Global Health Competencies

SOPHE collaborates with international partners to address global health crises.

In 2008, SOPHE and the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE) developed domains of core competency, standards, and quality assurance in health promotion and education.

Twenty-six leading authorities in competency-based and accreditation movements in global health promotion, health education, and public health met in Galway, Ireland. The group reached an accord on the domains of core competency in health promotion and health education.
