Health Equity 2020: Action Learning & Capacity Building in EU10 Regions (WP 7 & 8) Advisory Board Meeting Brussels 16.10.2012
Aims of Presentation Brief introduction WP7 and WP8 Relevance WPs for planning & implementation of regional policies Challenges to link to wider regional development plans Main considerations to maximise effectiveness of work with regions …with a focus on the situation in pilot regions.
WP 7 – Action Learning Programme (1) 4 workshops & virtual action learning sets (Elluminate Live!): –Needs assessment –Entry points –Economic evidence –Action planning 20 participants per workshop –Each region gets travel costs & subsistence allowances: 700 for one person, up to 1.000 if more than one person participates Workshops hosted by Polish & Slovene pilot regions & two other EU10 locations
WP 7 – Action Learning Programme (2) Target audience: Stakeholders in participating regions Approach: –Taking regions from their starting points (what has been achieved) –Exchange between regions & of region-specific development scenarios –Translation of evidence & experience into action Starting with pilot regions (see also WP8)
WP 8 – Capacity Building Practical support to access/use knowledge & experience Key elements: –Capacity building audit & re-audit in participating regions –Development & review of policy matrix (with key stakeholders) –Creation and coordination of expert networks for workshops, virtual action learning sets, mentoring
Cross-links with WPs 4-7 WP 4 –Conceptual framework health inequities –Approaches to measure health inequities –Evidence-based approaches to address health inequities Tool box Policy matrix Key domains of needed expert knowledge WP 5 and WP 6 –Baseline capacity audit conducted in pilot regions Development of self assessment tool for capacity audit –Informing action learning process –Provision of experiences and practical knowledge to prepare and validate content of workshops –Identification & recruitment of experts for key policy domains identified in WP4 Organization of two workshops / action learning activities
Next step: Concept for capacity audit and capacity building Which capacities / fields for action / policies / actors should be taken into account? –Health governance vs. governance for health (Kickbusch/Gleicher 2012) –Universal vs. selective policies –Not place-based vs. place based policies Screening existing tools for capacity audits and assessments –Capacity Audit / Assessment Tools –Health system Performance Assessment Tools Exchange of experiences with capacities, capacity assessment / capacity building in pilot regions Formative evaluation And now: capacities to address health inequities – status, experiences, challenges, opportunities - the perspective of the pilot regions. Evidence What works? Tool Box (WP4) Screening existing tool Know how of pilot regions Formative evaluation

Time schedule: Second year (2013/14) 7 July 89101112123456 June Online workshop to introduce tool and guide X Regions conduct capacity buidling audits XXX Regions provide audit reports X Analysis of reports X Interim capacity building report X Regions prepare action plans for improvements locally and via WP 7 and 8 X
Time schedule: Third year (2014/15) 7 July 89101112123456 June 2 pilot regions conduct re-audit XX Final revision of capacity building tool and guide X
For Discussion: Policy Matrix 1.Action spectrum on inequalities in health 2.Intervention map for comprehensive policies to reduce social inequalities in health 3.Regional capacities to address health inequities in a multilevel context 4.The European context of Health Equity 2020
Ad 1.: Action spectrum on inequalities in health Measurement Recognition Awareness raising Concern Mental blockWill to take action Isolated Initiative More structured developments Comprehensive coordinated policy Denial / indifference (Whitehead 1998: 471) What about the situation in the pilot regions?
Ad 2: Intervention map for comprehensive policies to reduce social inequalities in health Social reform Upstream Risk reduction Midstream Effect reduction Downstream Universal measures Public system for education, taxes, labour market policies etc. Working and living environment, broad lifestyle measures etc. Health systems Selective measures Means-tested social benefits etc Targeted lifestyle measures Targeted health services (Torgersen et al. 2007: 8) 12 3 What are the current priorities in the pilot regions?
Ad 3: Combining relevant policies in a multilevel context (draft) Intra-Regional Governance for Adressing Inequities in Regions and at the Local Level Regional Planning Horizontal Regional Cooperation Regional Administration Regional Policies: Actors in Regions Territorial Policies MS Territorial Policies EU Not Place-based Policies of MS Not Place-based Policies of EU Horizontal regional networks in MS Horizontal Regional Networks in EU Regional Policies MSRegional Policies EU Where to look for what kind of capacities? What is going on in the pilot regions?
Ad 4: The European Context of Health Equity 2020 … EU and Europe 2020 –7 Flagships –Health is Growth Programme –EU SF: direct and indirect investments in health (infrastructure) … WHO and Health 2020 –2 goals –4 policy priorities –6 proposed targets –10 EPHOs –10 know-how areas How are the activities framed in pilot regions?
Europe 2020 – 7 flagships initiatives Smart –Innovation Union –Youth on the MOVE –Digital Agenda Sustainable –Resource efficiency –Industrial policy Inclusive –Agenda for new skills and jobs –Platform against poverty (How) Will this influence the Health Programme? COM (2010) 2020 final
