[Symposium leadership presentation] Objectives: The purpose of the study is to describe current status of the health promotion programs (HPP) delivered in rural Korea through public sector. Methods: We narrowed our subjects to the programs delivered by the Public Health Centers (PHC), Agricultural Technology Centers (ATC), National Health Insurance Corporation (NHIC), and Social Welfare Centers (SWC) through a screening survey. A questionnaire was sent to each center with the selected HPP: 105 from PHCs, 27 from ATCs, 24 from NHICs, and 34 from SWCs and telephone survey was conducted during Aug. 7-16, 2006. Our interests were 1) the level of HPP objectives, 2) difficulties in running the HPP, and 3) most needed programs. Results: PHC programs were more focused on the behavioral modification (29.5%) and health education (28.4%), while ATC were focused on the empowerment (31.6%) and health education (23.7%). NHIC were more focused on the behavioral modification (37.5%) and the medicine/preventive medicine level (31.3%). The SWC had objective levels evenly distributed among medical/preventive medicine (24.0%), health education (24.0%), behavioral modification (20.0%) and empowerment (24.0%). Of those who reported any difficulty, PHC named gathering subjects (20.6%) and overloading of the workers (15.5%), ATC named budget (19.6%) and shortage of skillful workers(15.2). NHIC's primary difficulty was the budget (40.6%), and SWC's difficulties were budget(19.3%) and shortage of the skillful workers (17.5%). HPPs the respondents thought most needed were different by the center they belong. PHC named smoking cessation (23.2%) and chronic disease management (CDM, 23.2%) as the most needed programs while CDM (46.2%), exercise (15.4%), safety (15.4%) for ATC, exercise (33.3%) and CDM (22.2%) for NHIC, and exercise (28.1%), CDM (25.0%) and mental health (21.9%) for SWC. Conclusion: We conclude that we need more programs at empowerment and social/environmental change level in rural Korea. The PHC will have to develop a strategy to gather the subjects for the program. We need to train more skillful workers who can actually run HPPs in rural Korea.
