Regions for Health Network. Twenty-first Annual Meeting report
Florence, Tuscany, Italy, 20-22 October 2014
Fully in line with the Göteborg Manifesto and with the commitment to pursue Health 2020, the programme of the twenty-first Annual Meeting was designed to address a number of key elements of Health 2020 implementation at the regional level of governance that are of crucial importance for making significant steps in improving populations' health equitably and in a sustainable manner.
Health 2020 is the health policy framework supporting action for health and well-being in the WHO European Region. Health 2020 recognizes that real improvements in health and well-being can be achieved if all government stakeholders, at national, regional and local levels, and societies work together to fulfil two linked strategic objectives:
- improving health for all and reducing health inequalities
- improving leadership and participatory governance for health.
