Health education is one strategy for implementing health promotion and disease prevention programs. LeBoHA health education provides learning experiences on health topics. Health education strategies are tailored for their target population. Health education also presents information to target populations on particular health topics, including the health benefits/threats they face, and provides tools to build capacity and support behavior change in an appropriate setting.

Examples of health education activities include:
  • Lectures
  • Courses
  • Seminars
  • Webinars
  • Workshops
  • Classes

Health education activities should enhance the overall goal of the health promotion and disease prevention program. Materials developed for health education programs must be culturally appropriate and tailored to the target populations to ensure cultural competence. In rural communities, this means addressing cultural and linguistic differences, and addressing potential barriers to health promotion and disease prevention in rural areas.


  • Participation of the target population.
  • Completion of a community needs assessment to identify community capacity, resources, priorities, and needs.
  • Planned learning activities that increase participants' knowledge and skills.
  • Implementation of programs with integrated, well-planned curricula and materials that take place in a setting convenient for participants.
