Short description of Network

  • HPH Network of the Republic of Korea was established in January 2011 in support of the Steering Committee, National Medical Center.

  • HPH Korea is involved with diverse medical institutions and has expanded to 30 members including regional public hospitals (RPHs), university-affiliated hospitals, and various health service agencies.  

  • HPH Korea holds regular meetings, HPH conferences and schools, and sports events as a part of a collaborative endeavor to spread health promotion programs and HPH.


Three main achievements

As the link between global movements and local actions is pivotal, HPH Korea has played important roles in the following:

  • Setting a research agenda: HPH workshops and HPH schools

  • HPH advocacy: HPH casebook

  • HPH workplace health promotion: sports events


Three major obstacles

In order to ensure sustainability of the HPH network, support from the government, adequate funding, and applicable health-promtion strategies are essential. However, challengs remain due to the following:

  • Insufficient government interest/support

  • Inadequate funding

  • Lack of a development strategy that tackles a number of risk factors in health


Our vision for the future

HPH Network of Korea will do the following:

  • Ensure national norms and standards to provide robust and reliable support for HPH

  • Build an HPH model that reflects the cultural characteristics of Korea through continuous HPH research and development

  • Implement coordinated action for HPH in alignment with IHPH
