Pilot actions

The aim of WP6 is to pilot methods and tools that stakeholders can use to identify evidence-based and/or innovative actions for addressing factors contributing to health inequalities. The Centre for Health and Development Murska Sobota (representing a micro-region in Slovenia) works with the Slovene Ministry of Health and regional development council. The Medical University of Lodz (representing a large region in Poland) works with the Department of Health Policy, Marshal’s Office of the Lodz Region. The processes will lead to regional action plans.

To achieve this overall goal the regional partners established an intersectoral Local Action Group (LAG) with representation from:

  • National Government;
  • MA responsible for OP relating to Health/MA responsible for social cohesion/innovation;
  • local government;
  • Health authority;
  • NGO’s;
  • research organisations.


The LAG is responsible for:

  • local mapping of needs at regional level;
  • identifying possible solutions using the policy portfolio (WP4);
  • estimating the impact of priority actions using impact analysis guidance (WP4);
  • use social innovation methods that help the LAG develop innovative solutions where evidence is not available to address specific needs;
  • prepare a deliverable action plan to address factors contributing to health inequalities in this region;
  • undertake the conceptual development of at least two projects and systemic initiatives that will address priority actions;
  • disseminate results of the pilot through the project to participating regions/MS, cascading its impact into at least 4 other OP’s in micro-regions in at least 4 other MS.
