Research capacity building workshop


24–26 July 2017


Aetas Lumpini Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand


This 3-day workshop aimed to share knowledge and experiences on health promotion research, and exchange best practices and lessons learned. The goal of AUN–HPN members is to generate evidence to support the movement towards healthy universities and healthy societies in all areas and levels in ASEAN countries.

Participants from member universities were invited to share their knowledge and experiences, and divided into three groups to discuss the concept of health promotion research, methodology and methods, led by instructors from AUN–HPN universities and Thai Health Promotion Foundation. Participants discussed economic evaluation on health promotion research methods, and collaboration and a road map for health promotion research in ASEAN countries.

The objectives included building the capacity of researchers in AUN–HPN members to conduct studies on health promotion, searching for priority research areas for health promotion in ASEAN, and to strengthen the research community network on health promotion among AUN–HPN members.
