The RSPH Health Promotion Awards showcases the contribution of health promotion to public health in the UK. The criteria has at its heart the principles of the Ottawa Charter and includes established commitment by organisations to health promotion, leadership at top level, strong strategies that tackle a wide array of health promotion issues - including health inequalities - and the development of workforce both internally and externally. Health promotion has a focus on participation by individuals and communities, and on strengthening community action.
Professor Richard Parish, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for Public Health said “The 2012 winners are great examples of good practice in health promotion. The Royal Society for Public Health is proud to offer these organisations the opportunity to demonstrate and celebrate their success through our Health Promotion Awards scheme. I would like to congratulate the winners whose passion, commitment and hard work is most admired!”
The RSPH would like to congratulate the winners and we would like to thank them for their outstanding work and commitment to the scheme.
RSPH would also like to extend our thanks to Lord Hunt, our President, for hosting the event.
