Opportunities for scaling up and strengthening the health-in-all-policies approach in South-eastern Europe



As an approach, Health in All Policies (HiAP) has been recognized in major European resolutions, charters and communications, treaties, frameworks and action plans.

This report aims to gauge opportunities for scaling up and strengthening a HiAP approach in 9 of the South-eastern Europe Health Network (SEEHN) countries. It is based on a review of materials prepared by SEEHN member countries’ representatives for the Third Health Ministers Forum, "Health in All Policies in South-eastern Europe: A Shared Goal and Responsibility". An overview is followed by detailed country-specific studies of current policy, and challenges, opportunities and recommendations for strengthening HiAP.
