Description

At the 10th Global Conference on Health Promotion late last year, the World Health Organization launched a new global movement to catalyse and support the concept of wellbeing societies. This heralds a paradigm shift, as it situates health promotion and disease prevention strategies within the broader rubric of wellbeing. The conference outcome statement, The Geneva Charter for Well-being, sets out the main principles of a wellbeing society and calls on health promotion to play a key role in promoting and supporting the wellbeing movement. This editorial explores the Charter's opportunities for public health at local and global levels, and looks at the way forward for the wellbeing agenda.
