Video - Global Forum Roundtable: Governance for Health

Price: $20 (CAD)

The 6th Global Forum on Health Promotion was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada from October 16 – 17, 2016. The theme for the event was Health Promotion ~ At the Very Heart of Sustainability, and it celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Ottawa Charter and highlight the contributions of civil society and health promotion initiatives to sustainable development.


The participants of the roundtable discussed how the healthy public policy parts of the Ottawa Charter have moved to a broader understanding of governance for health in the context of global challenges. In order to cope with 21st century influences on health such as unsustainable lifestyles or increasing health inequalities, practitioners and NGOs in health promotion need to look at health through the lens of political determinants as well. The mechanism of governance at various levels has to be more transparent and accountable to the public. During this roundtable, this expectation and the opportunities for better involvement of CSOs into decision shaping was explored.
