  • Implementing a Health 2020 vision: governance for health in the 21st century. Making it happen
    Report commissioned to support the implementation of Health 2020, building on the study on governance for health in the 21st century (above). The report gives policy-makers examples from around the world of use of whole-of-government and whole-of-society approaches and tools to manage the complex policy process. The examples were selected to correspond to the four priority areas of Health 2020, with the following criteria: they provide useful lessons, often illustrate best practices, cover a wide variety of contexts and countries and, as far as possible, have been implemented and, ideally, evaluated. The aim is to contribute to the Health 2020 strategic policy objective of “improving leadership and participatory governance for health”. It is conceived as a living document that will be enriched with new examples and analysis. (WHO/Europe)
