Health Promotion Practice

Health Promotion Practice is a forum for authoritative research, commentary, practical tools and promising practices that strategically advance the art and science of health promotion and disease prevention.

Unique in its practitioner focus, HPP is committed to eliminating health disparities, achieving health equity, addressing social determinants of health, and advancing evidence-based health promotion practice.


HPP publishes a special collection on the lessons learned from health promotion in indigenous communities.

The new collection of papers focused on lessons learned from health promotion in indigenous communities in the United States and Canada.
