Extract from the foreword

“Since the arrival of the new millennium, the field of health promotion has added many emerging areas related to health to its field of interest and action.

Many of these areas were, of course, anticipated in the Ottawa Charter on Health Promotion; nonetheless there has been an explosion of interest in three critical areas in recent years, namely on the social determinants of health, governance, and Health in All Policies, and more specifically “the translation of Health in All Policies from a policy principle into a policy practice”. Now we have a new and significant book that addresses these three areas in a most exciting way.

The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) acknowledges that many of the solutions to the most pressing health issues reside outside the health sector. It is therefore imperative to facilitate governance practices that enable improved work across sectors in government, the nongovernment sector, academic institutions and the private sector, at all territorial levels.”
