      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Objetivo:evaluar el apoyo organizacional percibido y los comportamientos de empoderamiento en mujeres sobrevivientes de cáncer de mama, activas laboralmente, en un centro de referencia oncológico.Métodos:estudio descriptivo en el que se recolectaron datos sobre las características sociodemográficas, laborales, clínicas, las secuelas del tratamiento, los comportamientos de empoderamiento y la percepción del apoyo organizacional.Resultados:Cerca del 90% de las mujeres conservó el trabajo anterior al diagnóstico. El 69% reportó que sus ingresos se mantuvieron iguales. La mayoría de las mujeres participantes percibieron bajo apoyo organizacional, y este cambia según la presencia de algunas secuelas del tratamiento. El 49.6% de las participantes había adoptado totalmente comportamientos de empoderamiento que varían significativamente de acuerdo con la edad, la presencia de secuelas, el apoyo organizacional percibido y el tiempo de retorno al trabajo.Conclusión:Las secuelas del tratamiento tienen influencia sobre el apoyo organizacional percibido y la adopción de comportamientos de empoderamiento.

      Authors: Sinan Aslan, Ercan Çinar, Nuriye EFE Ertürk, Peyda Baysal
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Aim:The aim of this research is to investigate the relationship between rational drug use and healthy lifestyle behaviours of university students.Method:This descriptive and cross-sectional study consisted of 1115 students from a university in the Southeast-East Anatolia Region in the autumn semester of the 2019–2020 academic year. In the collection of data, ‘Student Introduction Form’, ‘The Rational Drug Use Scale’ and ‘The Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile II’ were used. Ethical approval was obtained from the Batman University Ethics Committee. In addition, necessary legal permissions were obtained from the institution where the study was conducted and from the students. Descriptive statistics, number, percentage, independent t-test, ANOVA test and Spearman’s rank correlation were used in the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) 22.0 package software to analyse the data.Results:The average age of the students was 21.31 ± 2.37 years, and their monthly drug expenditure was 142.63 ± 157.200 Turkish Lira. Some 28.1% of them were third-year students, 59% had graduated from Anatolian high school, 59.6% were living with their nuclear family, 49.1% had an equal level of income and expenditure, 7.7% had no chronic disease, and 9% had regular medication. Some 57.8% of them had health insurance. The Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile II scale mean score of the students was 124.12 ± 21.37 and the Rational Drug Use Scale mean score was 33.65 ± 6.75. A statistically significant difference was found between the students’ class, income, and the total mean scores of the health-promoting lifestyle profile II scale (p

  • Definitions of positive health: a systematic scoping review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Yuliya Bodryzlova, Gregory Moullec
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      An agreed definition, model, and indicators of positive health would contribute to a better understanding and wider use of the term, thus favoring the development of the positive health approach in public health. However, there is no consensus even on the definition of positive health. In this study, we systematically reviewed its definitions. We conducted a scoping review as per PRISMA guidelines. We queried the MEDLINE, Embase, PsychINFO, and Web of Science databases. The PubMed search equation was: ‘positive health’ [Title/Abstract] AND (‘health’ [MeSH] OR ‘health status’ [MeSH] OR ‘health status indicators’ [MeSH]). Definitions of positive health referring to a ‘one-dimensional’ conceptualization of health are: (i) positive health as a state ‘far beyond a mere absence of disease’; (ii) positive health as wellbeing; and those referring to a ‘two-dimensional’ conceptualization are (iii) positive health as resilience and (iv) positive health as (a reserve in) capacities. This work contributes to the refining of the salutogenic vocabulary. At this stage of the ongoing discussion on health promotion vocabulary, we propose the ‘reserve in capacities’ as the candidate for the definition of positive health.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Africa is contending with unhealthy food environments that are, in part, driving increasing rates of overweight, obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases, alongside persistent undernutrition. This current paradigm requires expanded efforts – both in the volume and nature of empirical research, as well as the tools and capacity of those who conduct it. High quality and context-relevant research supports the development and implementation of policies that create healthy food environments.Aim and approach:This paper sets out the concept of the Africa Food Environment Research Network (FERN) initiative recently established by the Measurement, Evaluation, Accountability, and Leadership Support for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) (MEALS4NCDs) prevention project. Central to the Africa FERN initiative are: 1) building research capacity for innovative food environment research in Africa; 2) improving South–South, South–North partnerships to stimulate robust food environment research and monitoring in Africa and 3) sustaining dialogue and focusing priorities around current and future needs for enhanced food environment research and monitoring in Africa.Conclusion:The FERN initiative presents an opportune platform for researchers in Africa and the global North to weave the threads of experience and expertise for research capacity building, collaboration and advocacy, to advance food environment research.

  • A tangata whenua (people of the land) approach to conceptualising
           Māori health and wellbeing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Angelique Reweti, Felicity Ware, Hoani Moriarty
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      From a Māori (Indigenous to New Zealand) perspective, health is not confined to the treatment of illness but also includes the philosophical concepts, structures and cultural practices which reinforce health and wellbeing. The ill-health of Māori is often the focus of health initiatives, particularly if there is an equity approach that centres on disparities between ethnic groups. However, an Indigenous approach prioritises health and wellbeing aspirations through strengthening self-determination, identity and connection with the environment. This article synthesises knowledge from Indigenous and Māori rights, mātauranga (Māori ways of knowing) expressed in pūrākau (epistemological narratives), tikanga (Māori principles), te reo (Māori language) and lived experience to reflect a shared understanding of Māori health and wellbeing. Consideration is given to the status of Māori pre-colonisation, the ongoing impacts of colonisation, and Māori led responses to contemporary health issues. It is proposed that health for Māori, like many Indigenous peoples, should be informed by an enhanced understanding of Indigenous rights, an Indigenous worldview and notions of wellbeing. We argue that a tangata whenua (people of the land) approach is integral to the effectiveness of health policies and initiatives aimed at improving Māori outcomes sustainably. We propose that the current reorganisation of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic response, provide opportunities to emphasise and embed Māori health leadership and knowledge, as well as a tangata whenua conceptualisation of health and wellbeing.

      Authors: Kate Mulligan
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      A growing body of evidence demonstrates that digital inclusion mediates access to other social determinants of health – directly, through access to and literacy in technologies or services, and indirectly, by supporting people’s capacity to participate fully and equitably in civic and cultural life online. Novel approaches to community-led participatory journalism, in which people from equity-deserving communities are supported to tell their own stories, suggest promising practices for online civic engagement as an emerging approach to promoting health though digital inclusion.

      Authors: Helena J. Chapman, Bienvenido A. Veras-Estévez
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Moving into the next decade, the global health workforce can lead efforts to identify emerging health threats and develop immediate action plans to mitigate adverse effects on community health and well-being. To prepare health workers in their delivery of health education activities, the authors propose three didactic (‘train the trainers’) approaches: essential ‘learning moments’, critical analyses of One Health challenges, and the use of innovative real-time visualizations. Health workers’ leadership is vital to achieve the targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, to safeguard population health, and ultimately to strengthen global health security.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      La soberanía alimentaria es el derecho colectivo a decidir sobre la producción, distribución y consumo de alimentos, promueve la generación de suministros alimenticios para el consumo local, de tal forma que los consumidores queden resguardados de la volatilidad de los precios de mercados internacionales. En los pueblos indígenas esta tendencia resulta trascendental para hacer frente a condiciones de inequidad histórica que han impactado negativamente su salud pública. No obstante, es ignorada en algunos casos y en otros reemplazada por nociones centradas en la seguridad alimentaria, término alineado con políticas transnacionales derivadas del modelo económico dominante. Objetivo: analizar con tres comunidades indígenas de Colombia las perspectivas de soberanía alimentaria y su influencia en la salud. Método: investigación participativa basada en comunidad que recolectó datos mediante grupos de discusión, entrevistas y observación. La población de estudio fueron tres comunidades indígenas del sur de Colombia. La selección de participantes se realizó según su trayectoria en la comunidad. Resultados: las comunidades entienden la soberanía alimentaria como la conservación de semillas nativas y alimentos propios, vista como oportunidad para el cuidado de la salud. Su debilitamiento se relaciona con el desarrollo de enfermedades de las personas y de la madre tierra. Para su fortalecimiento identificaron el tul, el yatul y la chagra (huertas) que reafirman la unión familiar, contribuyen a la recuperación de modos de producción desde la sabiduría ancestral y se posicionan como alternativa para la sostenibilidad económica. Conclusión: la soberanía alimentaria conserva los saberes y prácticas tradicionales para una alimentación propia, debilitada por los sistemas agroindustriales. Es asumida como iniciativa local suscrita en un proyecto global de resistencia política y económica para la salud colectiva de los pueblos.

      Authors: Priscilla Magrath, Mark Nichter
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      ObjectiveIn this article we illuminate the important, yet typically underreported, role played by moral framing in public health messaging. We present case studies from West Java, Indonesia to demonstrate how moral framing is used to motivate health volunteers and to promote behavior change in line with government health policies.MethodsWe used qualitative research including participant observation, job shadowing, interviews and focus groups with health promotion workers and community members. Findings were analyzed using thematic and discourse analysis.ResultsWe identified three moral frameworks typically used to encourage shifts in normative health practices in Indonesia: Islamic values, right to health, and evidence-based public health policy, represented as indicative of modernity. Health workers tailor these moral frameworks to audiences in their health promotion work. While the immediate goal is to meet health performance targets, the broader goal is to generate forms of health citizenship commensurate with Indonesia’s political environment of democratic decentralization.Conclusion and LessonsCOVID-19 presents an opportune moment for the public health community to reevaluate the power of moral framing in health messaging, and how it can be used both as a compelling means of establishing community norms toward the common good, as seen in our Indonesia case study, and also as a mechanism used by counterpublics to challenge these norms and appeal to alternative values and versions of reality.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Health promotion is the most favorable approach and process to achieve a positive health outcome of the population. Several countries across the world are committed to achieving positive health for their people with the best health promotion strategies. Health promotion, in fact, shares a large portion of health care economy and resources in many countries. A low-income country like Nepal, however, lacks the implementation of rigorous health care strategies on a large scale and is deficient in evidence of the potential scope of health promotion. Nepal has adopted the global health promotion declaration on paper; however, health care providers and authorities are still working in a traditional way using existing health policies and strategies. This paper aims to explore some of the global best practices of health promotion, including the challenges and opportunities by adopting such practices in Nepal, and provides some recommendations as a way forward.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Healthy lifestyles are commonly associated with improved physical and mental health. Sleep patterns, nutrition, physical exercise, consumption of psychoactive substances, among others, can strongly influence positive mental health. The aims are: characterize lifestyles based on positive mental health clusters, considering the cross-sectional cohort sample of higher education students, and analyse the lifestyles associated with positive mental health. A cross-sectional, descriptive, correlational and multicentric study of quantitative approach was conducted. The Positive Mental Health Questionnaire was applied. Through the k-means method, four clusters were obtained based on positive mental health levels. The sample of 3647 higher education students was mostly female (78.8%), single (89.5%), with an average age of 23 years (SD = 6.68). Differences were found between clusters based on the sociodemographic characteristics and lifestyles. Findings in Cluster 1 were highlighted because they included students with a higher level of positive mental health, which was associated with greater satisfaction in affective relationships, higher recreational and sports activities, better sleep quality, a healthy diet, and lower medication and illicit drugs consumption. These key findings emphasize the promotion of healthy lifestyles and highlight the importance of positive mental health in promoting the health of higher education students.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Since the pandemic began in December 2019, SARS-Cov2 has accentuated the wide gap and disparities in socioeconomic and healthcare access at individual, community, country, and regional levels. More than two years into the current pandemic, up to three-fourths of the patients are reporting continued signs and symptoms beyond the acute phase of COVID-19, and Long COVID portends to be a major challenge in the future ahead. With a comprehensive overview of the literature, we found that most studies concerning long COVID came from high and upper-middle income countries, and people of low-income and lower-and-middle income regions and vulnerable groups with comorbid conditions have been neglected. Apart from the level of income, there is a significant geographical heterogeneity in investigating the Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC) or what we call now, long COVID. We believe that these recognizing health disparities is crucial from equity perspective and is the first step toward global health promotion.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Many low- and middle-income countries face challenges in attaining adequate levels of vaccination coverage, and the factors driving this under-coverage have not been completely elucidated. In this cross-sectional study, we investigated factors associated with vaccination coverage in Mopani District, Limpopo Province, South Africa. Between July and October 2017, we surveyed 317 caregivers (83% of whom were mothers) of seven-month-old infants in Mopani District about barriers faced when attaining vaccines and attitudes towards vaccination, and reviewed the infants’ documented vaccination history. Caregiver and child demographic data were collected shortly after birth. We described the coverage for vaccines that should be received by age seven months, according to South Africa’s Expanded Programme on Immunization schedule, and explored the relationship between coverage and caregiver characteristics, behavioral factors (e.g. attitudes towards vaccination), and structural factors (e.g. vaccination stock-outs at clinics). We found that caregivers reported positive attitudes towards vaccination, based on a seven-question survey of vaccination attitudes. Although coverage was high for most recommended vaccines, it was low for pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), with just 36% of children having received it by age seven months. This appears to have been due to PCV stock-outs at government clinics. For vaccines other than PCV, children were more likely to be up-to-date on vaccinations if a community health worker (CHW) had visited their home in the past month (adjusted odds ratio (OR) 1.24, confidence interval (CI) (1.10–1.41); p

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Resumen:Introducción. La captura corporativa es el proceso en el que las decisiones políticas responden a un interés particular de carácter privado, en detrimento del interés público. La industria del cannabis ha desarrollado estrategias de captura de políticas y de difusión de fake news (noticias falsas) con el objeto de fomentar una visión del cannabis como sustancia inocua e, incluso, sanadora de enfermedades, promoviendo así una buena imagen de esta sustancia, de las corporaciones y consumidores, presionando para su legalización. Objetivos. (1) Analizar las estrategias de difusión de mensajes y fake news promotoras del cultivo, consumo y regulación del cannabis a través de distintos canales, y (2) explorar el posicionamiento frente al debate legislativo sobre esta sustancia en una muestra de estudiantes universitarios consumidores de cannabis. Metodología. (1) Estudio de carácter exploratorio para identificar y analizar las estrategias de la industria y, (2) estudio no probabilístico con muestreo por conveniencia mediante encuesta telemática difundida entre estudiantes de 11 universidades españolas (439 participantes). Resultados y conclusiones. La promoción del cultivo y del consumo de cannabis, relativizando sus efectos perjudiciales y presentándolo como una sustancia medicinal, aparece en las distintas estrategias utilizadas por la industria para difundir una imagen positiva del cannabis y de los consumidores. Estos mensajes tienen correspondencia con el posicionamiento de los consumidores, de los que el 82.6 % apoya alguna forma de regulación del cannabis.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Survey research is important for understanding health and improving practice among health professions. However, survey research can have drawbacks, such as overuse and excessively lengthy questionnaires that burden respondents. These issues lead to poor response rates and incomplete questionnaires. Low and incomplete response rates result in missing data and reduced sample size, damaging the value, usability and generalizability of the information collected. To address issues related to response rates and improve health research, shorter surveys are recommended because they impose less of a burden on respondents and are useful with larger populations. Health-related surveys also often focus on the factors leading to ill health without dedicating equal attention to factors supporting positive health. This study developed and tested a short form (SF) of the validated Salutogenic Wellness Promotion Scale (SWPS), which measures causes of health (rather than causes of disease), using responses from 2052 college students. The participants answered questions about their demographics and completed the SWPS and a perceived health assessment. Statistical tests demonstrated the SWPS-SF had significant relationships with the full SWPS, health status, and Grade Point Average (GPA). Statistical tests were also used to establish cutoff scores that had a high true positive and low false negative rate. These cutoff scores demonstrated a relationship of higher performance and better health. These promising results suggest this short test can provide valid information without burdening the respondents.
      Authors recommend additional tests be completed to validate the SWPS-SF.

      Objective:To evaluate the association of conditional cash transfer policies to mitigate the food insecurity (FI) among families living in poverty during the COVID-19 pandemic in Ceará, Brazil.Methods:An analytical cross-sectional study was carried out through telephone contact during the period of May–July 2021, during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ceará. Families in a situation of high social and economic vulnerability participated in this study (monthly per capita income of less than US$16.50). FI was assessed using the EBIA, a Brazilian validated questionnaire. The participation of families in government programs and public policies was also investigated. Logistic regression models were used to assess the association of the several factors assessed with food insecurity.Results:The prevalence of any food insecurity in this sample was 89.1% (95% Confidence interval (95% CI: 86.2 – 92.1) and of severe food insecurity, 30.3% (95% CI: 26.0 – 34.6). The Mais Infância card program, adopted as a cash transfer supplement in the state of Ceará, was significantly associated with food insecurity (OR 4.2 (95% CI: 1.7 – 10.2), with a p-value of 0.002. In addition, families affected by job losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic presented higher odds of FI.Conclusions:In this study, 89% of evaluated families presented food insecurity. Conditional cash transfer programs were associated with FI. We highlight the need for policies and interventions to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on food insecurity. Such policies can adopt appropriate criteria for defining the participants, as well as connect the participants to an appropriate set of broader social protection measures.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Studies have shown that COVID-19 has had a worldwide psychological impact. Confinement due to COVID-19 has had important repercussions on the mental health of the general population, with high levels of stress, anxiety, depressive symptoms, post-traumatic stress disorder, and so forth. Similarly, important labor, economic and social changes taking place are affecting people’s well-being. The objective of this study was to analyze the repercussions of perceived threat from COVID-19 on the mental health of the population, and to evaluate the mediating role of perceived economic impact. The participants were 1160 adult residents of Spain aged 18 to 82, 69.9% of whom were women. A sociodemographic questionnaire, the Questionnaire on Perception of Threat from COVID-19 and the General Health Questionnaire were administered. Perceived threat had a positive direct effect on all four health dimensions analyzed. Among the indirect effects, the perceived economic impact of COVID-19 mediated in the relationship between perceived threat and each of the health dimensions. The results of this study have demonstrated the need to promote joint action promoting public mental health to minimize the psychological repercussions of new outbreaks.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this work was to design some tools and a procedure for performing the Health Impact Assessment of municipal policies. A working group made up of municipal and public health specialists from the Valencian Community (Spain) was set up. After reviewing the tools used in other contexts, the Fem Salut' questionnaire for the simplified Health Impact Assessment of regional policies was adapted for use at the local level. A pilot study was carried out in six municipalities and local initiatives promoted by different sectors were analysed. Two workshops were held per municipality (with specialists and with citizens) and participatory techniques were used to identify the possible impacts on the social determinants of health, the population groups more particularly affected and the proposals for improvement. The feasibility of the methodology and the difficulties involved in carrying it out were discussed. A procedure was defined for the Health Impact Assessment of local initiatives in six steps: Describe (the municipality and the project), Extract (screening phase), Co-produce (participatory workshops), Integrate (the scientific evidence with the qualitative information obtained), Disseminate (to politicians, specialists and community) and Evaluate (direct and indirect results) (DECIDE). A guide was developed to facilitate its application at the local level along with two complementary tools (a questionnaire and worksheets). The technical group rated the process as simple and flexible, as well as being easy to adapt to the characteristics of the municipality and project. In addition to the cross-sectoral approach, the incorporation of citizen participation in the process is an important added value.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Climate change and environmental degradation caused by human activities are having an irrefutable impact on human health, particularly mental health. People working in the environment sector are confronted with these impacts daily. This exploratory study was conducted as a response to concern in the sector about rising levels of worry and distress, and a need for organizational knowledge about effective workplace mental health strategies. Using evidenced-based frameworks for workplace mental health and wellbeing, the study focused on the relationship between climate change, environmental degradation and mental health issues for this sector. This Australian-based exploratory qualitative study was guided by participatory research approaches. Maximum variation and criterion sampling strategies were applied to engage environmental sector senior managers (n = 8) in individual/paired interviews, followed by online focus group sessions with frontline employees (n = 9). Qualitative thematic analysis techniques were used in an iterative process, combining inductive and deductive strategies. Data was triangulated and interpretation was finalized with reference to literature and a workplace mental health promotion framework. Interview data provided new perspectives on the interconnectivity between risk and protective factors for mental health. Workers were motivated by commitment and values to continue their work despite experiencing increasing levels of trauma, ecological grief, and stress due to overwork and ecological and climate change crises. The findings highlight the need for integrated health promotion approaches that acknowledge the complex interactions between risk and supportive factors that influence mental health in this sector.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Background:The COVID-19 pandemic led Malaysia to introduce movement control orders (MCOs). While MCOs were intended to slow the spread of COVID-19, the effects of such measures on the noncommunicable disease (NCD) risk factors have not been fully explored. This exploratory study aimed to understand the effect of the MCO on the eating habits and physical activity levels of the urban poor in Malaysia as well as potential health promotion interventions during the COVID-19 pandemic.Methods:This rapid assessment used a mixed-method approach in three low-cost public flats in Kuala Lumpur targeting the B40, which is the bottom 40% of the economic spectrum. A total of 95 community members participated in a quantitative phone survey, while 21 respondents participated in a qualitative phone survey, including 12 community members and nine community health volunteers (CHVs).Results:The movement restriction imposed during the MCO significantly reduced the frequency and duration of respondents’ physical activity. At the same time, respondents reported significantly increased consumption of home-cooked meals. More than half of respondents reduced their consumption of packaged snack foods (53.7%), street desserts (54.7%), fast food (50.5%), soft drinks (50.5%), and 3-in-1 or instant drinks (50.5%) due to limited access during the MCO. B40 communities were receptive to potential interventions to encourage healthier eating and physical activity leveraging digital approaches under the ‘new normal’. Reported concerns included internet accessibility and affordability, functionality, and digital literacy.Conclusion:The COVID-19 pandemic requires innovation to address diseases and risk factors at the community level. While movement restrictions reduced physical activity, they created opportunities for low-income individuals to have greater control over their diet, enabling them to adopt healthier eating habits. Lifestyle changes experienced by vulnerable populations provide an opportunity for creative and technology-enabled interventions to promote healthy eating and exercise.

      Objective:This study aimed to explore physiotherapists’ perceptions in Saudi Arabia about their understanding and role in health promotion through lifestyle behaviours and risk factors assessment and management of patients with musculoskeletal pain and disabilities.Study design:Qualitative study.Method:One-to-one interviews with 12 physiotherapists (six females; mean age 34.5 ± 8) within a constructivist framework. Interviews were recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analysed using a thematic analysis approach.Result:Three themes were identified: (1) the physiotherapists’ awareness and knowledge of health promotion; (2) current practice of physiotherapists to implementing health promotion practice; and (3) the physiotherapists’ perceived barriers to implementing health promotion practice. Participants generally perceived health promotion to be within their scope of practice. However, their understanding and approaches to deliver this practice were varied and non-standardised. Some barriers to routine engagement in health promotion were identified, including time constraints, the beliefs of healthcare practitioners, and limited education and training.Conclusion:This study highlighted that physiotherapists acknowledged the role of health promotion in their practice. However, there were different explanations of the concept and it was informally practised.

      Childhood and adolescence are the periods in which children shape their character and behavior. This is also the period for children to adopt good health behaviors and to gain health knowledge- to gain health literacy (HL). Several factors play an important role in this. Among them are the person’s characteristics, family and social environment, literacy in general, cultural influences, and technological advances. The present study reviews the recent scientific evidence on the role that the family structure plays in HL in children and adolescents. A literature search was performed, until July 2019, in PubMed and Scopus. Appropriate keywords, related to HL and family structure, were used. Titles and abstracts were screened independently, and full-text manuscripts meeting inclusion criteria were extracted. Ten studies were included in this literature review. Several aspects of family structure (e.g., marital status, members of family, parental educational level, etc.) seemed to play a positive role in children’s HL status in the sense that children improve their HL when raised in families whose members have better HL. Although there is good evidence that HL positively affects children’s and adolescents’ health behavior, the role of family structure in children’s HL has not been well studied and understood.

      Background:Counseling is one of the ways to improve the quantity and quality of breastfeeding. The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of couple-centered counseling on fathers’ attitudes and mothers’ self-efficacy towards breastfeeding.Methods:This randomized controlled trial study was conducted on 60 primigravida pregnant women and their spouses who were randomly selected among the pregnant women referred to the two maternity hospitals of Malayer City, a city in the province Hamadan in western Iran. Data collection tools included the demographic characteristics questionnaire, Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Questionnaire, and Iowa Infant Feeding Attitude Scale. The intervention was performed according to the principles of GATHER counseling (Greet, Ask, Tell, Help, Explain, and Return). Mothers’ self-efficacy and fathers’ attitudes toward breastfeeding were assessed before the intervention and 4 weeks after birth in both groups. Data were analyzed with SPSS version 23 software and using a significance level of p = 0.05.Results:The participants of the control and test groups were homogeneous in terms of demographic characteristics. The change in mothers’ breastfeeding self-efficacy score after intervention in the test group had a statistically significant difference compared to the control group (30.43 ± 2.53; 95%CI: 25.41,35.44), and the change in the score of fathers’ attitude towards breastfeeding had a statistically significant difference after the intervention in the test group compared to the control group (19.3 ± 2.05; 95%CI: −23.36, −15.23). In the test group, the change in fathers’ attitude towards breastfeeding after the intervention was significant compared to before the intervention (30.36 ± 2.38; 95%CI: 25.43, 35.25).Conclusions:Appropriate counseling programs can change fathers’ attitudes toward breastfeeding and increase mothers’ breastfeeding self-efficacy, so couples’ presence in breastfeeding counseling is recommended.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      The increase in information technologies has made it easy to access much health information online. In this context, e-health literacy emerges as a skill for acquiring health information. Obtaining health information through information technology for health promotion requires e-health literacy. The aim of this study was to examine the e-health literacy and the health-promoting behaviors of Turkish hospital nurses directly involved in patient care. This descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out with 451 nurses working in two large training and research hospitals in Izmir between June and August 2019. Data were collected using the Turkish version of the Healthy Lifestyle Behavior Scale II and the Turkish version of the e-Health Literacy Scale. Descriptive statistics and multiple linear regression analysis were used for data analysis. Nurses were found to have moderate levels of healthy lifestyle behaviors (130.56 ± 21.90) and e-health literacy (29.87 ± 5.39). There was significant relationship between the e-health literacy levels of the nurses and their overall health-promoting behaviors (R = .349; F = 12,381; p = 0.013), health responsibility (R = .326; F = 10,567; p = 0.014), spiritual development (R = .242; F = 5.276; p = 0.001) and interpersonal relations (R = .343; F = 9.896; p = 0.001) scores. The results of this study showed that the development of strategies to improve the e-health literacy of nurses may contribute to the maintenance of health-promoting behaviors of both nurses and their patients.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      University students globally are reportedly living unhealthy lifestyles, challenging universities to develop physical activity (PA) and health promotion (HP) intervention strategies. The current study aimed to review global universities’ physical activity and health promotion activities to inform the PA and HP guidelines for Eswatini university students in the Sub-Saharan region. An electronic search was performed for review articles published between 1996 and 2021, using Cochrane, Google Scholar, PubMed Central, Scopus, and Medline Web of Science databases. The documents reviewed showed that some global universities under investigation follow the health promoting university (HPU) concept influenced by the Ottawa charter (1986). The review articles further showed that implementing the healthy university concept differs due to cultural and contextual differences from one institution to another. The reviews showed the main item areas as smoking control/alcohol and drug abuse, mental health, sexual health, physical activities, healthy eating habits/diet categorized under health promotion. The main PA activities were pedometer activity tracking, measurement of PA using validated questionnaires, sports, games, among other intervention activities. The HPU concept is thus a good starting point that can be promoted and spread to all other universities globally with different charters’ guidance, including the Ottawa charter and the Okanagan charter.

      Objectives:This study aimed to analyze the effect of interventions to increase stair use.Study Design:Systematic review and meta-analysis.Methods:An online search was conducted in January 2021 in five databases (Web of Science, SPORTDiscus, MedLine/PubMed, PsycINFO, and CINAHL). Experimental studies (randomized and non-randomized) conducted in adults, which provided stair use measures with pre- and post-intervention periods were included. A random-effect meta-analysis, as well as subgroup analyses were conducted to evaluate the quantitative effect of interventions on stair use.Results:Overall, 34 studies were included in qualitative analyses, and 15 in the meta-analysis. Most of the studies were conducted in Europe and private settings (e.g., office buildings). Overall, interventions increased stair use in adults (odds ratio (OR) 1.48; 95% confidence intervals (CI) 1.38–1.58; I2 = 99.6%). Subgroup analyses showed that interventions increased stair use regardless of the continent and observer type (manual or electronic). However, different settings (shopping malls and office buildings), as well as studies (time of intervention) and intervention characteristics (sign size and location, message characters) were associated with increased stair use.Conclusions:Different interventions can increase stair use in several continents and settings. Sign and message characteristics should be considered when designing interventions or policies to promote physical activity by increasing stair use.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      In New Zealand, mental health issues have created a ‘silent epidemic’ with diverse consequences in mental health outcomes. Poor mental health state along with inequities to access services are persistent. Key areas of mental health promotion in New Zealand that require constant attention are appropriate policymaking, reaching out to all communities, interventions at the individual level, and the complexity of the mental health system. This commentary evaluates the inadequacies faced by the public in accessing mental health services and the directions to improve in the future. It also reviews the New Zealand government’s ‘Like Mind, Like Mine’ program, aiming to provide socially inclusive services to people to live a life free from mental health-related stigma or discrimination.

      Objetivo:describir los elementos que caracterizan los modelos de atención a partir de las trayectorias del padecimiento de personas con factores de riesgo para Enfermedades Crónicas No Transmisibles (ECNT) que asistieron a tres centros de salud de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires.Material y métodos:estudio de carácter cualitativo y exploratorio. Se realizaron entrevistas semiestructuradas basadas en el modelo de Trayectoria del Padecimiento Crónico. Estas estuvieron dirigidas a 15 personas que participaron en tratamientos ofrecidos en tres centros de salud de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires. Se analizaron los datos obtenidos para describir los modelos de atención utilizados por las personas.Resultadoslas trayectorias del padecimiento evidenciaron la existencia de dos grandes modelos de atención que reflejan las tensiones propias del sistema de salud. Por un lado, un modelo de atención tradicional que reproduce una lógica curativa y biologicista de la salud, cuyo abordaje individualista ejerce presión sobre las personas, dificultando la continuidad del tratamiento. Y por el otro, un modelo de atención integral, que incluye una perspectiva preventivo-promocional y entiende las dimensiones biopsicosociales como constitutivas de la salud. Este último incorpora la ayuda mutua para generar compromiso y participación en las personas para la gestión de su padecimiento.Conclusiones:el compromiso y la ayuda mutua se identificaron como facilitadores para la realización de acciones de cuidado de la salud. Se destaca que reflexionar sobre las tensiones de los diferentes modelos de atención de las ECNT y sus efectos subjetivos en las personas permite repensar las estrategias para su abordaje.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Las intervenciones centradas en cambios de conducta, sumadas a la escasa evidencia de mapeo y dinamización de activos en Universidades Promotoras de Salud (UPS), hacen necesario potenciar enfoques integrales y sistémicos que contribuyan al bienestar y empoderamiento de sus integrantes. El objetivo de este artículo es explorar propuestas de acción que contribuyan a fortalecer activos en una comunidad universitaria chilena. Se desarrolló un estudio cualitativo con 72 hombres/77 mujeres (estudiantes, trabajadores, jubilados y exestudiantes). Se realizaron 48 entrevistas individuales y 14 grupos focales. Se efectuó un análisis de contenido utilizando el software QRS NVivo 12. Las propuestas identificadas se agruparon en: desarrollo de la participación e inclusión, promoción de la salud mental, mantenimiento y mejora de áreas verdes e infraestructura, y fortalecimiento del acceso a actividades deportivas, culturales y de extensión universitaria. Las mujeres valoraron la difusión de activos comunitarios y el cuidado de las personas y el entorno. Y los hombres, el fortalecimiento del capital social, la docencia y la transferencia de conocimiento. Las propuestas de acción tienen una orientación colectiva que favorece el vínculo de las personas con su entorno y el desarrollo del sentido de comunidad. Desde una perspectiva de género, se observa reproducción de roles y estereotipos arraigados en el sistema patriarcal. Esto constituye un desafío para potenciar las UPS en tanto política pública, considerando los principios de participación, justicia social y equidad.

      ResumenObjetivo:analizar los determinantes de la Inseguridad Alimentaria (IA) y su relación con las Prácticas de Alimentación (PA) y las Prácticas de Lactancia Materna (PLM) en el primer año de vida.Métodos:análisis de tipo cuantitativo sobre el binomio madre-hijo de una cohorte en México. Los datos de interés fueron el estado de seguridad alimentaria (SA), las PA y las PLM. Se desarrolló un modelo de regresión para evaluar determinantes asociados a la IA y un análisis de medias para determinar el impacto de la IA en las PA y las PLM.Resultados:el 54.1% de hogares presentó algún grado de IA. Las madres con pareja (OR = 0.25; p = 0.05) y con escolaridad superior (OR = 0.50; p = 0.04) tuvieron menor riesgo de padecer IA. En contraste, los hogares con mujeres mayores de 25 años estuvieron más expuestos a la IA (OR = 3.0; p = 0.00). Los hogares con IA introducen alimentos no recomendados como dulces, galletas o pastelitos (p = 0.00) y bebidas no lácteas azucaradas (p = 0.05) de forma prematura.Conclusiones:la IA requiere mayor atención por sus efectos en las PA y las PLM, las cuales son consideradas como factores asociados al desarrollo de mala nutrición.

      Introducción:la obesidad es un problema de salud pública a nivel mundial, cuya prevalencia ha aumentado sostenidamente en Latinoamerica. En Chile, el 75% de la población tiene sobrepeso u obesidad, siendo esta última más prevalente en mujeres (38%) que en hombres (30%). Si bien la percepción de apoyo social ha sido identificada como un factor protector para el desarrollo de la obesidad, el papel de la sintomatología depresiva y la alimentación emocional como mecanismos mediadores ha sido menos estudiado.Objetivo:determinar si el vínculo entre la percepción de apoyo social y el perímetro de cintura está mediado por la sintomatología depresiva y la alimentación emocional en una muestra de adultos chilenos estratificada por sexo.Métodos:trescientos veinticinco (n = 325) adultos chilenos de una región del sur de Chile fueron seleccionados mediante un muestreo no probabilístico intencional (55% mujeres, Medad mujeres = 57.21, Medad hombres = 58.34). Se midió el perímetro de cintura como indicador de obesidad y se utilizaron instrumentos de autorreporte para evaluar variables psicológicas, conductuales y sociodemográficas.Resultados:la alimentación emocional medió totalmente el vínculo entre sintomatología depresiva y perímetro de cintura tanto en hombres (β = 0.089, p = 0.042), como en mujeres (β = 0.086, p = 0.013). La percepción de apoyo social se vinculó indirecta y negativamente con el perímetro de cintura a través de una secuencia de mediación que incluyó sintomatología depresiva y alimentación emocional solo en mujeres (β = −0.043, p = 0.015).Conclusiones:la alimentación emocional es una variable a través de la cual la sintomatología depresiva se vincula con obesidad tanto en hombres como mujeres. Los hallazgos avalan el papel protector de la percepción de apoyo social en obesidad en mujeres, lo que puede orientar el desarrollo de estrategias para disminuir las altas tasas de obesidad en población chilena adulta.

      Health impact of the total ban on advertising of tobacco productsThe objective was to estimate the health impact of the total ban on advertising of tobacco products in terms of avoided cardiovascular events in those over 35 years of age in Argentina.The Cardiovascular Disease Policy Model (CVDPM) was used, which is a Markov simulation model used to represent and project mortality and morbidity due to cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the population aged 35 or over. It constitutes a demographic-epidemiological model, which represents the population between 35 and 95 years of age and uses a logistic regression model based on the Framingham equation to estimate the annual incidence of cardiovascular disease. We assumed that implementing a complete ban on the advertising of tobacco products would lead to a 9% reduction in tobacco consumption.The complete ban on advertising could prevent 15,164 deaths over a period of 10 years, of which 2610 would be the result of coronary heart disease and 747 due to stroke. These reductions would mean an annual decrease of 0.46% of total deaths, 0.60% of deaths from coronary heart disease and 0.33% in deaths from stroke. In addition, during the same period, it would avoid 6630 acute myocardial infarctions and 2851 strokes (reductions of 1.35% and 0.40%, respectively).We hope that these findings might contribute to the strengthening of sanitary tobacco control policies in Argentina based on the remarkable benefits of banning the advertising of tobacco products in full and in line with current global recommendations.
