The Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute, the Alliance for Health Promotion in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO)
9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Auditorium Ivan Pictet, Maison de la paix
This year’s 8th Global Forum on Health Promotion aims to create awareness about the impact different Health Promotion strategies can have in shaping health policies to effectively prevent and control non-communicable diseases (NCDs). What is the role of health promotion in prevention and control of NCDs? How can health promotion accelerate the implementation of high-level declarations to local level action and impact?
A high-level panel will take place in the morning and will be followed by technical workshops in topics including ‘Health Promotion in Communities’, ‘NCDs and Health Literacy’, and ‘Evidence-Based Health Promotion Strategies to Fight NCDs’. The Forum is organised jointly with the Alliance for Health Promotion and in collaboration with the World Health Organization.
