Background

In September, 2014, a Regional Plan of Action on Health in All Policies was adopted by PAHO's Directing Council. The Regional Plan of Action on Health in All Policies has been informed by the latest regional evidence, best practices documented by countries in the Region, as well as a number of consultations with stakeholders both within and beyond the Region. On 31 March and 1 April, 2015, PAHO will conduct an Expert Consultation on the implementation of the Regional Plan of Action on Health in All Policies (HiAP). This exercise will serve to define concrete recommendations as to how the Regional Plan of Action on HiAP can best be operationalized within the Region of the Americas over the course of the next five years, 2014-2019. This will also provide an opportunity to engage in a dialogue that reflects upon what kinds of interventions have worked in the Region, what we can begin doing to better address Health in All Policies, and what we should be doing differently to more effectively narrow the inequity gap through the HiAP approach.
