Purpose To demonstrate understanding how two approaches we use in health promotion – ‘settings for health’ and ‘health in all policies’ – can be used as part of an integrated health promotion strategy, and to consider challenges to applying them in practice. Topic How can the ‘settings for health’ and ‘health in all policies’ approaches be used to achieve a health goal in a population sub-group? Approaching the task 1. Choose a population group. Several population groups in Australia have poorer health than the general population, including: • Indigenous Australians • people living in rural and remote areas • veterans • people living in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities • prisoners • people born overseas. Refer to: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. (2016). Priority population groups: www.aihw.gov.au/reports-statistics/population-groups From among these population groups, select one of most interest to you and most relevant to your professional work. As health promotion action often needs to be tailored to specific contexts and population groups, focus on a sub-population within the broader population group you choose. For example, female prisoners in Victorian jails, or South Sudanese teenage refugees who have recently arrived in Melbourne, or older Indigenous Australians living in Gippsland. 2. Identify a health goal. Then, identify a health goal that would be relevant to your chosen sub-population – for example, a health goal might be for the selected subpopulation to • meet the national recommendations for physical activity; • remain or become non-smokers; • develop strong social connections with peers; or • optimally manage an existing chronic condition (mental or physical).
