Criteria for good practice in health promotion addressing social determinants

Des Kooperationsverbundes gesundheitliche Chancengleichheit

Titelbild Kriterien für gute Praxis der soziallagenbezogenen GF englisch
The Criteria for Good Practice in Health Promotion developed by the German Cooperation Network ‘Equity in Health’ offer a specialised framework for planning and implementing health promotion interventions addressing the social determinants of health. The term ‘interventions’ also includes ongoing services, projects, measures and special initiatives. This set of criteria for good practice consists of technical concepts. The good practice examples and criteria provided are intended to inspire stakeholders to initiate and intensify health promotion activities in their respective fields. Once the Criteria for Good Practice in Health Promotion have successfully provided an entry point to this topic, implementing them may be linked to further, process-oriented approaches to quality improvement (e.g. quintessenz). At the same time, the good practice approach can also support the application of more general quality development concepts to health promotion.
