The Nutrition-Friendly School Initiative was developed in 2006 to counter the double burden of malnutrition and implemented on a pilot basis in primary schools in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) in 2009. A baseline study was conducted in intervention and control schools and repeated in 2014 to assess the impact. This paper reports on anthropometric and biochemical data in the final and baseline surveys. Both studies were conducted in the fifth grade classes of the same primary schools in Ouagadougou. Six intervention schools had been selected and matched at baseline with six control schools...

Intersectoral collaboration amongst health and other sectors, as well as between government and non-governmental organisations, has been highlighted as a way to improve health equity. We used a mixed-methods approach to assess collaborative relationships between multiple government sectors and civil society and to suggest possible health promotion interventions and policy alternatives for the urban poor in deprived neighborhoods. A total of 18 participants involved in health promotion interventions and policy processes related to the inner-city area of Seoul were recruited using purposive sampling methods...

Limited health literacy is a neglected public health challenge in many countries. To bridge the gap, various interest groups, coalitions and networks have increasingly been formed. This study aimed to scope the formation of health literacy groups, coalitions and networks to map their existence and to discuss whether an actual global health literacy movement is under development. The internet was searched, particularly using Google, LinkedIn and Twitter. The 60 identified entities were categorised and analysed according to their target group, geographical origin, member profile, aim, year of establishment and communication platform...

BACKGROUND/RESEARCH QUESTION: In the health literacy (HL) discourse there is debate about the ways by which HL is impacting health. Three different, logically non-exclusive hypotheses are proposed: (a) HL as a specific, direct, social determinant of health; (b) HL as a mediator between other determinants and health; and (c) HL as a moderator of the effect of other determinants on health. Only few examples of empirically testing the mediator or moderator hypothesis exist. The data of the European Health Literacy Survey allow testing of the three hypotheses comparatively in parallel for functional and comprehensive HL...

BACKGROUND: Critical health literacy is the least explored domain of health literacy and is addressed by few projects seeking to build health literacy. Lack of research means there is little evidence upon which to design effective interventions. Yet critical health literacy offers potential for individuals and communities to make important contributions to their own and society's health. This paper reports on an evaluation of a community project designed to develop critical health literacy...

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...

Jae-Woong Yoo, Young-Ju Jin
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...

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...
