Hilary Cottam and Charles Leadbeater have co-authored a summary paper in the lead up to a Red pilot project in health later this year. The paper provides an overview of how an Open approach may be applied where traditional models of public service delivery are proving to be increasingly limited. The potential being for utilising broader social creativity to develop low cost, innovative and personalised services with a focus on self-management. The pilot project is due to commence in the Autumn and the Red unit welcomes any interest or comment. Download file
EPHA is a network of NGOs working on public health in Europe. Our mission is to increase participation of citizens in decision-making related to their health.
Studies show that the more involved and in control an individual feels about their lives and circumstances, the better health outcome.
We use OSS in our office and for our website as a means of improving our communication.
We would be interested in contributing ideas/feedback to this project.
