The Bangkok Charter for Health Promotion in a Globalized World
An international document that builds on the Ottawa Charter is the Bangkok Charter for Health Promotion in a Globalised World developed in Bangkok on 11 August 2005.
The Bangkok Charter identifies actions, commitments and pledges required to address the determinants of health in a globalized world through health promotion.
The Charter affirms that policies and partnerships to empower communities, and to improve health and health equality, should be at the centre of global and national development. It complements and builds upon the values, principles and action strategies of health promotion established by the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and the recommendations of the subsequent global health promotion conferences which have been confirmed by Member States through the World Health Assembly.
