Project Progress

As it has been from the beginning, HP-Source.net continues as a voluntary, international collaboration of researchers, practitioners and policy makers, having the common goal to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of health promotion policy, infrastructures and practices by:

  •  Developing a uniform system for collecting information on health promotion policies, infrastructures and practices;

  • Creating databases and an access strategy so that information can be accessed at inter-country, country and intra-country levels, by policy makers, international public health organisations and researchers;

  • Analysing the databases to support the generation of models for optimum effectiveness and efficiency of health promotion policy, infrastructure and practice;

  • Actively imparting this information and knowledge, and actively advocating the adoption of models of proven effectiveness and efficiency, by means of publications, seminars, conferences and briefings, among other means.

 HP-Source.net originated out of a partnership between the: 

  • The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)

  •  The University of Bergen (UB)

  • The Health Development Agency of England (HDA, England)

  • The International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE)

  • The European Commission (EC)
