Track 4: Lincoln West
Mobilizing Citizens and Communities for Better Health

Monday, July 29, afternoon

2:00 - 2:30 pm
Introduction to the Conference Tracks
      Introduction to Track: Ilona Kickbusch, Yale University; Mihaly Kokeny, Secretary of State, Ministry of Health of Hungary; Mary Ann Micka, USAID

Health is not a benefit that can be delivered to a population. To achieve improved health in a country or community, reformers have found that representatives of all stakeholders (from across many sectors) must become involved in a process that enables them to take ownership of the problem and feel empowered to implement the solutions.

The first panel session illustrates the importance of identifying who the stakeholders are and building their support. Lessons learned from those seeking major legislative change as well as those pursuing more specific opportunities to better the quality of life will be presented. The healthy communities/healthy cities program has given citizens the tools needed to take part in the community development process. Methods used to mobilize citizens and communities through this program and some of the notable success stories will be examined by the second panel.

Citizens’ efforts to mobilize resources to benefit vulnerable populations are testimonials to the emerging role of advocacy and civil society in the region. The third and fourth panels will describe how programs were developed to respond to the social and medical needs of children and elderly, followed by a special look at complex community problems that impact women in particular, such as trafficking and domestic violence. Finally, conferees are invited to join Track 1 for the discussion of a case study on managing the change to diagnosis related groups (DRGs), the new hospital payment system in Romania. The strategic planning for this transition recognized that the concerns of all the political and professional stakeholders had to be addressed in order to achieve acceptance of changes that had broad ramifications.
