The work done by the Chair of Health Promotion to date has positioned it as one of the most dynamic bodies in its field and a leading centre for training, research, dissemination and knowledge transfer relating to health promotion. The Chair is currently working on the challenges of offering high quality training, taking part in strategic alliances with universities, bodies, institutions and healthcare centres, developing research programmes, incorporating information technologies and developing bonds with society. The Chair places special emphasis on its international work, a means for guaranteeing the recognition of scientific excellence, the pooling of abilities and its own profile and positioning. The Chair, as an entity integrated into society, emphasises the fact that health is a matter that affects everybody and therefore its promotion needs widespread general support and involvement. This task always requires a positive approach rather than a contrast with illness, or as A. Antonovsky said, “we have to look at what generates health rather than the limitations and causes of illnesses".
