Description:

EuroHealthNet‘s European Platform for Action on Social and Health Equity (PHASE) builds on knowledge on the wider determinants of social and health equity across all policies and practices within and beyond health and social systems. It develops new multi-sectoral partnerships and is open to public, private and civil society bodies committed to achieving ethical objectives. Work undertaken in this pillar supports the European Social Investment strategy and involves leadership of the WHO Europe working group on Communications, Advocacy and Social Mobilisation.

PHASE is an advocacy and action-focused body for EuroHealthNet members plus a wider range of partners from relevant fields in public, private and voluntary sectors willing and able to work on addressing the wider determinants of health. This initiative can therefore reach far wider audiences than health bodies arguing ‘’health is wealth’’ and create alliances beyond traditional actors and thinking. PHASE allows EuroHealthNet to bring together the health and social sectors and encourage the public health community to play an active and innovative role in the implementation and achievement of the EU Social and Employment objectives.
