PMCG, along with UK-based consulting company Oxford Policy Management (OPM), conducted first workshop on health promotion strategy.
Since April 2009, a consortium of PMCG and UK-based consulting company Oxford Policy Management has been implementing the EC funded project “Technical Assistance for Further Development of a National Health Promotion Strategy and a Prioritized National Health Promotion Action Plan, Georgia”.
This project brought about the notion of a comprehensive health promotion strategy and prioritized health promotion action plan which will subsequently be developed. Working group for creating health promotion strategy was created and first meeting was held on 11 June 2009.
The workshop was led by International Public Health consultant Mr. Philip Milner. Among the participants in the workshop were representatives of Ministry of Health Labor and Social Affairs, international organizations, local NGOs and other organizations involved in the health sector.
During the workshop participants were presented and agreed on a strategy aim, principles, strategy objectives and specific actions for health promotion. The next step will be the preparation of the first draft of a health promotion strategy.
