Te Tiriti o Waitangi-Based Practice in Health Promotion

In January 2018 we launched our first E-book - Tiriti-based practice in health promotion - at the Health Promotion Forum in Auckland. Dr Heather Came led the development of this resource which was based on interviews with senior health promotion practitioners and insights from the authors. It attempted to reengage with the legacy of Dr Irihapeti Ramsden and refresh some of the thinking from Treaty Understanding of Hauora in Aotearoa-New Zealand (Health Promotion Forum 1999).




Racism: Science & Tools for the Public Health Professional

This important publication builds on the racial health equity work that public health advocates and others have been doing for decades. This book, which targets racism directly and includes the word squarely in its title, marks an important shift in the field's antiracism struggle for racial health equity. It is intended for use in a wide range of settings including health departments, schools, and in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors where public health professionals work. It will also benefit students still in training and will also serve as a practical reference text for courses and workshops. In this way, this book anticipates acting as a bridge connecting public health professionals, students, community members, as well as policymakers.
