A master class in effective health promotion planning

The health and well-being challenges of the 21st century are driven by a range of complex factors, both within the control of individuals and communities (behaviour change) and beyond (policy, planning, and social determinants of health). Designing effective health promotion programmes in this field does not seem to have become easier. Sometimes the evidence of effectiveness even seems to contradict different efforts.

‘Intervention Mapping’ is a structured approach to designing effective health promotion programmes. It is an evidence based and theory-driven approach to appreciating and weighing evidence, feasibility, and fidelity for wide-ranging programmes. Applying the ‘Intervention Mapping’ lens allows for a rapid assessment and design of multi-level and interconnected approaches to health promotion.

On 28 February 2017 we host one of the originators of the approach (professor Gerjo Kok) and an accredited Master Class trainer (Gil ten Hoor) to work with a small group of health promotion planners and executives.
