Guide for Documenting Health Promotion Initiatives

This guide’s primary purpose was to create a simple, standard format to help support documentation of health promotion initiatives. It aimed to expand available information on how health promotion efforts are working which will allow for interchange of critical information regarding which approaches are effective, how key challenges are overcome, and what it is about the context in which these initiatives are carried out that make them successful. The Guide was intended to populate the PAHO website with experiences which could serve as a data base for informing the field, for providing examples that practitioners can emulate, and for offering a rich data source for researchers to analyze and draw conclusions from.
