"Over the years the IUHPE quarterly journal Global Health Promotion has been a major source for insight into the state of the art of global health promotion practice. More recently the journal has taken on the task of representing the state of the art in health promotion. Through articles, discussions and particularly through the publication of Supplement issues Global Health Promotion has become the place to go for cutting edge insight into present day health promotion. It goes from strength to strength.” David V. McQueen, Associate Director for Global Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, United States; IUHPE President

Publishing in three international languages, papers that appeal to both researchers and practitioners, Global Health Promotion is a unique and essential tool for empowering the health promotion community world-wide.” Professor Louise Potvin, Department of social and preventive medicine, Montreal University, Canada

“I am a great admirer of the IUHPE journal, Global Health Promotion, which very effectively addresses the concerns on the growing challenge of non-communicable and lifestyle related health problems.” Alok Mukhopadhyay, President and CEO, Voluntary Health Association of India (VHAI)

I genuinely believe that Global Health Promotion is a technically sound publication, which has the potential to further improve and strengthen given the professional inputs it is currently receiving both on the administrative side and technical sides.
