Discussion focused on four key questions.
- What is today’s context for health policy in a fast-changing Europe?
- What is the scope of the policy, including its target audiences and main products?
- What values, guiding principles and evidence base should support HEALTH2020?
- What process should be used to develop the policy, which includes involving partners and identifying key milestones?
The policy is being developed to accelerate progress towards achieving the European Region’s health potential by 2020 by addressing key public health and health policy challenges. WHO/Europe seeks to engage and consult with a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure that a spectrum of views informs the development of the policy and can sustain it in the longer term.
