Special Journal Issue on Health Promotion

Journal Critical Public Health Focuses Special Issue on Health Promotion

The Special Issue “Health promotion: still going strong?” (Volume 18, Issue 4 2008)  has taken the opportunity of the international attention focused on the Ottawa Charter as it ‘comes of age’ to publish a special issue on health promotion. The Ottawa Charter of 1986 is generally taken to encapsulate the meaning and associated actions of promoting health. It has provided an accepted philosophy and set of values for those working in the field but has been largely ignored by decision makers and does not figure strongly in policy rhetoric in most countries. In this issue Don Nutbeam, one of its original authors, reflects on its relevance today to which several members of the CPH editorial board have responded.  To view this issue, visit: http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/title~content=g905688222~db=all
