Director of the University of Toronto's Centre for Health Promotion, Iriving Rootman has pursued a brilliant career in Canada's civil service during which he was instrumental in placing health promotion at the centre of social and health policies of the Canadian Governent.
From his current position he contributes to the consolidation of the Movement in Favor of Health promotion in Canada and internationally as president of the WHO Working group on Evaluation in Health Promotion.
Irving Rootman believes that evaluation is an inherently political enterprise.
He insists on the necessity for the health promotion community to move towards a better intergration of the result-orientation culture and the health promotion culture, this integration is a condition for survival.
Those who believe in health promotion need to validate their beliefs and to persuade those who control finances that their vision is well-founded.
Dr Rootman then looks at the conditions that make the integration of evaluation with the practice of health promotion possible.
These conditions are theoretical, methodological, political and ethical in nature.
