Capacity building for health promotion action on social determinants of health and health inequalities focuses on strengthening the abilities of (national and local) governments to improve the daily living conditions of their citizens, to strengthen the personal skills of citizens and to support community action.
This can be achieved through multisectoral action in collaboration with key stakeholders and with sound knowledge and skills on health promotion practices.
Capacity building activities within the health promotion programme therefore focus on:
- Knowledge transfer through knowledge networks
- Providing leadership training to support the development of multisectoral action plans for healthy cities
- Supporting city-to-city learning about best practices for health promotion and healthy cities
- Supporting advocacy workshops for healthy cities action
