Australian Health Promotion Association 16th National Conference 2006

Health Promotion Dreaming - Shifting the Sands

23 to 26 April 2006, Alice Springs Convention Centre, Northern Territory

With the recent international conference in Bangkok and the launch of the Bangkok Charter for Health Promotion in a Globalised World (WHO, 2005) there was clear emphasis on actions, commitments and pledges required to address the determinants of health. This will require not only strong political action, broad participation and sustained advocacy but a health promotion workforce that is able to translate these social determinants into meaningful action.

I am pleased that the 16th National Health Promotion Conference in Alice Springs will take us a little further on that journey. The central theme is Health Promotion Dreaming: Shifting the Sands. This conference will concentrate on indigenous health and social determinants as a central issue for practice. A broad cross section of indigenous and non indigenous keynote speakers will reflect on various aspects of these central issues, including the successes that we have achieved through innovative approaches; what we have learned (or should have learned) from both our failures and our successes; and what we need to do to apply our most recent developments in the field through a social determinants framework to practice. Speakers will also be challenging and confronting and suggest ways that we can move forward.

20/20 Vision - 20 Years since Ottawa, 20 Years from Now

2005 is a significant year for health promotion as it is 20 years since the drafting of the Ottawa Charter that was presented at the meeting of the 1st International Conference on Health Promotion held in Ottawa, Canada. At that meeting Australia, together with many other nations, signed the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion,which established an action framework for health promotion.

The 2005 Conference theme is ‘20/20 Vision – 20 years since Ottawa, 20 years from now’. The Conference will reflect on achievements in health promotion over the last 20 years and will present a vision for health promotion in Australia to reflect emerging health issues and evidence based practice.

Australian Health Promotion Association 14th National Conference 2002

Made in the Future - a conference on leadership, capacity building, evidence and advocacy

16 to 19 June 2002, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, New South Wales

'Made in the Future' is all about planning and forward thinking.  This kind of advance planning embodies the concept of leadership.  Health promotion interventions need to engage with partners, stakeholders and the people directly affected by an initiative to promote health.  The results need to be sustainable over time, hence the importance of capacity building and its link with leadership.

3 to 6 June 2001, Sheraton Mirage on the Gold Coast, Queensland

Ecological Health Promotion - Living by Principles

The conference theme of Ecological Health Promotion highlights how important it is for health promoters to consider the inextricable links between the environments in which people live, work and play, and their health and well being.  Increasingly we are thinking about the physical environment and its impact on health, but we also need to think about the social, cultural, economic, political and legislative conditions of living that also impact so significantly on health and well being.  Taking an ecological perspective on health promotion means that we think about all of these environments and the interactions between them.  This of course means that our work becomes far more challenging, as we can not afford to ignore any aspect of our ecological system when working with people to make a difference to their lives.
