Promoting Health and Equity

The Municipal Health Secretariat of Curitiba, the International Union for Health Promotion and Education and their partners are looking forward to hosting this important global public health and health promotion event. The 22nd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion will take place in Curitiba, Brazil. The aim is to create a global forum where researchers, practitioners and policy makers concerned by the promotion of health and equity will share and discuss new knowledge, innovations in practice and policy and cutting edge experience in Promoting Health and Equity.

Conference subthemes:

– Ethical and cultural imperatives in interventions that promote health and equity
– Urban change to make differences locally, paying attention to emerging voices
– Health in all policy and intersectoral action: innovations in theory, evaluation and research
– Pathways to achieve sustainable and healthy human development on a global scale
– Creating shared research questions to bridge the research/practice gap

The IUHPE has existed for over sixty years and remains a relevant and resilient organisation. It is a global membership-based organisation and as such maintains its professional independence whilst still working in close collaboration with UN agencies, other major intergovernmental institutions, non-governmental organisations, networks, national agencies, academic institutions and a broad range of practitioners in the field.

The purpose of the IUHPE is to influence and facilitate the development of health promotion knowledge, strategies and projects, and it does so through evidence-informed advocacy work.

It aims to provide an opportunity to build an international network that encourages the free exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences, as well as facilitating the development of relevant collaborative projects at global, regional and local levels.

The IUHPE’s triennial World Conferences on Health Promotion 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.

The 22nd IUHPE World Conference in Curitiba, Brazil, will further the core business of IUHPE in developing and disseminating evidence and learning to advance the field of health promotion and in keeping health promotion on the policy agenda. It is a key opportunity for the Latin American health promotion and public health communities to showcase their research and developments with other stakeholders: researchers, practitioners, academics, institutions and governments worldwide. Finally, the conference generates new members and revenue for the IUHPE, and strengthens its global network.
