23rd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion


23rd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion

The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) World Conferences are renowned events bringing together leading professionals in all corners of the world to take stock of the present state of knowledge and experiences, bring forward future challenges and shape the agenda to advance developments in health promotion.

Every three years, the IUHPE Conference defines the “state of the art” in health promotion practice, research, and theory. For the past 30 years, inspired by the Ottawa Charter, health promotion has developed a comprehensive, relevant knowledge base and successful strategies to address a broad range of determinants of health.

The 23rd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion invites health promoters of all horizons (researchers, practitioners and decision makers) and their partners from all relevant sectors to join us in Rotorua, and embrace the planetary health agenda and further explore how health promotion can contribute to improving the health and wellbeing of the people of the world and reducing health inequalities.

The Global Scientific Committee invites you to submit an abstract for presentation at the 23rd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion held in Rotorua, New Zealand from 7th to 11th April 2019.

All abstract submitters, including individual contributors, are encouraged to interact and collaborate with other presenters and participants wherever possible. Participatory, collaborative and non-traditional session formats will be given priority in the selection process.
