Healthy People 2010 sets elimination of health disparities as a key goal for the United States (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2000). For many of the diseases and conditions targeted in HP 2010, health promotion messages can play an essential role in reducing risk and n decreasing debilitating effects and death rates among diverse populations. While a large body of literature on the general theory and methods of developing health promotion messages and materials exists, a paucity of its content addresses specific approaches effective with diverse populations. The purpose of this document is to provide guidance on how to assure that health promotion materials reflect the principles and practices of cultural and linguistic competence. (Authors)
