working assumptions
Working assumptions

Addressing the wider determinants of health is key to improving health & reducing health inequalities across, and within, Europe’s regions

Public health has little capacity to contribute to wider public policy

Structural Fund Managing Authorities and Programme Managers do not have active links with, or knowledge of, public health

emerging conclusions
Emerging conclusions

Cohesion policy and health ...

What would make the guide useful ...

  • Role of health authorities may be negligible if no direct funding for health infrastructure
  • Two-way process – improving health is good for employment – improving employment is good for health
  • EU language can be rigid and hard to bend to needs of regions
  • Tension between heavy-investment (transport, environment infrastructure) and social investment projects?
  • Guide should be simple to use
  • Language should comply with Structural Funds programming language & link to EU2020
  • Suggest questions to be addressed to consultees
  • Guide could ‘make people think’ ... and/or be used in monitoring & evaluation
