The WHO Regional Office for Europe developed the toolkit on social participation to help various stakeholders to promote social participation in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of strategies, programmes and activities to improve population health. This publication is intended for use by policy-makers, project coordinators, professionals and nongovernmental organizations involved in promoting social participation by the general population, including Roma and other social groups (with the understanding that social participation processes must explicitly, but not exclusively, include Roma). 

The toolkit comprises a detailed list of methods and techniques for promoting social participation throughout the policy process, providing examples and case studies mainly based on experience with promoting social participation by Roma populations in the WHO European Region.
