Circle of Health – English
The Circle of Health© (1996), is both a dynamic framework for health promotion and a tangible tool. Constructed using the theoretical frameworks of the determinants of health, the Ottawa Charter, and the First Nations Medicine Wheel, the Circle of Health© has a wide range of applications. This tool is relevant to the community, health, justice, economic, business, and environmental issues which intersect with and influence individual and community well-being. It stimulates the user to search for good information, best practices, and creative solutions. Developed in Prince Edward Island, Canada, the Circle of Health© continues to gain popularity nationally and internationally. The Circle of Health Kit consists of a Circle of Health interactive tool, Learning Guide and Background Document. The Circle provides a picture of the components of health promotion at-a-glance. By moving the rings you can line up many possible interactions within and between the components. The Circle can help you to understand health promotion as a very dynamic process that involves many people and strategies.
The Circle is also available for purchase in French and has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese and Serbian.
