8th Global Conference on Health Promotion

The 8th Global Conference on Health Promotion (8GCHP) focuses on how to promote health and equity by implementing the Health in All Policies approach - an approach to public policies across sectors that systematically takes the health implications of decisions into account.

The key outcomes of the Conference will be a conference statement and "Health in All Policies (HiAP) Framework for Country Action” which will give countries concrete guidance on how to implement Health in All Policies. 

The Conference is the eighth in the Global Conferences on Health Promotion series, the first one being the Ottawa conference held in Canada in 1986.

8GCHP will be held in Helsinki, Finland, from 10 to 14 June 2013. The conference is co-organized by the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health of Finland.
