About the journal

Health Education is a leading journal which reflects the best of modern thinking about health education.

It offers stimulating and incisive coverage of current debates, concerns, interventions, and initiatives, and provides a wealth of evidence, research, information, and ideas to inform and inspire those in both the theory and practice of health education. Health Education plays a crucial role in the development of a healthy, inclusive, and equitable social, psychological, and physical environment.

The journal reflects the radical changes which have taken place in the field in recent years, and modern approaches now use an empowering, multi-dimensional, multi-professional approach which relates to all settings, organizations, and parts and levels of society, including schools, colleges, the community, and the workplace.
