In the United States of America, the Federal Communications Commission's repeal of the popular Open Internet Order (a.k.a 'net neutrality') has yielded pointed criticism from many different sectors, but it has yet to be examined for its potential effect on the public's health. In this commentary, we focus on the health implications of this policy change, considering expert opinion on the subject, past history, and global perspectives. We argue that the repeal of net neutrality has the potential to compromise health education and promotion efforts by widening the 'digital divide', thereby impairing health literacy and exacerbating health inequities...

Health literacy is a driver of community empowerment and a key determinant of health and equity. The World Health Organisation has established a strong global mandate for addressing health literacy through public policy action, by positioning it as one of three key pillars for achieving sustainable development and health equity in the Shanghai Declaration on Health Promotion. Policy document analysis is a useful way of determining the strengths and limitations of past and current policies, as well as the likely success of their implementation and impact on health outcomes...

One-fourth of the adult population of Colombia is estimated to have hypertension. However, there has been relatively little attention to participatory approaches that address the social determinants of hypertension at the local level in Colombia. Early stages of a coalition for addressing hypertension in Quibdó (Colombia) included a stakeholder analysis and engagement of local organizations. This was followed by defining mutual goals, agreement of rules for decision making, and refining a shared vision. Based on a unified understanding of factors influencing hypertension risk, 12 organizations joined the local coalition...

The Amajuba Child Health and Wellbeing Research Project measured the impact of orphaning due to HIV/AIDS on South African households between 2004 and 2007. Community engagement was a central component of the project and extended through 2010. We describe researcher engagement with the community to recruit participants, build local buy-in, stimulate interest in study findings, and promote integration of government social welfare services for families and children affected by HIV/AIDS. This narrative documents the experience of researchers, drawing also on project reports, public documents, and published articles, with the objective of documenting lessons learned in this collaboration between researchers from two universities and a community in South Africa during a period that spanned seven years...

The aim of this study was to analyse and test a theoretical generic health promotion capacity-building framework with empirical data on primary health care. The framework consists of seven dimensions: commitment, management, monitoring and needs assessment, resources, common practices, participation and other core functions. The data were collected in 2014 from all the health centres in Finland, of which 156 (99%) submitted their data. The data were scored by the quality of activities on a scale from 0 to 100, where 100 stands for desirable quality...

BACKGROUND: The increasing prevalence of childhood overweight/obesity caused by an unhealthy diet, insufficient physical activity (PA) and high levels of sedentary behaviour (SB) is a prominent public health concern. Parenting practices may contribute to healthy behaviour change in children, but well-researched examples are limited. The aim of this study is to describe the systematic development of an intervention for parents to prevent childhood overweight/obesity through the improvement of parenting practices...

Promoting the health of women requires an understanding of the full range of factors shaping their health, including globalization. Focusing on South Asia, I outline some of the critical global women's health issues that warrant further attention by health promotion researchers. I discuss the inadequacy of international approaches for improving the health of South Asian women, occupational health hazards associated with global industries targeting women, new forms of gender based violence, gendered ethical challenges arising as global and local forces collide and the rise of transnational feminist networks that can be harnessed for advancing women's health across the region...

There is a growing movement related to self-tracking in the quest for better health. Why do so many people like to use 'intelligent tools' like shiny sensors or mobile apps to keep an eye on every move? Do they really help us drive sustained healthy behavioral changes? Despite technological advances and product promises, we must remember that technology alone does not facilitate change to optimize health benefits. The purpose of the commentary is to pose the question: How 'health literate' do we have to be to reap the actionable health benefits of self-tracking? Research has revealed the prevalence of limited health literacy across the globe...

Inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene are responsible for approximately 800,000 deaths per year in low- and middle-income countries. We evaluated the benefits of a behavior change communication method to motivate water treatment practices in urban low income communities in Dhaka, Bangladesh. To motivate people to chlorinate their water we used a device called the 'Disgust Box'. This box provides a vivid demonstration of how piped water is contaminated with feces. Most of the respondents were able to recall the Disgust Box demonstration at both 4-month and 1-year follow-up qualitative assessments...

Over the past three decades there has been a surge in the prevalence of overweight and obesity worldwide in both adults and children. To date few studies have examined obesity in India and most have only looked at prevalence estimates. While studies in Western countries have identified parent weight status as a predictor of child weight status, there have been no studies examining this association in India. This study examined the relationship between parent weight status and child weight status using an internationally representative growth reference for children and Asian-specific action points for adults...

BACKGROUND: Currently, health literacy (HL) worldwide is measured primarily among adults from a medical perspective. A children's HL test from a health promotion perspective is needed. This study develops the Taiwan Children's Health Literacy Test (TCHL) targeted at Taiwanese sixth-graders. METHODS: HL indicators were identified through interviews of sixth-grade teachers, primary caregivers, and sixth-graders. They were used to develop a 25-item online test, which was finalized after pretesting and administered to a stratified random sample of 671 students across 29 sixth-grade classes...

This article explores the potential for health promotion capacity building across boundaries in a place-based health promotion learning network generated as part of a recent Australian Research Council-funded project in Queensland, Australia. We emphasise in particular the potential of creating new 'at the boundary' spaces of knowing that encourage and enable health promotion workers to work in interdisciplinary and intersectoral ways. The article discusses the way that diverse health promotion workers from different disciplines and government and non-government organisations came together to learn 'how to do' in new or re-invigorated ways...

Partnerships between sectors can achieve better outcomes than can be achieved by individual partners working alone. Trust is necessary for partnerships to function effectively. Mistrust makes partnership working difficult, if not impossible. There has been little research into partnership functioning factors that influence trust and mistrust. This study aimed to identify these factors in health promotion partnerships. Data were collected from 337 partners in 40 health promotion partnerships using a postal survey...

Immigrants to Canada are less likely to be physically active compared with non-immigrants, and the interrelations between personal and environmental factors that influence physical activity for immigrants are largely unexplored. The goal of this qualitative descriptive study was to understand how the experience of being new to Canada impacts opportunities and participation in physical activity. Two focus group interviews with immigrants to Canada were conducted. The first group ( n=7) included multicultural health brokers...

En Afrique, une part importante de la population est encore confrontée à plusieurs barrières pour accéder aux soins. Les mutuelles de santé (MS) sont mises en place pour réduire la barrière financière et assurer à leurs membres un accès à des soins de qualité. Les MS établissent des relations avec les prestataires de soins sous forme de contrat, dont certaines clauses peuvent contenir des notions de qualité des soins (QS). A travers une vue d'ensemble de la typologie de 180 MS de 14 pays (dans Afrique Ouest et Centrale), cet article vise à analyser dans quelle mesure les caractéristiques des MS influencent la mise en œuvre de mécanismes contractuels susceptibles de faciliter la discussion sur la QS...
