Country X, an island in the Pacific, has a high mortality and morbidity rate due to non-communicable diseases. To help mitigate the impact of these diseases, Country X has developed a Health Promotion Unit. VicHealth is the world’s first health promotion company in Victoria, Australia. VicHealth revolutionized health promotion and became a leader in nation-wide mitigation campaigns for non-communicable diseases and sustainable, healthy, living. This case gives great background on VicHealth’s approaches to health promotion so that students will be able to identify key factors in developing a sustainable health promotion activity, differentiate methods to sustain health promotion activities, and create an action agenda for Country X.

Teaching Objectives

After reading and discussing the material, students should:

  • Identify Key factors for developing sustainable health promotion activities
  • Differentiate modes of health promotion and estimate the successfulness/impact of each mode
  • Develop an Action Agenda for country X's Health Promotion Unit for the next three years.
