UNIRéS is a national association dedicated to developing health education training and research: a global approach to health education aiming to promote civic rights, educational success and the development of psychosocial skills in children and adolescents (see the Ottawa Charter principles), with a view to reducing social inequalities in health.

UNIRéS, made up of a network of approximately sixty members (trainers, lecturers and academic staff) engaged in the field of health promotion and facilitated by a team of five employees, develops its efforts around 3 main areas:

  • Training: initial and ongoing training (training of trainers, research training, tool design training, project support training…)
  • Pooling resources: provision of various resources and tools (a distance-learning platform, the Profédus tool, videos illustrating the realities of health education in the child or adolescent’s life etc.).
  • The research division aims to develop, share and promote research in ES, in close coordination with the training dynamic promoted by the Network.

Many UNIRéS efforts reflect its international dimension: the biennial international symposium, involvement in international networks (IUHPE, SHE Network), support and expertise in international projects in the field of research and training etc.
