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 on Health Promotion is hosted and co-organized by the Government of Prince Edward Island in partnership with the Alliance for Health Promotion, The Quaich Inc. (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) and Groupe entreprises en santé (Montreal, Québec).
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.
