12th National Health Promotion Conference

Hotel Sofitel, Melbourne, Australia

October 29 - November 1 2000

"The Australian Health Promotion Association is pleased to present the 12th National Health Promotion Conference in Melbourne from October 29th- November 1st 2000. The theme for the conference is `Inequalities in Health- Reflecting Back, Stepping Forward"

Perhaps one of the most pressing challenges facing the promotion of health at both the local and global level is the rapidly growing health inequalities. Despite more than 20 years of robust health promotion policy and practice and despite many of our successful outcomes, the gaps between those who have benefited from these activities and those who have not, are widening. This conference tackles these pressing health promotion realities by asking us to reflect on the wisdoms of the past and ask how we can apply this to the problems of the present and future. The Program Committee has invited a group of outstanding speakers and workshop presenters to challenge the conference theme: Inequalities in health, reflecting back, stepping forward. This conference will provide a forum for critically reflecting on how we can become radically more effective in improving the health and well-being ofour population with the explicit aim of reducing health inequalities in the 21st century. Five key streams have been selected that are specially relevant to our conference theme: primary care for disadvantaged groups, advocacy for change, inter-sectoral collaboration, work and health and global developments. This conference will build on the challenge of health inequalities being taken up in Mexico in June of this year. This is one conference you can not afford to miss. I encourage you to participate by submitting abstracts relating to your program or research and practice.
