Événements (FR/EN) 22nd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion in Curitiba, Brazil
Started in 1951 in Paris, the World Conference on Health Promotion promoted by the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), is configured as the premier event for professionals and researchers interested in the subject and have been hosted in different regions around the world. However, since that time, only one was hosted in South America, in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1969. The IUHPE is the only worldwide independent professional association, composed of individuals and organizations committed to improving the health and well-being of people through education, community action and development of healthy public policy. For this reason, the IUHPE has organized World Conferences on Health Promotion for over half a century. In each country where the conference is hosted, the IUHPE partners with one or more scientifically renowned institutions who act as local executors. Member(s) from the IUHPE Executive Board or a National Public Health or Health Promotion Agency representing a certain country can place bids proposing that country to host the triennial World Conference.
