Two days remain to take advantage of early bird rates for the 6th Global Forum on Health Promotion in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on October 16-17, 2016.
The Global Forum on Health Promotion is an initiative of Geneva’s Alliance for Health Promotion, an NGO in official relations with the World Health Organization. Five previous Global Forums have been held in Geneva since 2011. This year marks the first time the event has been held outside of Europe, and the occasion coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion. The 6th Global Forum is organized by the Alliance in collaboration with the PEI Department of Health & Wellness, The Quaich Inc. (PEI) and the Groupe entreprises en santé (QC).
Central to the 6th Global Forum’s programming are the five principles of the Ottawa Charter, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The 6th Global Forum will focus on how health promotion activities can support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals over the next 14 years, revealing how communities and organizations around the world are creating change for local, national and global impact.
Preliminary program highlights include keynote speaker Zsuzsanna Jakab from WHO Europe, a panel on the New Leadership in Health Promotion, and a roundtable on Governance for Health moderated by Mihály Kökény, MD., PhD., Former Minister for Health, Hungary.
Early bird deadline closes on Thursday, June 30th.
