1st SPTN Face-to-Face meeting report
The Social Participation Technical Network (SPTN) is a network within UHC2030 and the Health Systems Governance Collaborative. It responds to the network’s objectives to bring together a range of stakeholders, catalyse strategic thinking, and influencing best practices by informing WHO guidance.
The first face to face meeting in April aimed to inform the development of the WHO Handbook on Social Participation for UHC. The SPTN, which includes civil society, academia, and government representatives, together with WHO colleagues, discussed preliminary results of a literature review on concepts and definitions around social participation as well as reviewed a generic and several context-specific country case study methodologies in order to advance learning on large-scale population engagement platforms, civil society involvement and community engagement in national health policy-making.
