This article proposes an analytical framework for a whole of government approach for public health problems calling for multisectoral participation. It was written as part of an international series of reflections on “Health in all policies” (HiAP) strategies.
The authors, the Centre’s Louise St-Pierre and François-Pierre Gauvin, examine the principal conditions for assuring intersectoral governance for health. These include, notably, questions of leadership, coordination and collaboration, accountability, and cultural elements such as capacity building, value adjustment, and collective learning.
This article may be of interest to anyone studying whole-of-government approaches to health.
