Day 2

What works in health promotion practice and research?

– Bending the curve of rising NCDs


The WHO and other UN organizations are eagerly identifying innovative ways to tackle challenges related to the rising prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This gives further impetus to health promotion and increasing the focus on prevention. The most prominent of these global policy movements include the 2025 Non-Communicable Disease Goals and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Goals. 

 

During Day 2 of the Conference, we explore the potential of three promising health promotion approaches and synergies among them: salutogenesis, health literacy and settings. After a plenary presentation, the audience is invited to join one of three symposia to become familiar with the latest research, practice and evidence in these three complementary approaches. After lunch, an interactive exhibition, open to all attendees, will feature the latest developments in the three approaches. A panel discussion and debate will follow, involving specialists from each approach, as well as representatives from EUPHA and IUHPE.
