Cui said that health promotion is an important part of health and family planning work, which is listed as a preferred strategy for improving people’s health by the WHO. China has always paid great attention to health promotion work. In recent years, governments at all levels have carried out a series of themed publicity and education, social mobilization and special events to prevent diseases and promote public health.

She stressed that health educators should strengthen health promotion ideas in their work. They should make “Health Literacy Promotion” a famous brand and work to promote China Health Travel. Tobacco control should become a breakthrough in the health intervention model. Health educators should also strengthen personnel training, promote policy innovation to suit the needs of healthcare reform and the development of the health service industry, and use new media and technology to spread health knowledge and ideas.
