Order code: SP 557

Enabling individuals and communities to improve and maintain their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being is at the heart of health promotion. The Pan American Health Organization strives to foster this proactive approach by presenting, under one cover an inspiring selection of the most significant papers on the subject. These ground-breaking studies have made a lasting impact on the traditional approach to disease and attest to the belief that public health requires a holistic point of view, rather than one limited to disease prevention and control.

The papers that comprise the anthology were selected to meet two objectives: to disseminate a wide range of information and to illustrate the growth and development of health promotion as a world-wide strategy. More than 50 public health experts from four continents contributed to the anthology. Their papers illustrate the diverse nature of health promotion topics and are presented in five "Parts":

  • Developing a Framework
  • Building Healthy Public Policy
  • Strengthening Community Action
  • Developing Personal Health Skills
  • Health Promotion for Specific Groups.
Key documents in the health promotion movement in the Americas—the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, Health Promotion and Equity (the Declaration of Bogotá), and the Caribbean Charter for Health Promotion—supplement the text. A glossary of health promotion terms and concepts completes the collection.

Health Promotion: An Anthology is designed to bolster the efforts of public health professionals as they strive to improve health and well being around the world; this collection will also lend invaluable insight to the general public.
