Objectives -To stress that it is essential to build partnerships with various stakeholders as early as possible in the Urban HEART process -To understand that building an inclusive team will be one of the most important steps for the productive implementation of Urban HEART Objectives for Session
Build an Inclusive Team Build partnerships with diverse policy sectors, levels of government, and communities as early as possible – Will need data from a wide range of sectors and levels of government to analyse health inequities in your city – An inclusive approach helps build political commitment Team building may be the most time-consuming step in the process, but may also be the most important step
An Urban HEART Team A network of agencies and individuals informed and ready to participate in Urban HEART Agreements to consider resource sharing/resource allocations Endorsement of tool by one or more influential champions Terms of reference Momentum to proceed!
Who should be involved? Social, economic and health policy stakeholders who have authority to share data If new funding will be required for interventions, engage the finance departments early on All relevant levels of government planning Community leaders, elected officials, NGOs People who have experience analysing large datasets
Stakeholder Analysis Activity
Brainstorming on Urban HEART team Who should be on the proposed Urban HEART team for your city? What are the steps to get the stakeholders involved? What are the resources needed to begin building a team in your city?
Exercise on ranking stakeholders Prioritize the stakeholders in terms of their comparative importance and ease of getting them onto the Urban HEART team Rank stakeholders in terms of: how difficult is it to engage them to join the Urban HEART team (from 1 to 10, in ascending degree of difficulty) the relative importance for their inclusion on the Urban HEART team (from 1 to 10, in ascending degree of importance) Complete the table in the following slide
Stakeholder Roles and Responsibilities Difficulty in engaging stakeholder (1=Easiest...10=Hardest) Relative importance for inclusion (1=Lowest...10=Highest) Is there an existing point of contact?
More questions for thought Are there any existing agencies that focus on health equities in cities? Is Urban HEART recognized by any agencies or local authorities?
