHO.

Health Promotion International contains refereed original articles, reviews, and debate articles on major themes and innovations from various sectors including education, health services, employment, government, the media, industry, environmental agencies, and community networks. The journal provides a unique focal point for articles of high quality that describe not only theories and concepts, research projects and policy formulation, but also planned and spontaneous activities, organizational change, social and environmental development.

The articles contained in this journal reflect the views of the authors, and do not necessarily coincide with those of the Editor, Editorial Board, Oxford University Press or the organization to which the authors are affiliated. Adaptation and use of the Health Promotion International logo for the cover design kindly granted by the World Health Organization.
