      Authors: Hüseyin ERİŞ, Fatma KARASU, Duygu AYAR
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Individuals’ beliefs in conspiracy theories and anti-vaccination defense play a role in the rates of COVID-19 spread.Purpose:This study aims to determine the perception of trust in, and the perception of conspiracy theories regarding vaccines among those with COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and resistance in a province in Turkey.Methods:This study was conducted with 1244 individuals who agreed to participate in the study in the province with the lowest vaccination rate in Turkey. The ‘Personal Information Form’ and the ‘COVID-19 Vaccine Perception and Attitude Scale’ were used to collect data.Findings:Those who were resistant to vaccines had a low mean score on the Perception of Trust and a high mean score on the Perception of Conspiracy. The variable of conspiracy perception had a significantly negative and high effect on the perception of trust.Conclusion:The participants were highly resistant to COVID-19 vaccines. Their perception level of trust in COVID-19 vaccines was moderate and their perception level of conspiracy was high.

      Authors: Alejandro Alvarez Alvarez, Mara van Leeuwen Sierra, Emma Alvarez Faedo, José Antonio Cernuda Martínez
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Objetivo:comprobar la influencia de los conocimientos y los hábitos alimenticios en la sobrecarga ponderal según el ámbito de residencia (urbano o rural).Método:se administró un cuestionario a 451 personas, residentes en la zona básica de salud de Villaviciosa (Asturias, España), entre 35 y 65 años, distribuidas en zona rural y urbana, formulario compuesto por preguntas sobre datos sociodemográficos, hábitos y conocimientos nutricionales. Se calcularon frecuencias relativas (%) para las variables cualitativas, y medias aritméticas (desviaciones estándar) para las cuantitativas. Se empleó la correlación de Pearson para comprobar o descartar la relación entre la puntuación en el cuestionario de conocimientos sobre nutrición y el índice de masa corporal (IMC). Para estudiar la relación entre cada pregunta del cuestionario de hábitos y el ámbito de residencia se empleó la prueba chi-cuadrado. Para comparar las medias del IMC por ámbito se aplicó la prueba t para muestras independientes. Se realizaron regresiones logísticas para calcular las odds ratio (OR) entre la variable dependiente (sobrecarga ponderal) y las variables sociodemográficas.Resultados:la edad media de los encuestados fue de 49.96 años y el IMC promedio de 26.87 kg/m2, presentando sobrecarga ponderal el 57.6 % total. No leer las etiquetas nutricionales aumenta el riesgo de tener sobrecarga ponderal (OR = 2.2; p = 0.001); quienes consideran que comen en exceso muchas veces presentan mayor probabilidad de sobrecarga ponderal (OR = 8.6; p

      Authors: Alhelí Calderón-Villarreal, Urinda Alamo-Hernández, Brendan Terry, Nelly Salgado-de-Snyder
      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Long-term research has identified significant water contamination and associated poor health outcomes in the indigenous community of Alpuyeca, located in south-central Mexico. We set out to develop a popular education initiative in this community to improve water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) knowledge and practices. In order to avoid recreating hierarchical power dynamics in this vulnerable community, a participatory action research (PAR) design was used, wherein the community took leadership and facilitation roles in each stage of the research process. In qualitative interviews and design sessions, community members identified unsatisfied WaSH needs in households and community institutions and articulated a clear worldview of the spiritual role of water, which guided the development of a series of popular education-based workshops and discussions. The popular education initiative process was documented with a mixed methods framework, using before-and-after surveys, semi-structured interviews and participatory observation. Increases in knowledge and practices related to water purification, water consumption and hand hygiene were noted in the community. The community identified locally installed and managed ecotechnologies as a key opportunity for sustainable development, community participation and the adoption of water and sanitation systems, compatible with public imaginaries of the role of water.

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Among all road users, pedestrian behavior is most unpredictable, and our knowledge of pedestrian behavior and compliance in northern Iran is limited. The aim of the study was to determine the self-reporting behavior of pedestrians and related factors in northern Iran in 2021. This cross-sectional study’s research tool included demographic characteristics, social characteristics, and a pedestrian behavior questionnaire (PBS – 43 questions). Data collection was randomly performed in 30 different passages around Rasht (a city in the north of Iran). We used the Poisson regression model and statistical software STATA version 15 for data analysis. With increasing age, pedestrians showed better crossing behavior (p

      Abstract: Global Health Promotion, Ahead of Print.
      Objetivo:analizar las publicaciones de Alfabetización Sanitaria (AS) en relación con la pandemia de la COVID-19 en países de ingreso bajo, medio y medio-alto.Métodos:se realizó una revisión sistemática de literatura publicada en las bases de datos de PubMed, Scopus, Portal BVS y Europe PMC, entre el 2019 y el 2021, siguiendo las guías de Cochrane y PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses), y se escribió de acuerdo con los elementos de informe preferidos para revisiones sistemáticas. La calidad metodológica se comprobó utilizando Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool (MMAT), para evaluar críticamente la calidad de los estudios incluidos.Resultados:se revisaron 1397 artículos y tras la aplicación de criterios de elegibilidad se seleccionaron 92 estudios para el análisis. Se identificaron tres temas principales: dificultades y obstáculos, experiencias efectuadas sobre AS durante la pandemia y desafíos. Los determinantes sociales de la salud como educación, género, territorio y nivel socioeconómico obstaculizan la AS, además, otra de las dificultades es la ausencia en diversos países de planes, programas y guías de comunicación en salud. La infodemia fue una dificultad y un desafío en esta pandemia. Uno de los desafíos para la AS es la inequidad y pobreza. De las experiencias se encontraron mediciones de la AS en la población en general, en estudiantes y profesionales de la salud, además acciones de comunicación en salud y difusión de información para la prevención de la diseminación de la COVID-19 y para contrarrestar la infodemia. Conclusiones: las condiciones de vida de la población, así como el contexto sociocultural, económico y político de los países incluidos en esta revisión sistemática, influyen de manera decisiva en la AS de las personas.

      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

      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/ ] 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

      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.

      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.

      Authors: Juan Camilo Calderón Farfán, Diego Fernando Rosero Medina, Dolly Arias Torres
      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.
      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.
      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.

      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.
      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.

      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

      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.
      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.
      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.
      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.
