2010 international meeting for Health in All Policies
The Health in All Polices (HiAP) International Meeting, co-sponsored by the South Australian Government and the World Health Organization (WHO), was held in Adelaide in April 2010.
The Meeting provided an opportunity for South Australia to showcase its HiAP approach to the international community and to identify common themes and issues for a range of jurisdictions.
The Meeting was by invitation only and brought together around 110 delegates from a across different nations, jurisdictions, and agencies. This included representation from
- the World Bank
- the European Union
- WHO regional offices
- high level representatives from China, Quebec, Thailand, Geneva and New Zealand
- South Australia and interstate.
The Meeting has contributed to the development of a strong network of practitioners and decision-makers. This will assist in translating HiAP and other joined-up policy innovations into practical actions across governments and jurisdictions.
Adelaide Statement on Health in All Policies
The Adelaide Statement on Health in All Policies (PDF 141KB) was developed during the meeting. The development of the Statement was coordinated through a writing group with structured critical input from meeting participants.
The WHO and the South Australian Government have adopted the Statement as a key platform. The Statement captures key elements of effective joined up government approaches and the values and principles which underpin them, with particular focus HiAP.
Importantly, it moves the discussion forward from concepts to practical methods which ensure its effective application.
South Australia will use the Statement to build capacity for HiAP with other government departments and other key agencies such as Local Government.
The WHO will use the Statement as a key document to inform planning for the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health, Brazil 2011, and the next Global International Union for Health Promotion and Education conference in Helsinki in 2013.
