Organised by World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has created a new impetus for transformative approaches to achieving the goals of better health and well-being for all. This builds on the work of Health 2020, the policy and strategy framework for the WHO European Region, which has whole-of-government, Health in All Policies, and whole-of-society approaches at the heart of its implementation.
This Forum will build further on the Forum 4 discussions, but focus on the social and economic determinants of health, health equity and investment approaches to health and well-being by building on the High Level Conference on Promoting Intersectoral and Interagency Action for Health and Well-being in the WHO European Region (Paris, December 2016) highlighting transformative approaches through intersectoral action that empower people, increase transparency and accountability, and strengthen resilience on individual, community and systems level.
