Belfast Healthy Cities, will work with stakeholders from government departments, universities, the private, public, voluntary and community sectors and within the local and regional context during Phase VII.

Work on the WHO core themes, and priority areas does not occur in a vacuum. The Northern Ireland draft Programme for Government (PfG) a cross departmental framework with 12 outcomes is a basis for delivering public service as an effective and co-ordinated manner as possible, and ’Improving wellbeing for all - by tackling disadvantage and driving economic growth” and provides the overarching regional framework for Phase VII

In implementing Phase VII, Belfast Healthy Cities will:

  • further develop and implement a partnership-based approach on priority areas identified within the context of the city’s Community plan the Belfast Agenda and the region’s public health framework, Making Life Better
  • produce the city health profile which will provide valuable insights into the factors that influence the health and well-being of the citizens of Belfast and the level of health inequalities experienced.
  • engage citizens in defining their health needs and support them to engage with decision-makers for improved community prosperity
  • identify three areas of good practice that will be shared with cities across the WHO Network for mutual learning and inspiration, and which will be monitored by WHO Europe
  • develop annual operational plans that enable review and assessment of progress by all stakeholders, including funders and WHO Europe
