Health Promotion

Health promotion means providing people with information and advice on good health practices, treatment and care.  For example, it can include advice on how to stop the spread of diseases, ensure a child gets the right nutrition, or help someone get swift medical care when they need it. 

Activities might include health promoters giving a talk in person; sharing messages through the media (e.g. radio) or online; or using stories, songs and plays.

Because health promotion has the potential to make a lasting impact on a community’s health, it’s a vital part of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF)’s work.
