  • These strategies are supported by five priority action areas as outlined in the Ottawa Charter (action strategies)

    4. 4.  „the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their health‟ (WHO,1986)‟.  „Health promotion represents a comprehensive social and political process, it not only embraces actions directed at strengthening the skills and capabilities of individuals, but also action directed towards changing social, environmental and economic conditions so as to alleviate their impact on public and individual health. Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over the determinants of health and thereby improve their health (WHO 1998)‟.
    5. 5.   Any intentional activity which is designed to achieve health or illness-related learning, that is, some permanent change in an individual's capability or disposition‟ (Tones 2004: 7). Freire proposes that the main strategy of empowerment education, critical dialogue, requires us to engage in a process of problem posing rather than a process of problem solving.
    6. 6.  All people have strengths and are capable of determining their own needs, finding their own answers, and solving their own problems.  Every person and family lives within a social-historical context that helps shape their identity and social relationships.  Diversity is positively valued.  People without power have as much capacity as the powerful to assess their own needs (people are their own experts).  Relationships between people and groups need to be organized to provide an equal balance of power (professional/client ).  The power of defining health problems and needs belongs to those experiencing the problem.  The people disadvantaged by the way that society is currently structured must play the primary role in developing the strategies by which they gain increased control over valued resources.  Empowerment is not something that occurs purely from within (only I can empower myself), nor is it something that can be done to others (we need to empower the group).  Shared power relations do not deny health professionals their specialized expertise and skills.

Healthy public policy requires the coordinated use of all policy levers available, including „legislation, fiscal measures, taxation, and organizational change. Healthy public policy requires the identification and removal of obstacles to the adoption of healthy public policies in non-health sectors

    17. 17.   The more recent emphasis on health in the context of globalization makes the necessity for health promotion to engage with larger social movements, particularly on the global development agenda, even more apparent. Health promotion suspended between its constitutive desire to become one with the „community‟ and its real position as a mediating professional fraction, often acting on behalf of formal public institutions.
    18. 18.    Health Promotion Glossary describes what equity in health entails: „That all people have an equal opportunity to develop and maintain their health, through fair and just access to resources for health‟.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, health promotion gained considerable acceptance within the academic community.

To achieve its goals health promotion must engage directly with political philosophy and it must be aware of the dynamics of the global political economy and its effect on health.
