Health Promotion Forum of New Zealand – Runanga Whakapiki Ake i te Hauora o Aotearoa (HPF) – is the umbrella organisation for all those who identify health promotion as part of their work.  Founded on the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the Ottawa Charter, our non-profit organisation provides information, training and resources to build the workforce and health promotion leadership.
The membership of the Forum is made up of over 100 organisations committed to improving the health and wellbeing of New Zealanders.  In addition over 3,000 individuals with an interest in health promotion subscribe to our newsletter and information.
As well as its leading work in Aotearoa New Zealand, HPF is increasingly being recognised as a health promotion leader at regional and international level. Our team is connecting more and more with other international leaders.  We share health promotion expertise and best practice to advance socio-economic wellbeing and other outcomes at all levels.
The Forum co-hosts the South West Pacific Regional Office of the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), and is a member of the Global Executive Board of IUHPE.

We have achieved some significant milestones this year and have great plans for the future.  Read the full article here
