Health Promotion Through an Equity Lens

Health Promotion Through an Equity Lens

Wendy Rice

Health promotion is crucial to keeping people well and preventing illness. A major challenge is that many health promotion programs are focused on individual behaviour and do not take peoples’ unequal conditions and opportunities into account.  As a result, they are not effective for vulnerable and marginalized communities, and can actually make disparities worse if programs are taken up disproportionately by the more advantaged.  This paper by Wendy Rice analyzes how equity can be built into health promotion.

    The report health promotion through an equity lens is quiet interesting and I would like to cite to it in my thesis. But sorry to say that I miss some of the citation data. Could you help me with this?
