What is health promotion?
"...a way of providing information to individuals, groups, communities and the wider population, in order to raise their health status and improve their health and well-being."
Most of the large-scale health promotion work is carried out by government health promotion agencies. They use different media to put health messages across.
There are many different health campaigns and you will probably have seen evidence of some in newspapers and magazines, on television or in booklets and posters.
You may come cross them at leisure centres, health food shops, school/college, homes for the elderly, nursery, or youth clubs.
These campaigns can be aimed at everyone or specific age groups/genders.
Look on the DoH website (http://campaigns.dh.gov.uk)
Choose one of the PHE Campaigns to look at.
What area of health is it promoting? What does it encourage people to do/not do? Who is it aimed at? Do you think it is effective? Why/why not?
Can we think of any other health promotion campaigns?
What is being promoted?
Why is it being promoted?

Was the promotion effective?
Who is the target audience?
Who is behind the promotion? Why?
Choose a health issue to promote.
Do some research!
Create a poster and a leaflet to inform people about the health issue you have chosen and to promote better health.
Think about: who it is aimed at, where you would put the poster and leaflet, what people will learn from your poster and leaflet.
You will be continuously working on your campaign project. You will need to decide what topic you will be using in your campaign project. Keep an eye out for how other health issues are being promoted and methods that you can use in your own campaign. Research other campaigns (check the Department of Health website) to give you an idea of what a campaign involves.
