Underpinned by the Healthy Universities settings concept, this paper presents a holistic intervention approach, called ARK, to improve the health and well-being of academic staff. ARK (a Norwegian acronym for work environment and climate study) has been conducted in 18 universities and university colleges in Norway. The survey has collected information on employees' perceptions of the psychosocial work environment, well-being, and health from over 15,000 respondents. Further, it has provided valuable information and experiences on organizational development processes on how to successfully implement a health-promoting intervention programme...

Trois Zones d'Apprentissage et de Recherche (ZAR) sont développées par le programme RIPSEC en République Démocratique duCongo (RDC). Cette stratégie consiste à utiliser un district sanitaire comme substrat pour former des managers des districts de santé et mener des recherches sur les systèmes de santé. L'objet de cet article est d'explorer les principes, les effets et les conditions de succès de cette stratégie à travers une évaluation qualitative des expériences ZAR antérieures en Afrique Subsaharienne...

Physical activity (PA) has declined in China due to urbanization in the past two decades. Evidence-based programs are good approaches to promote PA, but are limited in China. Adopting existing programs can be a viable option. Prior to that, readiness assessment is needed. This study aimed to assess community readiness levels for disseminating evidence-based PA programs to older adults in Changsha, China. In-person interviews were conducted with 33 participants of five districts in Changsha to assess the community readiness level in five dimensions: community knowledge of efforts, community climate, community knowledge about the issue, leadership and resources...

This study examined the effect of induced hypocrisy as a new anti-smoking advertisement approach on smokers' attitudes toward advertisements and their attitudes and intentions toward smoking cessation. It also comparatively analysed the effects of this tactic against those of the fear appeals that have traditionally been used in anti-smoking campaigns. The findings showed highly positive effects from induced hypocrisy on smoker attitudes and intentions toward cessation. Comparison of fear appeals and induced hypocrisy advertising on cessation showed stronger effects from the former on cessation intentions, although not to a statistically significant degree...

Traditional doctors have been largely ignored in HIV prevention, particularly primary prevention. As part of a structural intervention programme to reduce HIV risk among young women in Botswana, we trained 147 traditional doctors in four districts as well as government health education assistants (HEAs) and teachers to run discussion groups in the community and schools, using an evidence-based eight-episode audio-drama, covering gender roles, gender violence, and how these are related to HIV risk. One year later, we contacted 43 of the 87 trained traditional doctors in two districts...

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...

Cet article présente le processus suivi pour développer et implanter une intervention ciblée encourageant les femmes travailleuses du sexe (TS) à se faire dépister régulièrement pour le virus de l'immunodéficience humaine (VIH) dans les services de santé adaptés au Bénin. Le modèle de planification d' intervention mapping (IM) de Bartholomew et al. (2006), structuré en six étapes, a servi de référence pour guider le développement et l'implantation de l'intervention. Une analyse des besoins a été réalisée à partir d'une revue de littérature et d'une étude basée sur la théorie du comportement planifié, d'Ajzen (1991)...

Health Promotion (HP), a continuously evolving field, is riddled with complexities as experts and community members develop new approaches to researching social behaviours, addressing health concerns and advocating for the values of equity, empowerment and healthy public policy. Similarly complex is the field of knowledge translation (KT), putting research into action for the purpose of changing behaviours, policy and practice. Similar values, methods and techniques govern these two practices. This paper is based on a series of discussions between two young professionals who found themselves navigating the complexities of HP and KT and attempting to understand their chosen fields of practice...

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...
