Health in All Polices: Suriname is trailblazing

A Health in All Policies approach seeks to improve overall health and development by integrating health issues into decision-making across all sectors. This collaborative idea chimes well with the oft-repeated mantra that the response to non-communicable diseases has to be truly multisectoral, involving all-of-society, if it is to succeed.

In Suriname the Health in All Policies agenda is being pursued with gusto and recognises that the socio-economic determinants of health extend far beyond that sector: synergies, partnerships and alliances with experts, activists, policy-makers, etc., in other areas are being actively pursued.
