HiAP. Health in All Policies: from the local to the global
MetadataShow full item record
[Summary]. TThis paper outlines the core parameters of HiAP. While different countries and communities have varying operational views, the overarching perspective is that it is an innovative view of collaboration between the public policy-making sectors undertaken in good partnership. It can also involve action toward achieving greater health equity, synergy, accountability, and integration. In the Americas, there is overwhelming evidence that intersectoral action drives HiAP and that the current social, cultural, economic, and political context is fertile ground for local government to embrace integrated action and policies on health and health equity. The PAHO strategy to promote an HiAP plan of action at each level of governance is timely and appropriate... For each of these topics, it is argued that deliberate and planned action in concert with, and with respect for, civil society is both important and feasible. Vision and leadership for HiAP at the local level will be inspired by transparent needs assessments, priority-setting, monitoring and evaluation, inclusive reporting, and responsive operational action.
