Nau Mai! Haere Mai! Welcome! 

Warm Greetings to you from all of us here at the Health Promotion Forum (HPF). 

Thank you for choosing to learn health promotion through our online courses. 

Health promotion skills enable you to work with peoples and communities to take greater control of their health and wellbeing.

Before you start, please take time to learn about the structure of our courses so that you will know how to make the most of it.

Any queries about these courses please contact Health Promotions Forum:


Our online courses are for your continuous professional development (CPD). If you are already working in the field of health promotion or public health, these courses will further enhance your knowledge and skills. The courses are also designed to enable those who are new to health promotion and public health to be able to learn new knowledge and skills.

Three Streams and Three Levels

There are three streams of courses with three levels in each stream. While all three streams are related, each stream focuses on a distinct form of health promotion knowledge and practice. 

Stream One is Mainstream Health Promotion (MSHP). It focuses on Western or European health promotion. Maori Health Promotion is the second stream, and it focuses on Maori Health Promotion (MHP). The third stream is Pacific Health Promotion which focuses on Pacific Health Promotion (PHP). It is envisaged that other streams may be included in the future. The level in each stream indicates the level of knowledge you can learn in each course – starting from an introductory and basic knowledge at level one to an advanced knowledge at level three.  At present, we only have level one courses in the three streams. We will advise you when courses at level two and level three will be added in future.

Topic: Pasifika Health Promotion 

This is the third stream of a three-part introductory course on Health Promotion. The other two are the Mainstream Health Promotion (MSHP) and Maori Health Promotion (MHP). The three streams are a reflection of the diverse cultural groups; it is recognising the unique perspectives and worldviews that shape the reality of these distinct groups and their response to life’s challenges and opportunities. .
