Excerpt
PREFACE Each year the WHO Executive Board reviews in detail one of the Organization's programme activities. The subject chosen for 1974 was health education, and the study reproduced in these pages, which was prepared in WHO, served as a basis for the review of the Organization's programme over twenty-five years. Particular attention was paid in this study to the difficulties that health workers encounter in the field in introducing health education into their activities, as well as to the efforts they are making to improve the utilization of health services and increase community participation in the preservation of health. The study highlights certain aims, concepts, and guiding principles, and gives examples of the contribution of health education to health programmes supported by WHO in Member States. It makes special mention of WHO collaboration with the International Union for Health Education since its inception in 1951 and particularly since 1955, when the Union entered into official relations with WHO. Health education did not, of course, originate with WHO, It has had its genesis, under other names, in many cultures. The Organization is indebted to countless pioneers who have contributed to concepts, knowledge, practices and experiences which typify the best of health education. Likewise, WHO is appreciative of the investment which individuals, other international agencies, governmental and nongovernmental organizations have made in its evolving efforts, through health education, to beckon people into new responsibilities for their own health and wellbeing and for reaching out to the health and wellbeing of their own and of the world community.
