SETTING AN ETHICAL AGENDA FOR HEALTH PROMOTION 2007
18-20 September 2007, Ghent, Belgium
The promotion of health, both as a methodology and as a policy, has always been partly an ethical project. The past few decades the policy makersí attention has not only been attracted by morbidity and mortality data, but just as much by health inequalities. Therefore, reducing health disparities and assuring people the right to the highest attainable standard of health is nowadays considered as an absolute priority by local, national and supranational institutions.
Despite the moral motivations the domain of health promotion practice is littered with ethical pitfalls.
This conference attempts to bring together scholars from both the fields of ethics and health promotion in order to identify and to examine the ethical issues that are at stake within the context of health promotion.
