  4. 4. PwC OUTLINE OF PRESENTATION • Some background • The importance of definition… wide or narrow? • Engagement of the NGO and Social enterprise sector • Some examples of how this takes place – • Emmaus Communities • Directions …where may we be going? • What are the issues? • Questions and discussion7th Nordic Health Promotion Research Conference 4 15. januar 2013
  5. 5. PwC Some background • The concept of health has often been embedded in the development of the NGO sector. • Early hospitals were typically religious or NGO based • Visiting of the sick was seen as a charitable activity • Healthy activity was core to many of the NGO’s such as the Youth Hostels and YMCA type organisations • Much of the campaigning by NGO’s for better industrial conditions in factories was strongly health related. (The Salvation Army even set up its own factories to make safety matches which did not cause industrial disease) • Many organisations focused on campaigning to inform and encourage people to live more healthier lives 7th Nordic Health Promotion Research Conference 5 15. januar 2013
  6. 6. PwC The importance of definition… wide or narrow in Health Promotion Therefore when considering the role of NGO’s and Social Enterprise it is important to consider whether you take a Broad or Narrow definition • A Narrow Definition focuses just on NGO’s as EXPLICITLY focusing on Health Promotion • A Broad Definition looks at whether the NGO may indirectly as well as directly have a positive impact on healthy living • I prefer the BROAD DEFINITION ! But there are some problems doing this 7th Nordic Health Promotion Research Conference 6 15. januar 2013
  7. 7. Health is (to a very significant extent) socially determined • Social enterprises act to remedy/ameliorate social conditions (“factors in the social environment”): they have a social mission as their primary purpose • So if all social enterprises act on the social determinants of health then can ALL social enterprises be viewed as providers of public health? Source: Roy et al 2013 "This ends the debate decisively. Health care is an important determinant of health. Lifestyles are important determinants of health. But... it is factors in the social environment that determine access to health services and influence lifestyle choices in the first place.” Director-General Dr Margaret Chan, at the launch of the final report of the WHO Commission on Social Determinants of Health, 2008.
