Plan REACH - Building a Health Promotion Capaiblity


World Health Organisation Definition:

Health promotion enables people to increase control over their own health. It covers a wide range of social and environmental interventions that are designed to benefit and protect individual people’s health and quality of life by addressing and preventing the root causes of ill health, not just focusing on treatment and cure.

Community capacity building (Australian Department of Health)

Community capacity building is an essential health promotion activity crucial to the achievement of the objectives of the Framework. Capacity building has been broadly defined as encompassing:

  • empowerment of individuals and groups within defined ‘communities’;

  • development of skills, knowledge, and confidence;

  • increased social connections and relationships;

  • responsive service delivery and policy based in community-identified needsand solutions;

  • audible community voices;

  • community involvement;

  • responsive and accountable decision makers;

  • resource mobilisation for communities in need; and

  • community acceptance of programs because they have been involved in development.

Capacity building for health promotion can occur with individuals, groups, organisations and communities and includes three core aspects: adequate infrastructure and resources in order to build capacity in individuals and communities, the establishment and maintenance of partnerships and networks are key to ensuring developed programs are sustainable and finally, organisations and communities must develop a ‘problem solving’ approach to health improvement strategies.
