Health promotion strategic framework 2011 - 2015 [draft]

by Northern Territory Department of Health

Year 2011
City Darwin
Institution Northern Territory Department of Health


Currently a draft publication, the Health promotion strategic framework is a guiding document for health promotion in the Northern Territory (NT). It provides a broad definition and explains the value of health promotion, as well as clarifying and offering illustrative examples of health determinants and a continuum of health promotion practice. A glossary of terms is provided in line with one of the framework's aims, that is, to build an evidence-base for particular health promotion strategies.

The Health promotion strategic framework:

  • provides a structure for describing types of health promotion actions
  • enables a shared understanding and a consistent approach to the development and implementation of health promotion
  • provides guidance about embedding a health promotion approach into all planning processes, programs and service development.

Written for practitioners, researchers and policy-makers in the health sector and encouraged for those in other sectors, the framework is intended for use in conjunction with health promotion audit tools and other health promotion resources available in the NT, such as the Public health bush books and the Quality improvement program planning system (QIPPS). Consultation is currently being sought on the draft until 24 February 2012.
