Health and Human Development - The Ottawa Charter on Health Promotion

Ottawa Charter on Health Promotion

Use your mouse on the above graphic to find out further information
about the Ottawa Charter's five strategies for the promotion of health.

The Ottawa Charter [1] was a response to the growing expectation for a new
public health movement around the world. Participants at the first
International Conference on Health Promotion in 1986 agreed on a charter of
action to achieve 'Health for All' by the year 2000 and beyond. The aim of
the Ottawa Charter was to achieve health for all for the Year 2000 and
beyond. According to the Ottawa Charter, the prerequisites for health are
peace, education, income, sustainable resources, equity, shelter, food,
stable ecosystem and social justice. Health promotion is the process of
enabling people to have increased control and to improve their health. The
conference advocated five strategies for the promotion of health:

1. Build healthy public policy

2. Create supportive environments

3. Strengthen community action

4. Develop personal skills

5. Reorient health services

Emphasis was placed on health being a positive concept that encompassed
social and personal resources and physical capacities.
