A seminar to present the book “Health in All Policies: Seizing opportunities, implementing policies” will be held at the Finlandia Hall in Helsinki June 9 at 15:00-18:00.
The book is a Finnish contribution to the WHO Global Conference on Health Promotion by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health of Finland, the National Institute for Health and Welfare, the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and the UN Research Institute for Social Development.
Join us for an exciting discussion around three themes:
- Theme 1: The challenge of Social Determinants of Health –HiAP as a solution?
The first theme will bring Fran Baum (Flinders University, Australia) and Raúl Mercer (Flacso, Argentina) around an exciting discussion on how HiAP can contribute to strengthen the implementation of the SDH agenda since the final report of CSDH and the World Congress on Social Determinants of Health in Rio de Janeiro 2011.
- Theme 2: Health in All Policies in Low-Income Settings
It has been claimed that HiAP is “difficult” as it would require high levels of capacity, resources and skills from the health sector. Can HiAP work in low-income settings? The second theme will bring Shufang Zhang (UNRISD), Ravi Ram (AMREF, Kenya) and Kimmo Leppo (Editor-in-Chief, Finland) in a crucial discussion for low and middle-income countries.
- Theme 3: Health in All Policies in a globalized world
The third theme will discuss the impact on globalization on Health in All Policies. Does globalization narrow the scope of national policy-makers to improve the health of their population? Can it be a health-enhancing opportunity? Ronald Labonté (U. of Ottawa, Canada) and Vera da Costa e Silva (FIOCRUZ, Brazil) will explore these issues from the perspectives of national policy space for health and tobacco policies.
