November 04, 2008 8:00 AM
WHAT HAS BEEN LEARNED? WHAT IS NEEDED? WHAT IS NEXT? Monday-Tuesday, Nov. 3-4, 2008
 

In February 2008 a workshop of Canadian and Cuban health researchers on “Intersectoriality in the Social Production of Health: Sharing perspectives and experiences to orient a Cuba-Canada research program” was held in Havana, Cuba. This session was successful in stimulating discussion on conceptualizations in each country with regard to health determinants, their intersectoral management and the role of primary care practitioners in this area and pointed to priorities for follow-up.

A workshop of experts from Cuba and Canada are being joined by experts from Kerala, India is being held at the Liu Institute on Nov. 3-5 with the following objectives:

1. Reassessing “social production of health”.   Can the concept of a “social production of health” be usefully reframed from how it was discussed in Social Science & Medicine in 2005, to address issues raised through the Commission on Social Determinants of Health?

2. Intersectoral management and health outcomes. Can we develop methodologies for evaluating intersectoral processes for managing health determinants and their contribution to achieving improved health outcomes?

3. Intersectoral management and primary care revisited – Observations re Canada, Cuba, Kerala

4. Canada-Cuba-Kerala collaboration. What would this collaboration look like? What are the common research questions for a research program?

While this is a session of invited participants (agenda is attached), we are making it possible for those with an interest in these questions to observe the sessions of Monday p.m., and Tuesday and to participate.
