Abstract

"It is widely accepted nowadays that public health messages about prevention should be culturally sensitive, and this has been the case at least since 1986 when the World Health Organisation released its Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion. The PNG Department of Health agrees that health promotion messages should be culturally grounded, stating in its policy that: ‘All health promotion materials shall be research-based, field-tested and approved’ (Ministry of Health 2000b:19)."
