Planning Health Promotion Programs

Developing an evidence-informed program is an essential part of program planning in health promotion. Planning includes strategic program and operational planning components, as well as a series of decisions based on collecting and analyzing a wide range of information.

Workbook

The new edition of the Planning Health Promotion Programs Introductory Workbook helps readers understand and navigate the six steps needed to plan an evidence-informed health promotion program.
