      Révélateur des inégalités sociales de santé, le tabagisme en établissement pénitentiaire exige des interventions visant sa réduction d’être adaptées aux spécificités du milieu carcéral. Dans le cadre de la recherche interventionnelle TABAPRI, nous avons mobilisé une première étude sociologique afin d’apporter des connaissances sur cette problématique. Une enquête a été réalisée au sein de trois établissements pénitentiaires, précédant les phases de construction, d’implémentation et d’évaluation de l’intervention. Cet article décrit d’une part la démarche méthodologique et d’autre part, la contribution de la sociologie, tant dans ses apports conceptuels que méthodologiques, à la construction d’une intervention. Notre travail a notamment souligné l’importance d’aménager des espaces d’échange permettant aux professionnels et aux personnes détenues de construire ensemble les modalités d'intervention qui participent à la réduction du tabagisme en détention.

      Introduction :La reprise du travail après un cancer favorise le rétablissement de la participation sociale mais se heurte à différents obstacles. Le projet FASTRACS vise à développer, implanter et évaluer une intervention pour faciliter le maintien en emploi après un cancer du sein. Le développement de l’intervention repose sur le protocole de l’Intervention Mapping. L’objectif de cet article est de décrire les contributions du partenariat chercheurs-acteurs dans le processus de modélisation de l’intervention durant les étapes du protocole de l’Intervention Mapping.Méthodes :Le processus de développement de l’intervention est reconstitué de façon chronologique en décrivant les méthodes mobilisées et les résultats obtenus à chaque étape du protocole grâce au partenariat chercheurs-acteurs.Résultats :Les membres du Comité stratégique (COS) ont été choisis par échantillonnage théorique parmi quatre catégories d’acteurs concernées. Une charte a été coécrite pour structurer durablement le partenariat. Les membres du COS ont contribué à l’échantillonnage des participants à l’enquête qualitative d’évaluation des besoins et à l’interprétation des résultats. Les objectifs de l’intervention ont été hiérarchisés selon leur importance et leur faisabilité perçues. Les chercheurs et membres du COS ont évalué les outils de l’intervention et débattu sur le modèle logique de l’intervention. Les professionnels de santé participant au COS ont facilité l’adhésion des équipes d’oncologie participant à l’intervention.Discussion :La construction du partenariat a permis de modifier les représentations des chercheurs. L’établissement de relations de confiance a nécessité du temps et de partager ses limites. Il a été difficile d’intégrer des patientes socialement défavorisées. Le recours accru à des patientes-expertes devrait être encouragé.Conclusion :La construction d’un partenariat de recherche collaborative entre chercheurs et acteurs nécessite du temps, des méthodes, et des financements dédiés. Cet investissement est de nature à améliorer la pertinence, l’acceptabilité, la légitimité et la pérennité des interventions développées.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1_suppl, Page 24-30, March 2021.
      Une recherche interventionnelle en santé des populations permet d’analyser les modalités de lutte contre les inégalités sociales de santé que pratique la Case de Santé de Toulouse (France). Créée en 2006, selon une approche de santé communautaire, cette organisation associative comprend un centre de santé de premier recours et un pôle santé-droits visant à accroître les capacités, individuelles et collectives, d’agir des très nombreux usagers-patients démunis qu’elle accueille afin d’améliorer leur santé et leurs conditions de vie. Cette expérimentation à visée de changement social rend nécessaires des arrangements partenariaux qu’une étude menée par le bas, selon les principes de la sociologie de l’action organisée, autorise à porter au jour. Il apparaît alors que la difficulté réside dans l’articulation entre, d’une part, la création, l’entretien et le bon fonctionnement des partenariats institutionnels induits par le projet et son financement et, d’autre part, les désajustements de ces derniers provoqués par des modes d’intervention associatifs proposant un modèle alternatif en santé.

      Cet article interroge les effets des modalités partenariales de recherche du projet GREENH-City associant des chercheur.e.s au Réseau français des Villes-Santé OMS (RfVS). Il propose une analyse de l’appropriation des connaissances scientifiques liées au projet par les villes membres du RfVS à partir du modèle de partage de connaissances. L’article montre qu’un décalage temporel peut s’opérer entre la production et l’utilisation des données liées au projet et interroge les modalités de partage de connaissances comme les pratiques de cette recherche interventionnelle.

      Cette recherche interventionnelle analyse les dynamiques d’engagement dans la collaboration entre des chercheur.se.s de sciences humaines et sociales et deux soignantes en cancérologie, pilotes d’un dispositif d’éducation thérapeutique de patient·e·s sous anticancéreux oraux. Nous nous attachons à analyser et à réduire les asymétries de savoirs et de pouvoirs pour favoriser les relations d’échange entre diverses expertises. Cet article retrace plus particulièrement les processus sociaux et épistémiques qui font évoluer les modes de coordination entre acteur.ice.s. Une enquête ethnographique (par observation participante et entretiens auprès des enquêtés) des trois années de partenariat permet de relever, au sein de différentes arènes collaboratives, la variabilité des formes de traduction entre ces acteur·ice·s et les ajustements méthodologiques de la recherche lorsqu'elle se confronte aux enjeux de l’intervention. Différents registres de médiation sont mobilisés par les chercheur.se.s, comme par les pilotes, qui impactent les formes de coordination. Nos résultats montrent que des négociations et des accords sont réalisés sans aboutir à des coordinations maximalistes, qui autoriseraient un travail commun de promotion de la RISP.

      La transférabilité des interventions en santé est un enjeu essentiel à la réduction des inégalités sociales de santé. Mais ces interventions sont complexes et leur efficacité n’est pas garantie lors d’un transfert d’un contexte à l’autre. La description des fonctions-clés des interventions concourt à une meilleure transférabilité. Toutefois, celle-ci repose rarement sur une méthode permettant de concevoir l’intervention en situation de transfert.Cet article explicite le processus méthodologique permettant l’identification des fonctions-clés de l’intervention en situation de transfert, et leurs déclinaisons nommées : « éléments de passation » (EP).Nous nous sommes appuyés sur une recherche collaborative orientée par la conception (RoC) visant à concevoir une intervention d’éducation pour les locataires âgés du parc social, leur permettant de décider et d’agir pour adapter leur logement à leurs besoins.Deux cycles de recherche sont menés au sein d’entreprises sociales pour l’habitat (ESH) avec des comités de recherche réunissant chercheurs, locataires et professionnels. Plusieurs étapes collaboratives ont été nécessaires : l’étude du contexte de l’ESH1 et la création d’une culture commune ; la formation des professionnels impliqués dans l’intervention d’éducation ; la déclinaison du modèle selon les critères de transférabilité d’ASTAIRE (outil pour l’analyse de la transferabilité des interventions en promotion de la santé) ; l’identification des variations et des éléments stables du modèle au moment du transfert vers deux autres ESH ; l’identification des fonctions-clés du modèle et de ses « éléments de passation ».À l’épreuve du transfert, l’intervention est décrite en quatre catégories de fonctions-clés, déclinées en EP. Les EP sont des résultats issus de la RoC jugés signifiants par les acteurs de la recherche. Ce sont des phénomènes explicatifs révélant des situations à prévoir pour réussir le transfert et rendre l’intervention efficace. Ils permettent de donner sens aux fonctions-clés pour que les acteurs souhaitant transférer l’intervention dans leur contexte puissent mieux s’y préparer.

      La prise en compte des inégalités sociales de santé (ISS) est une des préoccupations des programmes de santé. Ceux développés à partir d’interfaces numériques imposent un regard spécifique sur les ISS lié aux caractéristiques de l’outil. Ce commentaire a pour but de présenter une méthode d’analyse innovante des ISS dans les dispositifs numériques, basée sur une théorie d’intervention, à partir d’un exemple d’application sur un programme utilisant une interface numérique de visioconférence pour le développement de l’activité physique de patients suivis en oncologie. Il illustre l’intérêt et la faisabilité d’une mobilisation des acteurs du soin et de la recherche autour d’un outil d’évaluation et de réflexion simple, pour une retombée clinique concrète et immédiatement disponible allant dans le sens de la réduction des ISS.

      L’implication des patients et du public (IPP) dans la recherche interventionnelle est incontournable mais présente des défis à relever. L’IPP requiert une réflexion éthique et collégiale en amont de la conception de l’étude, des moyens et une gouvernance adaptée afin de tenir compte des enjeux collectifs et individuels qui sous-tendent ce nouveau partenariat.

      Ce texte explore deux grands enjeux, engageant à la fois des questions épistémiques et politiques qui nous semblent majeures pour l’implantation durable de la recherche interventionnelle en santé des populations (RISP) comme champ de recherche en santé. Nous interrogeons la notion de « données probantes » en montrant l’intérêt d’une appréhension à la fois exigeante et ouverte de cette catégorie dans le contexte d’expertises plurielles des RISP qui visent des modes de coordination plus fluides et étendus entre chercheurs, décideurs, intervenants et bénéficiaires des interventions dont les rapports sont potentiellement marqués par des inégalités épistémiques. Nous questionnons ensuite la nature de ces partenariats en invitant à une analyse plus approfondie de la dynamique des collaborations. Il semble en effet pertinent de considérer à la fois les séquences temporelles mais aussi les différentes échelles de contexte qui marquent les modes de coordination entre ces acteurs-experts du dispositif considéré.

  • How could patient navigation help promote health equity in sub-Saharan

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1_suppl, Page 75-85, March 2021.
      The indigents have long been excluded from health policies in sub-Saharan Africa. Despite recent efforts by some countries to allow them free access to health services, they face a multitude of non-financial barriers that prevent them from accessing care. Interventions to address the multiple patient-level barriers to care, such as patient navigation interventions, could help reverse this trend. However, our scoping review showed that no navigation interventions in low-income countries targeted the indigents. The objective of this qualitative study is, therefore, to go beyond the lack of evidence and discuss relevant approaches to act in favor of health care equity. We interviewed 22 public health experts with the objective of finding out which actions related to patient navigation programs (identified in the scoping review for other target groups) could be relevant and/or adapted for the indigents. For each ability to access care described by Levesque and colleagues, we were thus able to list the potential opportunities and challenges of implementing each type of action for the indigents in sub-Saharan Africa. Overall, the experts all felt that patient navigation programs were very relevant to implement for the indigents. They emphasized the need for personalized follow-up and for holistic actions to consider the whole context of the situation of indigence. The recommendations made by the experts are valuable in guiding political decision-making, while leaving room for adaptation of the proposed guidelines according to different contexts.

      Randomized trials are frequently used in clinical research and considered the gold standard, but they are less common in population health intervention research (PHIR). We discuss issues that are sometimes shared and sometimes distinct between PHIR and clinical research, notably the randomization unit, design, standardization of the intervention, outcome(s) and ethical issues. In the end, both PHIR and clinical research share the common aim of assessing interventions, and randomized trials should be more widely used in PHIR, provided that how they are planned and conducted is adapted to the PHIR context.

      Interventions to increase participation in cancer screening programs have been developed and evaluated by our research team. The results observed provide an opportunity to consider which methods of communication should be encouraged to improve those interventions. The objective of this commentary is to recommend communication strategies which should be adopted to efficiently reach and support disadvantaged individuals to engage in cancer screening, as a healthy behaviour.

  • Rebranding social distancing to physical distancing: calling for a change

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1, Page 5-14, March 2021.
      Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, the term ‘social distancing’ received immense attention in the mainstream and social media and was embraced by governments as a universal precaution to stem the coronavirus pandemic. ‘Social distancing’ belongs technically to a set of non-pharmaceutical infection control actions intended to stop or slow down the spread of a contagious disease. However, several weeks into the outbreak, scholars discussed whether the term was, in fact, misleading and could be counterproductive. To study the arguments, the study design included (1) analysis of the performance of the concepts ‘social distancing’ and ‘physical distancing’ based on Google Trends (15 February–15 June 2020); (2) analysis of the arguments used in media discussions of ‘social distancing versus physical distancing’ in the period 15 March–15 April 2020, derived from a Google search; and (3) a scientific literature review in PubMed. The study was conducted in English. The trend analysis showed the peak and the decrease of the relative popularity of ‘social distancing’ and ‘physical distancing’ during spring 2020. The thematic analysis of Google sources yielded an overview of arguments based on nine themes with two to five sub-themes reflecting on the misleading concept, the historical perspective, the sociological perspective, the public health perspective, alternative proposals regarding the social and the physical dimensions, the distinction of terms, the political choice, and the need for rebranding. Two papers were included in the scientific literature review, which both stressed the need for a change of terminology. In conclusion, the study emphasizes that the choice of terminology matters when life-saving public health messages are designed. It is therefore recommended to rebrand ‘social distancing’ to ‘physical distancing’ to enhance clear communication during the current COVID-19 pandemic in order to prepare for future pandemics.

           during the COVID-19 pandemic: a case of emerging inequities in Lebanon

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1, Page 33-41, March 2021.
      With the far-reaching COVID-19 pandemic starting in December 2019, a surge of misinformation, now coined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an ‘infodemic’, has also taken the world by storm. False information and variations in interpretations about the pandemic and mitigation interventions/strategies continue to spread at a faster pace than the relevant scientific evidence. The WHO has called for a fight against this infodemic, describing it as the most contagious aspect of the pandemic. In this era of rapid information exchange, public health measures, and state interventions to control the pandemic, a contextual understanding of how information is communicated and shared is important for uncovering possible reasons for action or inaction by the general public. With the Lebanese state scrambling to implement and enforce different measures to control and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, adherence by the general public is not uniform. In this paper, we refer to social science and risk communication theory to discuss how the political, economic and social contexts in the country, and not only the content of the messages that people receive from officials, affect how they interpret and act on information. We highlight how this has played out in Lebanon and identify societal aspects of importance in a low-middle income country fraught with social, economic and political inequalities which continue to undermine the efforts to contain the spread. Implications to inform state response in the context of low-middle income countries are also discussed.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1, Page 42-50, March 2021.
      Financial well-being describes when people feel able to meet their financial obligations, feel financially secure and are able to make choices that benefit their quality of life. Financial strain occurs when people are unable to pay their bills, feel stressed about money and experience negative impacts on their quality of life and health. In the face of the global economic repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, community-led approaches are required to address the setting-specific needs of residents and reduce the adverse impacts of widespread financial strain. To encourage evidence-informed best practices, a provincial health authority and community-engaged research centre collaborated to conduct a rapid review. We augmented the rapid review with an environmental scan and interviews. Our data focused on Western Canada and was collected prior to the pandemic (May–September 2019). We identified eight categories of community-led strategies to promote financial well-being: systems navigation and access; financial literacy and skills; emergency financial assistance; asset building; events and attractions; employment and educational support; transportation; and housing. We noted significant gaps in the evidence, including methodological limitations of the included studies (e.g. generalisability, small sample size), a lack of reporting on the mechanisms leading to the outcomes and evaluation of long-term impacts, sparse practice-based data on evaluation methods and outcomes, and limited intervention details in the published literature. Critically, few of the included interventions specifically targeted financial strain and/or well-being. We discuss the implications of these gaps in addition to possibilities and priorities for future research and practice. We also consider the results in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1, Page 51-59, March 2021.
      Foundry is a province-wide network of integrated health and social service centres for young people aged 12–24 in British Columbia (BC), Canada. Online resources and virtual care broaden Foundry’s reach. Its online platform – foundrybc.ca – offers information and resources on topics such as mental health, sexual wellness, life skills, and other content suggested by youth and young adults. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented significant and unique challenges to the youth and their families/caregivers served by Foundry. Disruptions to school, access to essential healthcare services such as counselling, familial financial security and related consequences has left young people with heightened anxiety. The Foundry team mobilized to respond to these extenuating circumstances and support BC youth and their families/caregivers during this hard time through three goals: (1) to amplify (and translate for young people and their families/caregivers) key messages released by government to support public health responses to the COVID-19 pandemic; (2) to develop content that supports the needs of young people and their families/caregivers that existed before COVID-19 and are likely to be exacerbated as a result of this pandemic; and (3) to develop and host opportunities through social media and website articles to engage young people and their families/caregivers by creating a sense of community and promoting togetherness and social connection during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each goal and plan integrated the leadership, feedback and needs of youth and their families through engagement with Foundry’s provincial youth and family advisory committees. Our study evaluated Foundry’s media response to the COVID-19 pandemic by recording/measuring (1) the website/social content created, including emerged thematic topic areas; (2) the process of topic identification through engagement with youth and young adults; (3) the social and website analytics of the created content; and (4) the constant, critical team-reflection of our response to the pandemic. Following measurement and reflection, our team offers recommendations to health promotion organizations for future preparedness.

      Unaccompanied minors (UMs) are children under 18 who arrive on the territory of a foreign country without the care of a guardian. In many countries their access to social and health care services depends on their legal recognition as minors. For instance, in France, high rejection rates of minor status place unprotected UMs in social precarity, such that in Paris, civil society organizations (CSOs) have stepped in to offer social, medical, and psychological care to unprotected UMs. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic however, CSOs had to adapt their care provision.We review promising CSO-led initiatives to ensure continuity of care for this population. In doing so, we highlight how, by promoting UMs’ healthy behaviors in the context of the pandemic, continued social interactions between CSO members and unprotected UMs may have contributed to disease prevention among UMs. In addition, CSOs have continued to advocate for sheltering unprotected UMs, calling on public authorities to take action.

      Shortly after a healthy default beverage (HDB) law took effect in Hawai‘i, requiring restaurants that serve children’s meals to offer healthy beverages with the meals, the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Efforts to contain the virus resulted in changes to restaurants’ operations and disrupted HDB implementation efforts. Economic repercussions from containment efforts have exacerbated food insecurity, limited access to healthy foods, and created obstacles to chronic disease management. Promoting healthy default options is critical at a time when engaging in healthy behaviors is difficult, but important, to both prevent and manage chronic disease and decrease COVID-19 risk. This commentary discusses COVID-19’s impact on restaurant operations and healthy eating, and the resulting challenges and opportunities for this promising health promotion intervention.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Volume 28, Issue 1, Page 89-97, March 2021.
      La télésanté connait un essor fulgurant en ce contexte de pandémie. Or, en cette période d’insécurité mondiale, la santé préventive reprend ses droits. En période de déconfinement, la discipline et la cohésion sociale peuvent se relâcher. Cette enquête sociale vise à décrire un programme d'intervention à distance, réalisé en partenariat avec des locataires de logement communautaire, des infirmières et des étudiantes pour soutenir la littératie en santé au temps de la COVID-19. Le Programme de déconfinement en toute sécurité vise à renforcer les mesures préventives et de soutien avec des groupes en contexte de vulnérabilités économiques et sociales à l’aide de la télésanté. Les infirmières ont développé des pratiques cliniques et psychosociales et renforcé la littératie en santé, soutenant les mesures de santé publique post-COVID-19, surveillant l’éclosion de nouveaux foyers et apaisant les souffrances issues du confinement. À l’aide de cibles de performance des systèmes de santé et d’une perspective de justice sociale, nous avons documenté les défis, les leviers et les menaces à l’usage des pratiques à distance en prévention. Vecteur d’une approche intégrée, la télésanté préventive peut cibler simultanément, la lutte contre les maladies non transmissibles et transmissibles et les inégalités. La pandémie de COVID-19 renvoie à un nouvel équilibre des enjeux qui exige un accompagnement et des pratiques de santé communautaire engagées et critiques.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Objectif :Le Programme de Développement Affectif et Social (PRODAS) est un programme de développement des compétences psychosociales des enfants ou adolescents mis en œuvre depuis 2005 en milieu scolaire par une association française (le Planning familial). L’objectif de cet article était de synthétiser les connaissances sur les effets de ce programme, afin de contribuer à l’étude de sa transférabilité.Méthodes :La revue de littérature réalisée a porté sur des études datant de 1970 à 2017. Ont été interrogées les bases de données : ScienceDirect, PsycNET, ERIC, PsycINFO, erudit, ISIDOR, Cochrane. Les mots clés utilisés étaient « Human Development Program » ou « PRODAS ».Résultats :Une amélioration, le plus souvent significative, des compétences émotionnelles et sociales des enfants et des adolescents était rapportée. Une relation de type dose-effet était également suggérée par certains résultats. Peu de données étaient disponibles chez les jeunes enfants (école maternelle) et aucune étude n’explorait les effets du programme à long terme.Conclusion :Cette synthèse a permis de mettre en lumière les principaux effets du PRODAS. Toutefois, considérant que ce programme est un des seuls à s’adresser aux enfants dès 4 ans en France, de futures études portant sur des enfants d’écoles maternelles, avec un suivi à long terme, seraient utiles pour compléter les données sur l’efficacité d’un tel programme.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Introducción:frente a la identificación de la ocurrencia de un brote de COVID-19 en el barrio Villa Azul (Buenos Aires, Argentina) y dadas las características de vulnerabilidad del barrio que dificultarían cumplir con el aislamiento domiciliario y las medidas de prevención, se implementó una estrategia de aislamiento comunitario como respuesta sanitaria al brote.Objetivo:describir la estrategia de aislamiento comunitario utilizada en el barrio Villa Azul para contener y mitigar un brote de COVID-19.Métodos:se identificaron los límites del barrio y se procedió al cierre del mismo con fuerzas de seguridad. Quedó permitida la circulación interna asumiendo que todos los habitantes eran casos sospechosos de COVID-19 o bien eran contactos estrechos de algún caso. En los días subsiguientes se continuó con la búsqueda activa de casos sospechosos, se realizaron los hisopados en el barrio y se obtuvieron los resultados a las 24 horas. Todos los días, luego de la recepción de los casos se les informaba el resultado a los casos negativos y se iba a las casas de los casos positivos para notificarlos del resultado y sugerirles el aislamiento fuera del barrio para cortar la cadena de contagios.Resultados:en el barrio Villa Azul entre el 22 de mayo y el 20 de junio, se registraron 731 casos sospechosos de los cuales 379 fueron casos confirmados de COVID-19 (tasa de positividad acumulada del 52,1%). La primera semana hubo entre 20 y 40 casos confirmados diarios con un índice de positividad entre el 66 y el 81% pero con el correr del tiempo como consecuencia de la estrategia descripta fueron bajando el número de casos por día y también la positividad. Se trasladaron 193 pacientes confirmados para aislarlos afuera del barrio. Fallecieron 3 personas (tasa de letalidad 0,8%).Discusión:la estrategia de aislamiento comunitario resultó efectiva para contener el brote de COVID-19 en el barrio Villa Azul.

  • Can transdisciplinary approaches contribute to the COVID-19 fight'

      Authors: Dilek Aslan
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) raised many questions needing answers in order to overcome the disease burden globally. Uncertainty about COVID-19 contributes to the complexity of the burden on the health, social, economic, and cultural influences of COVID-19. In this context, all related disciplines are working together to mitigate the negative influences of the disease. In particular, health promotion, a discipline of public health, matters to the pandemic as it may address the threats at different levels. Health promotion strategies mostly use solution-oriented efforts with inter- and multidisciplinary approaches. Nevertheless, as the COVID-19 burden has many time-critical determinants, these approaches cannot be sufficient to overcome the problem. A transdisciplinary approach in its broader sense using almost all inputs to synthesize and produce an integrative solution may be extremely helpful. In this paper, the importance of transdisciplinary approaches in health promotion to combat COVID-19 has been discussed.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction:Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a rapidly emerging global health challenge with multi-level determinants popularly known as social determinants. The objective of this paper is to describe the individual and community experiences of NCDs in the two case districts of Nepal from a social determinants of health perspective.Method:This study adopted qualitative study design to identify the experiences of NCDs. Sixty-three interviews were conducted with key informants from different sectors pertinent to NCD prevention at two case districts and at the policy level in Nepal. Twelve focus group discussions were conducted in the selected communities within those case districts. Data collection and analysis were informed by the adapted Social Determinants of Health Framework. The research team utilised the framework approach to carry out the thematic analysis. The study also involved three sense-making workshops with policy level and local stakeholders.Results:Three key themes emerged during the analysis. The first theme highlighted that individuals and communities were experiencing the rising burden of NCDs and metabolic risks in both urban and rural areas. The other two themes elaborated on the participant’s experiences based on their socio-economic background and gender. Disadvantaged populations were more vulnerable to the risk of NCDs. Further, being female put one into an even more disadvantaged position in experiencing NCD risks and accessing health services.Conclusion:The findings indicated that key social determinants such as age, geographical location, socio-economic status and gender were driving the NCD epidemic. There is an urgent need to take action on social determinants of health through multi-sectoral action, thus also translating the spirit of the recommendations made a decade ago by the Commission on Social Determinants of Health in addressing a complex challenge like NCDs in Nepal.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The current COVID-19 pandemic has exposed missing links between health promotion and national/global health emergency policies. In response, health promotion initiatives were urgently developed and applied around the world. A selection of case studies from five countries, based on the Socio-Ecological Model of Health Promotion, exemplify ‘real-world’ action and challenges for health promotion intervention, research, and policy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Interventions range from a focus on individuals/families, organizations, communities and in healthcare, public health, education and media systems, health-promoting settings, and policy. Lessons learned highlight the need for emphasizing equity, trust, systems approach, and sustained action in future health promotion preparedness strategies. Challenges and opportunities are highlighted regarding the need for rapid response, clear communication based on health literacy, and collaboration across countries, disciplines, and health and education systems for meaningful solutions to global health crises.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      With the current COVID-19 pandemic impacting communities across the globe, diverse health promotion strategies are required to address the wide-ranging challenges we face. Art is a highly engaging tool that promotes positive well-being and increases community engagement and participation. The ‘Create Hope Mural’ campaign emerged as an arts-based health promotion response to inspire dialogue on why hope is so important for Canadians during these challenging times. This initiative is a partnership between a health promotion network based in Vancouver and an ‘open air’ art museum based in Toronto. Families were invited to submit artwork online that represents the concept of hope. This paper discusses the reflections of organizers of this arts-based health promotion initiative during the early months of the pandemic in Canada. Our findings reveal the importance of decolonizing practices, centring the voices of those impacted by crisis, while being attentive to the social and political context. These learnings can be adopted by prospective health promoters attempting to use arts-based methods to address social and health inequities.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction:Equity and social justice have long been key tenets of health promotion practice, policy and research. Health promotion foregrounds the pertinence of social, economic, cultural, political and spiritual life in creating and maintaining health. This necessitates a critical structural determinants of health perspective that actively engages with the experiences of health and wellbeing among diverse peoples. The inequitable impacts of pandemics are well documented, as are calls for improved pandemic responses. Yet, current pandemic and emergency preparedness plans do not adequately account for the social and structural determinants of health and health equity.Methods:Through five one-hour online conversations held in April 2020, we engaged 13 practice, policy, research and community leaders on the intersections of COVID-19 and gender, racism, homelessness, Indigenous health and knowledge, household food insecurity, disability, ethics and equitable futures post-COVID-19. We conducted a thematic analysis of speaker and participant contributions to investigate the impacts and influence of COVID-19 related to the structural and social determinants of health. We analyzed which policies, practices and responses amplified or undermined equity and social justice and identified opportunities for improved action.Findings:Analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic revealed four broad themes:• oppressive, unjust systems and existing health and social inequities;• health and social systems under duress and non-responsive to equity;• disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 driven by underlying structural and socioeconomic inequity; and• enhanced momentum for collective mobilization, policy innovations and social transformation.Discussion:There was a strong desire for a more just and equitable society in a post-COVID-19 world, going ‘back to better’ rather than ‘back to normal.’ Our analysis demonstrates that equity has not been well integrated into pandemic planning and responses. Social movement and systems theories provide insight on ways to build on existing community mobilization and policy openings for sustained social transformation.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Internship programmes have the potential to provide learning and professional experiences, build students’ competency and strengthen partnerships between community and training institutions. In this paper, we examine the extent to which a structured internship at The University of the West Indies contributed to experience and competency-building, provided focus and met learners’ expectations and satisfaction among a cohort of unpaid health promotion interns. The contribution of placements to the strengthening of health education and promotion competencies and interns’ feelings about their experiences are included. Twenty-four (24) internship reports were reviewed using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. The majority of interns were Jamaicans (70.8%), 12.5% were from Dominica and the remaining 16.7% represented other nationalities. Health professionals comprised the highest percentage of cohorts (79.2%) and governmental agencies comprised the largest proportion (63%) of internship sites. Activities undertaken were in the areas of planning, implementing and evaluating programmes (71%) and conducting needs assessments (63%). Communication-related activities were reported by 43% of interns. Twenty-one per cent were engaged in lobbying and collaboration with other partners, while 23% established committees to oversee the sustainability of initiatives. While some interns reported negative experiences with supervision at their placement agencies, all valued internship seminars, which they found as a supportive environment in which they were able to share their progress with peers and academics. The opportunity for applying theory to practice and acting as resource persons were reflected as positives. The structured internship approach seems to have merits for building competence and engendering individual satisfaction.

      Objective:The aim of this study was to validate the content and appearance of an educational game for children aged 7 to 10 years, focusing mainly on cardiovascular health promotion.Method:The study used methodological research, with a quantitative approach. The validation process included the participation of 17 specialists in children and/or cardiovascular health. A concordance index of at least 0.80 was considered for content validation and 0.75 for the appearance of the proposed educational material.Results:The proposal of the educational game was considered valid, through some suggestions, in view of the purpose of sensitizing children in relation to the promotion of cardiovascular health while still in childhood.Final considerations:As a relevant factor in the use of games as strategies to improve health education, we emphasize that the participant is the active agent and the protagonist of the health-disease process.

      Authors: Amandine Vallata, Marjorie Cadeville, Charlotte Kanski, François Alla
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      La consommation de tabac est une des premières causes de mortalité évitable au niveau mondial. La dépendance au tabac s’observe dès l’adolescence. En complément des actions visant à prévenir l’entrée des jeunes dans le tabagisme, il est donc nécessaire de développer des stratégies spécifiques pour les adolescents déjà fumeurs. Un programme d’accompagnement au sevrage tabagique pour adolescents, TABADO, a montré son efficacité lors d’un essai contrôlé mené dans des centres de formation des apprentis en 2007/2009. En 2018, l’Institut national du cancer a souhaité généraliser TABADO au niveau national et l’étendre aux lycées professionnels. Pour accompagner ce processus de mise à l’échelle, il était essentiel d’élaborer la théorie d’intervention et d’analyser la transférabilité de TABADO en conditions de vie réelle et dans de nouveaux contextes, et de proposer les adaptations correspondantes. Une recherche spécifique a été conduite et détaillée par ailleurs. L’objectif de cette publication pragmatique est de présenter la nouvelle stratégie TABADO 2 aux acteurs et décideurs de santé publique, et le guide afférent développé pour les accompagner dans la mise en œuvre.Une étude de cas multiples (n = 10) a été menée à partir de la mise en œuvre de TABADO dans trois régions françaises, qui reposait sur des observations, entretiens et séminaires de retour d’expérience. Elle a mis en évidence l’adaptation de l’intervention aux contextes locaux, ainsi que de nouveaux leviers interventionnels mis en œuvre. De plus, les investigations ont montré que pour instaurer un climat favorable à la démarche d’arrêt de la consommation de tabac et soutenir son maintien sur la durée, il était nécessaire d’inscrire TABADO dans une stratégie globale de l’établissement scolaire et de son environnement. Cette démarche a permis de proposer une transformation de l’intervention TABADO en une nouvelle stratégie – TABADO 2 – et de proposer un guide pour accompagner son déploiement national.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction:The general objective of this research project was to explore the feasibility and acceptability of an original method intended to systematically identify urban planning projects whose potential impacts on health and social inequalities in health (SIH) would be most damaging. An approach based on a short meeting and a tool would help to discuss whether or not to engage in a more comprehensive health impact assessment.Methods:A tool was developed by the research team based on various tools reported in the literature and modified with urban planners. Meetings were organized for each development project with the volunteer planners, who were working on the projects selected. Reviews of six projects at different stages of design made it possible to assess the acceptability and feasibility of this approach to identify public health and social equity issues in health.Results:The process and the use of the tool were found to be feasible. The tool was easily understandable, adapted to the practices of planners and usable without real training other than a quick introduction to tool usage. It was also found to be acceptable. Despite an interest in the inclusion of SIH, the integration of the relationship between SIH and urban development was not easy for most of the urban planners.Conclusion:This exploratory work suggests that a systematic approach to assessing the impact of urban projects on health and SIH is feasible and acceptable. Dealing with SIH was not found to be easy by the urban planners.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      L’éducation est l’un des principaux déterminants de la santé. Or, la crise sanitaire a conduit à ce que 90% de la population étudiante mondiale, soit 1,57 milliard d’enfants et de jeunes dans 190 pays, soient privés d’école. Les conséquences de la fermeture des écoles sur les apprentissages et la santé sont bien établies. L’impact du confinement sur la santé des enfants et des jeunes est plus marqué que celui sur d’autres groupes d’âge car l’interaction entre pairs est un aspect essentiel du développement. De plus, les conséquences de la fermeture des écoles sont d’autant plus importantes que les élèves sont plus vulnérables socialement. Le dispositif de promotion de la santé « Réussir, être bien, être ensemble » est une démarche de co-contruction d’outils pédagogiques en éducation à la santé qui prend en compte la diversité culturelle, s’appuie sur les pratiques existantes, les partage et les enrichit des apports de la recherche (processus de conception continuée dans l’usage). Il a été activé pour élaborer avec les acteurs, et dans un temps très court, un ensemble d’outils à destination des écoles primaires en vue de s’assurer de la continuité pédagogique pendant la crise. L’évaluation de ces outils auprès des professionnels en activité et en formation (n = 50) montre qu’ils ont une bonne utilisabilité en référence aux pratiques de classe existantes (score de 8,2 sur 10) et aux besoins des élèves (score de 8 sur 10), une utilité pour le développement de compétences et de connaissances en éducation à la santé (score de 8,4 sur 10), une acceptabilité par rapport aux approches pédagogiques, aux supports contextualisés et à leur mise en œuvre (score de 8,3 sur 10). Cette étude montre que la promotion de la santé comme approche est susceptible d’offrir un cadre pour l’élaboration d’outils d’intervention adaptés en période de crise sanitaire.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The Bolsa Família Program (BFP) is one of the largest conditional cash transfer programs in the world, providing cash transfers and intersectoral actions. The aim of this study was to compare whether there is a difference in access to health services, intersectoral actions and social control, between families entitled or not, to the BFP. A cross-sectional study was carried out. A representative sample of a peripheral, socioeconomically vulnerable population from a large urban center in southeastern Brazil was calculated, totaling 380 families. Chi-square or Fisher’s exact tests and multiple correspondence analysis were used to compare groups. Families entitled to the BFP had worse living conditions in general and greater access to health services, such as: medical care (p-value 0.009), community healthcare agent (p-value 0.001) and home visits (p-value 0.041). Being entitled or not affected the variability in the pattern of access to services by 31%; low access to intersectoral actions was identified in both groups; social control was incipient. There was an adequate focus on the program; greater access to health services was related to compliance with conditionalities; low access to intersectoral actions can restrict the interruption of the cycle of intergenerational transmission of poverty.

  • Peri-urban water, sanitation and hygiene in Lusaka, Zambia: photovoice
           empowering local assessment via ecological theory

      Authors: Sikopo Nyambe, Taro Yamauchi
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) factors are responsible for 11.4% of deaths in Zambia, making WASH a key public health concern. Despite annual waterborne disease outbreaks in the nation’s peri-urban (slum) settlements being linked to poor WASH, few studies have proactively analysed and conceptualised peri-urban WASH and its maintaining factors. Our study aimed to (a) establish residents’ definition of peri-urban WASH and their WASH priorities; and (b) use ecological theory to analyse the peri-urban WASH ecosystem, highlighting maintaining factors. Our study incorporated 16 young people (aged 17–24) residing in peri-urban Lusaka, Zambia in a photovoice exercise. Participants took photographs answering the framing question, ‘What is WASH in your community'’ Then, through contextualisation and basic codifying, participants told the stories of their photographs and made posters to summarise problems and WASH priorities. Participant contextualisation and codifying further underwent theoretical thematic analysis to pinpoint causal factors alongside key players, dissecting the peri-urban WASH ecosystem via the five-tier ecological theory ranging from intrapersonal to public policy levels. Via ecological theory, peri-urban WASH was defined as: (a) poor practice (intrapersonal, interpersonal); (b) a health hazard (community norm); (c) substandard and unregulated (public policy, organisational); and (d) offering hope for change (intrapersonal, interpersonal). Linked to these themes, participant findings revealed a community level gap, with public policy level standards, regulations and implementation having minimal impact on overall peri-urban WASH and public health due to shallow community engagement and poor acknowledgement of the WASH realities of high-density locations. Rather than a top-down approach, participants recommended increased government–resident collaboration, offering residents more ownership and empowerment for intervention, implementation and defending of preferred peri-urban WASH standards.

      Authors: Jacopo Villani, Petra Daly, Ronnie Fay, Lynsey Kavanagh, Sandra McDonagh, Nurul Amin
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Irish Travellers and Roma are two ethnic minorities experiencing high levels of health inequities. These communities are at greater risk of developing COVID-19 and of suffering more severe symptoms due to poor living environments and higher rates of comorbidities. This study explores the strategies adopted by community-health partnerships and NGOs to minimise the potential widening of Travellers’ and Roma’s health inequities during the initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Ireland. A descriptive qualitative approach was employed to provide a detailed account of three different community and partnership-led responses. Data were gathered from multiple sources and through first-hand participation in the COVID-19 responses. Data were analysed using thematic analysis. This study found that the main pandemic mitigation interventions implemented were public health measures, culturally sensitive communications, lobbying for policy change and economic and social support. These interventions, supported by the health promotion strategies of partnership, advocacy and empowerment, have proven to be extremely important to reduce potential inequities in exposure to the virus and in access to healthcare. The findings suggest that community-health partnerships between minority groups’ organizations and healthcare professionals represent a viable approach to mitigate the disproportionate effects of a pandemic on Travellers and Roma.

  • The power that comes from within: female leaders of Rio de Janeiro’s
           favelas in times of pandemic

      Authors: Nilza Rogeria De Andrade Nunes
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      This paper aims to present how the female leaders of the favelas of Rio de Janeiro/Brazil have been protagonists in coping with the demands arising from COVID-19. The city has approximately 2 million residents living in 763 favelas. There is no strategic planning on the part of the government with coordinated actions related to the specificities of these territories—producing an escalation of demands due to the living and health conditions of the residents. It is in this multifaceted reality, with urgencies and emergencies, that we highlight the role of community by strengthening the local support networks that are built like webs inside the favela and beyond. Our statement is based on a qualitative study involving 111 such women, distributed across 105 favelas. Correlating their practices, 97% say they support health promotion through the strengthening of popular participation towards community development and defense of rights, and mobilization of health services to meet these populations’ needs, among other actions. With the presence of public agents in these places restricted in times of pandemic, these women often take up the duties of the local authorities to ensure food security, good communication among local residents on health standards, hygiene measures, assistance to the most vulnerable, etc. Perceived by community members as replacing the role of government agencies, they develop a particular way of doing politics. Calling upon resistance and solidarity, they transform this micro-power into effective changes to cope with the inequities and in benefit of citizenship and the other residents of the favelas where they live.

  • COVID-19, promotion and provision of palliative care: reaching out,
           accounting for linguistic diversity

      Authors: Bilkis Vissandjée, Isabel Fernandez, Patrick Durivage, Zelda Freitas, Paule Savignac, Isabelle Van Pevenage
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The combined forces of economic globalization and international migration have resulted in specific challenges to palliative care systems. The COVID-19 pandemic has and is still greatly affecting elder populations as well as those across the age continuum living with long-standing chronic conditions or with pre-existing diverse unmet needs. While health promotion and palliative care may appear to be conceptually opposing fields, we argue that palliative care can and should fit under the umbrella of the health promotion continuum. This commentary seeks to discuss the importance of linguistic literacy and communication imperatives in the context of access to palliative care, given the broad, diversified and sensitive scope of care. While the pandemic has demonstrated that the public health responses of migrant host societies are deeply intertwined with policies as well as local rules and constraints, the promotion and provision of safe, timely and appropriate palliative care can be achieved through a sensitive assessment of differential contexts of diversity. The pandemic has painfully illustrated the need for a strong, respectful and equitable working partnership within the professions as well as with the civic society in order for the palliative needs of those exposed to a sustained risk not to be forgotten.

      Authors: Adi Mana, Sabina Super, Claudia Sardu, Dolors Juvinya Canal, Neuman Moran, Shifra Sagy
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Employing the salutogenic model, we asked how individuals in different countries cope with the COVID-19 crisis and stay healthy. We were interested in exploring the individual (i.e. sense of coherence) as well as the social and national resources (i.e. social support, sense of national coherence, and trust in governmental institutions) that could explain levels of mental health and anxiety during the outbreak of the pandemic. Data collection was conducted via convenience sampling on online platforms, during the end of March and the beginning of April 2020. The data included four samples: 640 Israeli participants (319 males), 622 Dutch participants (177 males), 924 Italian participants (338 males) and 489 Spanish participants (117 males); age range of 18–88 years. The questionnaires included standard tools (MHC-SF, GAD-7, SOC, SONC). Several questions were adapted to the context of coronavirus and measured levels of exposure to COVID-19, trust in governmental institutions, and social support. The results significantly confirmed the suggested salutogenic model regarding the contribution to individual and national coping resources to anxiety levels and mental health. The patterns of the coping resources in explaining anxiety and mental health were similar in the four samples, and SOC was the main predictor these outcomes. Despite these similarities, a different pattern and also different magnitudes of the predictive value of the coping resources were found for the two different reactions: anxiety vs. mental health. While SOC and situational factors (like financial threat) were significant in explaining anxiety levels, the SOC and national resources were found as significant in explaining mental health levels. The findings support the salutogenic approach in studying reactions during pandemic time. They also shed some light on the difference between pathogenic and salutogenic measures in studying psychological reactions to stressful situations.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in massive disruptions to public health, healthcare, as well as political and economic systems across national borders, thus requiring an urgent need to adapt. Worldwide, governments have made a range of political decisions to enforce preventive and control measures. As junior researchers analysing the pandemic through a health equity lens, we wish to share our reflections on this evolving crisis, specifically: (a) the tenuous intersections between the responses to the pandemic and public health priorities; (b) the exacerbation of health inequities experienced by vulnerable populations following decisions made at national and global levels; and (c) the impacts of the technological solutions put forward to address the crisis. Examples drawn from high-income countries are provided to support our three points.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      There has been a rise in non-communicable diseases (NCD) in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), driven by westernization, urbanization and unhealthy lifestyles. The prevalence of NCDs and their risk factors vary considerably in SSA between countries and the various sub-populations. A study documented the prevalence of stroke ranging from 0.07 to 0.3%, diabetes mellitus from 0 to 16%, hypertension from 6 to 48%, obesity from 0.4 to 43%, and current smoking from 0.4 to 71%. The numbers of these NCD cases are predicted to rise over the next decade. However, in the context of a global pandemic such as COVID-19, with the rising cases, lockdowns and deaths recorded worldwide, many people living with NCDs may find accessing care more difficult. The majority of the available resources on the subcontinent have been diverted to focus on the ongoing pandemic. This has caused interruptions in care, complication management, drug pick-up alongside the almost neglected silent NCD epidemic, with major consequences for the health system post the COVID-19 era. We explore the issues surrounding the continuity of care and offer some solutions for Sub-Saharan Africa.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Mantener un adecuado control de la diabetes se relaciona con variables como autocuidado y sentido de coherencia que reducen las tasas de morbilidad y mortalidad. El objetivo fue evaluar el efecto mediador del sentido de coherencia en la relación entre autocuidado y niveles de glucosa en sangre de personas con diabetes. A 220 sujetos con diabetes mellitus tipo 2 se les aplicó un instrumento para autocuidado y otro para sentido de coherencia, mientras que la hemoglobina glucosilada se obtuvo del expediente médico, posteriormente se analizaron los datos por medio de un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales. Los resultados muestran que el tanto el autocuidado (c’ = −0.33; p < 0.05), como el sentido de coherencia (b = −0.34; p < 0.05) tienen un efecto directo sobre los niveles de glucosa, así como también un efecto indirecto significativo (−0.168; p < 0.05). El efecto total de AC sobre A1c corresponden a −0.498. En consecuencia, este modelo estimado corresponde a un modelo de mediación simple parcial. Los resultados confirman la hipótesis de que el sentido de coherencia en personas con diabetes media la relación entre AC y HbA1c. El enfoque salutogénico mejora la adherencia a las conductas de autocuidado, lo que puede facilitar el control glucémico de la enfermedad.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      La Promoción de la Salud (PS) es una función esencial de la salud pública que se ha puesto en tensión frente a la pandemia de la COVID-19, dado que los discursos y estrategias basados en la prevención y curación de la enfermedad han invisibilizado las condiciones de vida e inequidad que son centrales para la PS. La salud colectiva latinoamericana plantea cuestionamientos prácticos y epistemológicos sobre las acciones ante la epidemia en los países del Sur Global, proponiendo enfoques alternativos al paradigma biomédico y a lo que este entiende como PS. Desde la salud colectiva, la PS tiene como elementos centrales la autonomía de las comunidades, la importancia de sus saberes, y el fomento de acciones colectivas territoriales. Este artículo, a través de una cronología crítica de la pandemia en dos territorios, describe situaciones documentadas que ponen en evidencia el despliegue de condiciones esenciales de posibilidad para una PS desde la salud colectiva, es decir, el papel de la justicia social en la organización comunitaria, la perspectiva territorial y los procesos emancipatorios y de construcción de autonomía. Los casos analizados corresponden a un territorio insular del sur de Chile y a una comuna urbana de la capital del país, elaborados mediante el involucramiento directo de los investigadores y una revisión documental y de prensa. Sus antecedentes y contextualización evidencian las modalidades concretas que toma la PS durante la pandemia en dos contextos con características diversas, permitiendo identificar desafíos y arribar a aprendizajes iniciales sobre el desarrollo de una PS territorialmente situada.

      Authors: Trevor Shilton, Margaret M. Barry
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The Political Declaration from the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage: Moving Together to Build a Healthier World (2019) provided important reaffirmation of health as a precondition for sustainable development and equity, as well as of the role for primary care as a cornerstone of universal health coverage. Health promotion, prevention and sustainable healthcare go hand in glove. Health promotion can enable more effective use of health resources by reducing demand for expensive health services and reducing hospital admissions. Promoting mental and physical health, and addressing health literacy and the social determinants of health, enables governments and departments of health to (i) empower citizens and communities to take control of their health, and (ii) better support innovative and financially sustainable healthcare. Without the bedrock underpinning of effective health promotion, treasuries and health systems will struggle to meet the rising costs and burden of ill health.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Background:The World Health Organization and the International Labour Organization recognize that workplace health is not only affected by occupational hazards, but is mainly affected by social determinants and individual factors. An accelerated rise in noncommunicable diseases has fostered the importance of creating supportive environments and encouraging healthy behaviours. Therefore, an operational approach to making workplaces healthy and sustainable is needed. This paper describes the development of an e-Health monitoring program entitled ‘Integrated eHealth Monitoring System for Health Management in Universities’ (e.cuidHaMUsTM) as a possible solution to that operational approach.Methods:We developed the program e.cuidHaMUsTM that proposes to detect risk behaviours related to noncommunicable diseases and to implement problem-solving measures by establishing a health-promoting workspace in a Portuguese higher education institution. Based on the ‘I-Change’ conceptual model, our program provides personalized feedback; improves health-related knowledge, attitude and good practices; and encourages actions to promote healthy lifestyles through individual health capacitation. Focusing on evaluation as an activity that generates knowledge, the e.cuidHaMUsTM program aggregates all the relevant health information, shares the results with decision-makers and evaluates health-related policy changes in the workplace.Discussion:This paper presents the design of the e.cuidHaMUsTM program, the development of an eHealth web platform to share information between the different stakeholders, and a questionnaire to evaluate the health status of higher education institution workers (e.cuidHaMUs.QueST®). Also, the procedures for data collection and analysis are outlined. The e.cuidHaMUsTM program can enhance health surveillance through cross-sectional and longitudinal studies and provide scientific evidence to support the envisioned interventions and promotions of healthy lifestyles. This program is an effort to incorporate a holistic culture of health-promoting workspace in higher education institution policies.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Maternal and newborn child health are priority concerns in Bauchi State, northern Nigeria. Increased male involvement in reproductive health is recommended by the World Health Organization. A trial of a program of universal home visits to pregnant women and their spouses, with an intention to increase male involvement in pregnancy and childbirth, showed improvements in actionable risk factors and in maternal morbidity. We used a narrative technique to explore experiences of the visits and their effect on gender roles and dynamics within the households.Methods:Trained fieldworkers collected narratives of change from 23 visited women and 21 visited men. After translation of the stories into English, we conducted an inductive thematic analysis to examine the impact of the visits on gender norms and dynamics.Results:The analysis indicated that the visits improved men’s support for antenatal care, immunization, and seeking help for danger signs, increased spousal communication, and led to changes in perceptions about gender violence and promoted non-violent gender relationships. However, although some stories described increased spousal communication, they did not mention that this translated into shared decision-making or increased autonomy for women. Many of the men’s stories described a continuing paternalistic, male-dominant position in decision-making.Conclusions:Few studies have examined the gender-transformative potential of interventions to promote male involvement in reproductive health; our analysis provides some initial insights into this.

      Authors: Juan Camilo Calderón Farfán, Juan David Dussán Chaux, Dolly Arias Torres
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction:Indigenous peoples’ food systems have weakened as a result of pressures exerted by agro-commercial policies and chains, which has led to the dependency and deterioration of their ways of life. It is in this context that the construction of perspectives on food autonomy positions itself as a potential and strategic field of social decolonial mobilization for indigenous peoples’ health and buen vivir.Objective:The aim of this study was to analyze the meanings of food autonomy from the perspectives of a Nasa Indigenous community in Colombia.Method:This was a qualitative study, involving 38 Indigenous people belonging to the Nasa Huila Indigenous community, aged between 18 and 73, with different occupations. The information was obtained by means of discussion groups and processed through content analysis. The project had the consent and ethical endorsement of the indigenous community.Results:According to the study group, food autonomy is related to the Nasa identity, today weakened by territorial conditions, proximity to non-indigenous populations and the external influence of institutional food programs. Food autonomy develops by means of practices aimed at the production, distribution, preparation and consumption of healthy, chemical-free, homegrown food products from the family level, for self-consumption and in resistance to dependence on external commercial chains.Conclusion:Food autonomy positions itself as a community and political strategy that integrates the strengthening of family gardens, the adaptation of a food program menu, education and governance towards the development of autonomous processes from a decolonial perspective, for the promotion of health and buen vivir.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Respectful maternity care and its effect on breastfeeding is not widely explored. Disrespect and abuse affect the health of the mother and the newborn, affect lactogenesis and negatively influence breastfeeding. This has serious short-term and long-term ill effects. Separation of the mother and the newborn result in failure to establish early breastfeeding. Interventions, policies and programs should be developed to address the issues pertaining to respectful maternity care. This will not only help in breastfeeding but will also safeguard the fundamental rights of the mother and the child.

      Authors: Dana Bar Ilan, Yaniv Reingewertz, Orna Baron-Epel
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The World Health Organization’s Healthy Cities Network (HCN) enlists community stakeholders (residents, businesses, non-governmental organizations and municipal governments) to promote health, quality of life and sustainable development in urban settings. The project, now three decades old, involves thousands of municipalities globally, including 52 in Israel. However, there is very little evidence regarding the effects of joining the HCN. This study examines whether HCN membership affects residents’ self-reported health (SRH). Social survey data for Israel’s 13 largest cities in 2005–2017 were analyzed using difference-in-differences and event study research designs. We use the gradual entry of cities to the HCN to compare SRH before and after network entry. Examined variables include municipal spending on health and duration of the city’s participation in the network. Data were analyzed through multivariate linear regression with fixed effects at the city and year levels. Joining the HCN does not have an immediate effect on SRH. SRH increases with the duration of the city’s participation in the network, but this result is only marginally statistically significant. Municipal health spending mildly increases with membership duration. A weak negative association was found between municipal health spending and SRH. Duration of a city’s membership in the HCN is positively associated with residents’ SRH; this association is not explained by an increase in municipal health spending. Identifying a mechanism for this improvement is beyond the scope of this study and is left for future research.
