Description

What is HEP?

Health Education and Promotion is a profession focusing on the behaviors, systems, environments, and policies affecting health at a variety of levels. This profession requires intensive specialized training encompassing the biological, environmental, psychological, social, physical, and medical sciences. It also involves the development of individual, group, institutional, community, and systemic strategies to improve health knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors, which empowers people to take more control over their personal, community, and environmental health and well-being.

Our strategies include: individual and group education, training and counseling, audio-visual and computerized educational materials development, community development, social action and planning, advocacy, and coalition building.
