For the first time in Nepal, a health promotion conference is jointly organized by the Government of Nepal, I/NGOs and academia. It aims to move forward health promotion based on national and international evidences. This will promote the health of Nepalese people.
Health promotion has number of unique features, which include:
Though health promotion is a globally recognised approach, it is only an emerging agenda for Nepal. There has been little research specifically focused on the health-promotion design and research gap in Nepal. Research has to produce knowledge about effectiveness of interventions in terms of individual behavioural change, but also about the importance of the principles of health promotion and its programmatic implementation. It is also necessary to involve stakeholders and to obtain the support of politicians and health-care decision makers.
Health promotion: strategies in the 21st century.
Theme 1: Scope of health promotion in low income countries
Theme 2: Approaches of health promotion
Theme 3: Health promotion in different setting and problems
Theme 4: Health promotion research, policy and practice
We are looking forward to inviting a number of eminent speakers representing academia, Government, International Non-governmental and Non-Government Organisations and health promotion professionals actively engaged in delivering programmes.
