The process of empowering people to exert more control over and make improvements to their health is known as health promotion. It shifts away from an emphasis on personal behavior and toward a variety of societal and environmental interventions.

An overview of Health Promotion History

Ottawa hosted the first International Conference on Health Promotion in 1986, largely in response to the rising hopes for a global public health movement. In order to accomplish “Health For All” by the year 2000 and beyond, it spurred a number of efforts by international organisations, national governments, and local communities. The Ottawa Charter highlighted three primary tactics for health promotion: advocate (to increase the variables that promote health), facilitate (to allow all individuals to attain health equity), and mediate (through collaboration across all sectors).

The global principles and action areas for health promotion have since been defined. The 9th global conference (Shanghai 2016), with the theme “Promoting health in the Sustainable Development Goals: Health for all and health for all,” recently brought attention to the crucial connections between promoting health and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Shanghai Declaration offers a framework through which governments can make use of the transformative potential of health promotion while also advocating for strong political initiatives to quicken national action on the SDGs.
