Key Players in Health Promotion Policy in the Northern Part of the Western Pacific

  • Toshitaka Nakahara


Key players in the health promotion policy in the northern part of the Western Pacific Region are usually the governments and their related nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). As NGOs the International Union for Health Promotion and Education and its branch in the northern part of the West Pacific (IUHPE/NPWP) are supportive of governmental work on health promotion. Nowadays health promotion is gradually linking with health, medical, and welfare services to act against lifestyle-related diseases in the middle-aged and elderly population from the viewpoint of prevention, early detection, and health guidance.
