Health promotion

Illustration 1 en

Are you planning a health promotion project? The guiding principles of health promotion require:

  • a focus on health and resources rather than on diseases and deficits (salutogenesis and empowerment)
  • reduction of inequalities in health (health equity)
  • planning and support of projects with target groups rather than for them (participation)
  • creation of environments that are more supportive to health (setting approach)

Taking these principles into account is not simple in practice, but improves the potential for lasting effects.
