An Alliance committed to health promotion

The Alliance for Health Promotion (A4HP), established in 1997 at the 4th WHO Global Conference on Health Promotion in Jakarta, is an International NGO registered with the State of Geneva, Switzerland.

The Alliance is comprised of a network of NGOs from different sectors who share a dedication to health promotion. A4HP is an NGO in Official Relations with the WHO and holds Consultative Status with the United Nations ECOSOC. A4HP uses its global network to reach out to local communities with health knowledge and resources.

What is Health Promotion?

When thinking about health, medicine and doctors are the first thing that come to mind. In essence health is a much broader and inclusive subject with many different aspects to it and one of its key areas is Health Promotion.

We consider Health Promotion as the means to support individuals to take responsibility for their own health and to work for an environment in which they can be successful.

In 1986, the Ottawa charter for health promotion identified five action areas for Health Promotion.

  • Build Healthy Public Policies
  • Create Supportive Environments
  • Strengthen Community Action
  • Develop Personal skills
  • Reorient Health Services

30 years later, the Ottawa charter continues to provide a solid foundation upon which to build.

Health Promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over and to improve their health
