Boost your health promotion skills

Boost your skills in health promotion and apply now to snap up one of the few remaining spots for HPF’s short course in health promotion, in Auckland, next month.

Block One of the course is from April 13 – 16 and Block Two from May 11 – 14, 2021.

Jointly offered by Manukau Institute of Technology and HPF the Certificate of Achievement (CoA) will help you better understand the role and importance of health promotion and the broader concept of health within a community and national setting.

As the world faces global challenges such as Covid-19 and the climate crisis the role of health promoters is becoming even more crucial!

As Fran Baum, Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor of Public Health at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia pointed out in an interview with HPF’s Hauora newsletter: “Health promoters can look to the underlying causes of Covid-19 and point to the importance of taking an ecological view of health.”

“They (health promoters) can ensure that the debate about Covid-19 goes beyond the need for a vaccine to considering how the inequities that have been laid bare by Covid-19 can be reduced.”

A limited number of scholarships are available.
