Winter School - Health in All Policies, 30 January - 1 February 2017, Durham University, UK

Publish Date: Aug 15, 2016

Deadline: Dec 14, 2016

Event Dates: from Jan 30, 2017 12:00 to Feb 01, 2017 12:00


Following the launch of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Health in All Policies (HiAP) Training Manual in 2015, the challenge facing policy-makers and practitioners is how to build political will to address health inequalities and how to make intersectoral working succeed to improve health and wellbeing and tackle growing health inequalities. What constitutes success? What barriers might impede implementation? What skills are required to overcome obstacles to success?

This new Winter School is unique, exploring the reality of achieving HiAP in practice from a political perspective, drawing on real-world case studies and research of Durham-based academics with a distinguished international track record in this area.

The 3 day Winter School: Health in All Policies: Making it Work in Practice will be held from 30th January to 1st February 2017 at Durham University, England. It is organised by the Centre for Public Policy and Health (CPPH) at Durham University and will provide an in-depth exploration of HiAP from a global policy, research and governance perspective. Participants will have numerous opportunities for interaction, participation and discussion throughout the programme.

The programme draws on successful ‘systems transformation leadership’ programmes to improve health and wellbeing offered by the CPPH, Durham University.

The CPPH is a WHO Collaborating Centre on Complex Health Systems Research, Knowledge and Action and the only certified centre for HiAP training in the UK. The CPPH is internationally renowned for its work on health systems, health inequalities and the interface between policy and practice.

Professor David Hunter, Professor of Health Policy & Management and Director of the Centre for Public Policy & Health will chair the Winter School and present on national and international policy issues. The Winter School will also be led by Professor Ted Schrecker, Professor of Global Health Policy, who is an internationally renowned authority on global health and is also based within CPPH. There will also be sessions from invited global health policy experts.

A formal programme dinner and drinks reception will be one of the highlights of the event, held in Durham Castle on the evening of Monday 30th January 2017.

Please note that all sessions will be delivered in the English Language.

The Winter School is designed for senior policy makers and practitioners (national and global). Our programme is multi­disciplinary.
