The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) has issued calls for papers to be submitted to its official publication, Global Health Promotion, in the following three areas:
- Calls in relation to sustainable development & health; equitable & sustainable health development; and participatory governance, to engage professionals in a reflection process on the linkages between health promotion and sustainable development, in preparation for the upcoming 20th World Conference on Health Promotion in July 2010 (www.iuhpeconference.net)
- Papers in English or French that relate to the implementation of health promotion programmes in Africa, as part of a Supplement edition on Health Promotion Strategies and Non-communicable Diseases Control in Africa (call opened jointly with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
- Case studies (in any of the three IUHPE official languages), which reflect and demonstrate how research evidence derived from epidemiological studies, evaluation research and/or research synthesis and meta-analysis is used and translated to address health challenges locally. These will be used to complement the publication of a second volume of the monograph “Global Perspectives on Health Promotion Effectiveness”.
