Abstract

BERNARDINI ZAMBRINI, Diego et al. International health and new forms of association: the Multipartite Dialogue and the Partners Forum. Rev Panam Salud Publica [online]. 2011, vol.30, n.2, pp. 144-147. ISSN 1020-4989.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1020-49892011000800005.

Two cooperative public health initiatives involving representatives of civil society, academia, and the public and private sectors of the Americas are described and analyzed. One of them-the Multipartite Dialogue-promotes an intersectoral approach in its broadest sense, and the other-the Partners Forum-while it represents an institutional initiative, pays particular attention to chronic noncommunicable diseases. Both are a call to action for governments and offer alternatives to tackle regional health problems more effectively.

Keywords : Intersectorial action; international cooperation; chronic disease; technical cooperation; world health.
