The Curitiba Statement aspires to breathe a spirit of local and global commitment to democracy, equity, justice and assurance of social rights and health for all in an inclusive and sustainable world. It represents the voice of the researchers, practitioners, social movement members and policymakers who participated in the 22nd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion, in Curitiba, Brazil, in May 2016. The Curitiba Statement articulates recommendations of conference participants in relation to how we can improve people’s lives by strengthening health promotion and improving equity where we live and work in our cities and countries.
