Empowering people, communities, and civil society through social participation

May 31, 2024

Global Health Council was one of the lead writers on a special issue of Eurohealth, the journal of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, seeking to clarify and explain:

  • What social participation is
  • Why it should be prioritised
  • How it can be advanced at country level

The voices of key constituencies present the pertinence of social participation for them, and their priorities for its implementation. The articles tackle key questions around policy uptake, representation, capacities, monitoring and evaluation, financing, and sustaining engagement over time.

This Eurohealth was launched at the World Health Assembly on 28 May 2024. You can read the issue in its entirety here.
