Reseña del editor
In the context of growing interest in addressing health disparities, inequalities, and inequities in diverse populations, community health promotion and health education are critically important strategies that need to be successfully employed. This book addresses the concepts and practices of promoting health and successful interventions in and with communities, including the role of education, localism versus globalisation and how to put health promotion strategies into practice. Drawing on the author's experiences and lessons learnt from many projects, practical examples are given to illustrate that health promotion in communities is a discipline rooted in practices and action, and to illuminate how the research and practice gap can be bridged. This useful resource is essential reading for health practitioners and researchers as well as students of public health sciences.
