Better Health for Europe: more equitable and sustainable: transformational reflections
AbstractBetter Health for Europe: more equitable and sustainable, tells the story of how people working for WHO in the European Region have sought to make a reality of this goal over the last ten years. Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe from 2010 until 2020, narrates the story on behalf of all staff and describes the vision, strategic thinking and processes followed, as well as the impact achieved. Political leaders, public health managers and health practitioners and advocates from across the WHO European Region and beyond were invited to reflect upon the relevance and utility of the work of the Regional Office. Extracts from interviews with these ‘witnesses’ are presented throughout the book to enrich the narrative. This book is divided into three parts. Part I – Better Health for Europe: the seven strategic action priorities, presents the systematic process the Regional Office has followed in developing the policy frameworks, evidence base, capacities, relationships, partnerships, networks and skills needed to transform and enhance action for better, more equitable and sustainable health and well-being in Europe and beyond. Part II – Better Health for Europe: achievements, describes outcomes and the impacts of Regional Office work on the two objectives and four priority actions of the Health 2020 European policy framework. Part III – Better Health for Europe: conclusions and messages, summarizes reflections and looks at challenges beyond 2020.
