WHO Collaborating Centre for Advancing Health in All Policies
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has designated the Department for Health and Wellbeing as a WHO Collaborating Centre for Advancing Health in All Policies Implementation. The work of the Collaborating Centre will be undertaken by the newly established Wellbeing SA agency.
Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a proven methodology that catalyses cross-sectoral collaboration to deliver joint public policy for improved health and wellbeing outcomes. The HiAP approach works to deliver co-benefits for the health sector, other areas of government, and ultimately to the community. The Health Determinants and Policy Unit has been responsible for this work in South Australia since its inception in 2007.
The Department for Health and Wellbeing, through Wellbeing SA, will work together with WHO to:
Increase capabilities for action on the determinants of health and health equity through Health in All Policies approaches.
Contribute to the knowledge base on the critical success factors for collaborative practices to enhance systems for health.
Support WHO in strengthening the alignment between the determinants of health and the Sustainable Development Goals to drive collaborative action on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Agenda.
Support WHO to strengthen research to policy translation on the determinants of health to increase evidence-based strategies for prevention and population health.
