Summary
The WHO Regional Office for Europe commissioned this report to support the implementation of the health 2020 Framework. It builds on Governance for health in the 21st century: a study conducted for the WHO Regional office for Europe. This report provides policy-makers with examples from around the world of how whole-of-government and whole-of-society approaches have been implemented together with a set of tools to manage the complex policy process. These policy examples have been selected with a view to the priority areas set by the Health 2020 policy framework and with the following criteria in mind: they provide useful lessons, often illustrate best practices, cover a wide variety of different contexts and countries and, as far as possible, have been implemented and, ideally, evaluated. The report aims to contribute, in particular, 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 continually enriched with new examples and analysis.
