Health Education partners with Global Health & Education webinar series

The journal Health Education by Emerald Publishing is the official journal of the Global Health & Education webinar series and aims to support the UNESCO Chairs mission of sharing knowledge to support the global community.

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.

Didier Jourdan – Chairholder of the UNESCO Chair – and Goof Buijs – manager of the UNESCO Chair – have been members of the editorial board of Health Education for many years. Both Emerald and the UNESCO Chair have much in common when it comes to knowledge production and sharing in the field of health. Subsequently, the creation of the ‘Global Health and Education webinar series’ in Spring 2020 has provided an exciting foundation for our partnership.
