This work is aimed to the study of the characteristics of the publications of health education which have been released in Spain for the last 20 years. Different scientific data have been consulted, analysing in each work the type of intervention, the topic dealt with, the methodology and their suitability to the criteria established by the World Health Organization (WHO) The results state: a) from the 245 articles studied, only four of them fulfilled the criteria established by The WHO for the educative institutions which promote health; b) The interventions are mainly focused on prevention rather than on health promotion, and c) the university institutions have a more prominent role than the no university ones to spread health promotion.
