1st Conference of the Brazilian Association for Research on Prevention and Health Promotion
The 1st Conference of the Brazilian Association for Research on Prevention and Health Promotion (BRAPEP - Associação Brasileira de Pesquisa em Prevenção e Promoção da Saúde) will be held in Brasilia, DF, Brazil, August 5–7 2018, in partnership with the University of Brasilia (UnB). The event seeks to put together researchers, students, professionals, and public managers who handle the production and use of knowledge for the promotion of health and prevention of health issues based on the principles of universality, completeness of CARE[U1], interdisciplinarity, and reductions of inequities in health care.
These will be approached using quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods from diverse theoretical schools and areas of knowledge that intersect with health care. Various phenomena, such as violence, sexual, and reproductive health, mental health, and alcohol and other drugs for groups in all stages of life, from pregnancy to aging will be discussed. Of interest are multi-context and multi-level analyses, including the health of individuals, families, organizations, and communities and their interactions with culture and public policies.
