The "Discussion Paper on Intersectoral Action on Health: A Pathway for Policy-Makers to Implement Effective and Sustainable Intersectoral Action on Health" was developed by the World Health Organization.
It provides a brief primer on intersectoral action for improving health and then provides an overview of 10 steps necessary to implement intersectoral action. It closes with a few case examples from around the globe.
This discussion paper is especially useful for local jurisdictions looking for a brief, concise description of one approach toward advancing health in all policies in a community.
