Directions From SOMHD Agreed on the HIA framework and noted the inter-sectoral nature of cooperation needed to implement the activities; The TOR will provide internal coordination mechanism for implementation of the identified activities under the framework; The TOR does not specify the creation of a new subsidiary body under SOMHD and Thailand will revise the TOR;
Directions from SOMHD The Meeting commended Thailand’s leadership in HIA based on the mandate provided by the AHMM and the 6 th SOMHD. Thailand agreed to continue to take the lead in the implementation of the framework in collaboration with the official focal points from each Member State. Thailand requested for the updating of the focal points and support to the participation of the focal points from the respective AMS.
IMPLICATIONS HIA is one of the project activities to be supervised by SOMHD under the lead proponent Thailand. As such, HIA and its focal points will not act as a health subsidiary body with similar TORs. HIA may have a role in the assessment of the value, relevance, and strategic direction of the work of the health subsidiary bodies from 2012-2015 and post 2015. HIA may have inter-sectoral activities that may involve among others disaster management, trade aspects affecting health initiatives, etc. As such, HIA must always come from the perspective of the Health Cooperation as other sectors’ initiatives impacts on it, and vice versa.
Key Messages (1) it is critical to ensure Thailand’s leadership of the concept and process of socialization of HIA in the region, given its vast experience and success at making HIA a national concern; and (2) that in order for HIA to be truly cross-sectoral that the governance mechanism ---- it is important for the discussions on the TOR, put in place an effective and inclusive system that encompasses key stakeholders, among others, in the spheres of development planning, finance, disaster management, and environment.
