Choi, Eun Jin ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 9~16
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.009
Objectives: The purpose of this manuscript was to review Intersectoral Collaboration policies for Tobacco Control. Methods: The author selected the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and adopted guidelines, and reviewed intersectoral and multisectoral collaboration policy recommendations. Results: There are 11 chapters and 38 articles in the Convention. In the Demand reduction policies included price and non price measures. The author selected a few non price measures for cross sectoral collaboration examples. They are protection from exposure to tobacco emission, education and communication, banning advertising, promotion and sponsorship of tobacco products, and offering treatment to tobacco use cessation. Inter sectoral and multi sectoral approaches could increase effectiveness, and better outcome of the tobacco control policy for implementation of many different articles of FCTC. Conclusions: It is important to give a specific role in structures of different government sectors and infrastructure for intersectoral collaboration. In addition, the role of civil society is very important for implementation of tobacco control policy effectively, and governments have to support the civil society for anti-smoking activities and campaigns.
Understanding Intersectoral Collaboration in Health Promotion
Kang, Eunjeong ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 17~24
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.017
Objectives: This paper aims to give a review on the concept, the type, and the purpose of intersectoral collaboration, to provide a framework of intersectoral collaboration, and to review the effectiveness of intersectoral collaboration. Methods: Peer-reviewed journals were searched in Pubmed using the terms of 'intersectoral collaboration,' 'multi-sector policy,' 'intersectoral partnership,' and 'cross-sector collaboration.' In total, 240 papers were identified. After reviewing the abstracts of these papers, 59 papers were chosen to be reviewed in full-text. Contents were extracted from these papers that were pertinent to the research questions. Results: Intersectoral collaboration has been advocated since Alma Ata Declaration. However, it has been largely ignored in practice. Various factors including context, support, task, team, interactional process, individual, and overarching factors can affect the success and the failure of intersectoral collaboration. Conclusions: Some strategies to facilitate intersectoral collaboration activities and future research agenda were suggested.

Chae, Eun-Hee ; Lee, Hyo Young ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 25~39
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.025
Objectives: The purpose of this manuscript was to come up with ideas about supportive policies and multi-sectoral collaboration for Mental health Promotion. Methods: The authors reviewed about 40 various international & internal scientific articles including WHO's publications related with mental health programmes and mental health promotion. Besides, we reviewed inter-sectoral and multi-sectoral collaborations of mental health works for policy recommendations. Results: There are many problems in present mental health services; lack of budgets, existence of many vulnerable people, lack of mental health indexes, low accessibilities to mental health services, lack of supportive policies, and no existence of comprehensive control tower. Conclusions: It is important to strengthen public mental health services focused on health promotion. In addition, reinforcement of the infra-structures and establishment of a comprehensive control tower for mental health promotion should be done immediately. The control tower will have specific roles in structures of different government sectors and infrastructures for inter-sectoral collaboration.

Hwang, Jun Hyun ; Park, Soon-Woo ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 41~56
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.041
Objectives: This article reviewed researches on intersectoral partnership of school health programs to suggest importance, current status and development plan of those. Methods: Domestic research papers were screened though Research Information Sharing Service (RISS), Koreanstudies Information Service System (KISS), Medical Library Information System (MEDLIS), Korean Medical Database (KMbase), and digital national assembly library. International papers were searched mainly via Pubmed. Results: Since intersectoral partnership is effective, comprehensive and universal approach for school health programs, many collaborative programs are universally progressing in various domain including smoking, alcohol, mental health and sexual behavior. On the other hand, intersectoral partnership of school health programs in Korea is still in the beginning stage, and there are few intersectoral partnerships. Moreover, there are several limitations including top-down approach, passive participation and lack of studies on the effect of intersectoral partnership. However, intersectoral partnerships in school health program including tuberculosis control system in school or WEE project are in progress, so it is worth looking forward in the future. Conclusions: To achieve successful intersectoral partnership in school health programs, appropriate partnership guideline for Korean society, policy support, active participation and improvement of consciousness in community stakeholders are needed.
Multi-sectoral Coordination Strategy for Policies and Programs on Nutrition Service and Obesity Prevention
Kim, Hye-Ryun ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 57~67
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.057
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to explore coordination strategy through reviewing policies, action plans and acts related to diet, nutrition and obesity from many sectors in Korea, and to develop a possible multi-sectoral approach. Methods: Literature reviews and empirical findings for ongoing international and domestic policies/programs on diet, nutrition and obesity in Korea. Results: Central and local governments have various policies/programs and related acts to improve nutrition and to reduce obesity. Meanwhile, those governments' activities are frequently criticized to be more coordinated in order to achieve their aims. Activities on nutrition and obesity prevention have interdepartmental characteristics but are scattered through six Ministries (including the Ministry of Health and Welfare, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Employment and Labor, Ministry of Culture and Sports, and Ministry of Food/Drug Safety) and 27 Acts such as 'Nutrition Management Act', 'Health Promotion Act', 'Diet Education Support Act'. As a result, a number of areas, especially dietary guidance, nationwide surveys, education programs seem to overlap. Conclusions: Inter-ministerial coordination mechanism should be established to enforce multi-sectoral engagement and cooperation in implementing policies/programs on nutrition and obesity prevention. Furthermore, functions of the Ministries should be reorganized and coordinated in reference to other countries' experiences.

Methods: In addition to the documents after 1990s collected through several physical activity related projects of author, additional snowballing exploration has been done. Results: Globally extensive participation of stake-holders and partnership developed were strategically recommended and implementation strategy and good example were provided. In Europe individual, micro-environmental and macro-environmental specific role of major sectors were provided. Nationally series of Australian documents officialized inter-sectoral linkages from early times and Slovenian program showed examples of inter-sectoral evaluation and health indicators. U.S. national physical activity plan showed specific example of 6 guiding principles and 5 overarching strategies among 8 sectors for good inter-sectoral collaboration. In city level, healthy city approach activated. Conclusions: Various specific good examples of intersectoral physical activity collaboration could searched globally, regionally and nationally for application in Korea.
Contexts and Directions of the Collaboration between Public Health Centers and Community Partners for Health Promotion
Yoo, Seunghyun ; Kim, Kwang Kee ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 77~85
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.077
Objectives: This paper discusses the current contexts of the collaboration between public health centers(PHCs) and community partners for health promotion. Then it suggests directions for the development and enhancement of the collaboration. Methods: The discussion in this paper is based on key literature on community health promotion, including literature reviews and case reports. Results: PHCs are mostly engaged in networking and cooperation rather than collaboration with the community. A typical pattern of cooperation is where PHCs provide healthy-setting types of programs to the community in single-partnered relationships. Current cooperation rarely involves co-planning by a multi-partnered partnership, and is greatly influenced by the interest of PHC directors and PHC performance evaluation indicators. Systems change is recommended to foster collaboration for community health promotion. Such change involves: shared understanding of health promotion and collaboration, inclusion of collaboration mechanism in public health governance, leadership development, capacity enhancement of all partners. role definition of PHCs for community collaboration, and development of collaborative system, at the least. Conclusions: At this point where collaboration should be more than rhetoric, multi-faceted, intersectoral, and concurrent approaches are required to create discourses, to develop cases, and to share experience for actual realization of collaboration for community health promotion.
Measuring Values of Creating Healthy Cities with an Urban Planning Perspective and Implication of Multidisciplinary Collaboration between Public Health and Urban Planning
Kim, Eun Jung ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 87~97
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.087
Objectives: Recent movements in urban planning propose a promotion of health condition as one of its emerging topics as growing body of evidence suggests that individual health is correlated with the built environment. The concept of healthy city was introduced in Korea and many local governments were tried to implement relevant policies. However, empirical studies were insufficient for understanding the relationship between health and the built environment. Most studies and policies were viewed and implemented from public health perspective. The purpose of this study is to estimate a value of healthy city as an activity-friendly environment. Methods: The 195-respondent survey data in Seoul Metropolitan Area was used for estimating the perception of healthy cities. Results: Survey results reported that more than 90% of respondents did walking and/or biking regularly. Moreover, they were willing to pay won3,695 per month for creating healthy cities. Conclusions: This study confirmed that the consideration of built environmental factor was necessary in policies of healthy city. This can offer insights into how to manage and develop the policies of healthy city to help promote individual health conditions.
Directions for Muti-institutional Cooperation in Follow-up Management of Prostatic Disease Screening for the Low-income Group in Gangwon-do
Jang, Sungok ; Lee, Jongseok ;
Korean Journal of Health Education and Promotion, volume 30, issue 4, 2013, Pages 99~110
DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.099
Objectives: This study aimed to investigate factors related to prostate disease and follow-up procedure on health examination program in Gangwon-do. Methods: The studied population was 16,501 male aged 40 or more, who underwent screening tests for prostatic disease in 2011 health examination program designed for the low income residents in Gangwon-do. The screening tests included prostate specific antigen (PSA), international symptom score (IPSS), and maximal flow rate (Qmax). We conducted chi-square test for trend, two independent samples t-test, and binary logistic regression to find out the relationship between prostate cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia and risk factors such as age, PSA level, and IPSS. Results: The number of subjects who turned out positive for PSA level (> 3.8ng/ml) was 971 men accounting for 5.9%. The result of post survey on them showed that 511 subjects (52.6%) got the urology check-up: 156 (30.5%) were diagnosed as normal, 286 (56.0%) as benign prostatic hyperplasia, and 69 (13.5%) as prostate cancer. The detection rate for prostate cancer was 8.8% when PSA level was between 3.81 and 9.99g/ml, and was 30.6% when PSA level was more than 10.00ng/ml. The rates of further testing varied depending on the communities from 26.7% to 68.2%, which was mainly affected by the role of local health center. Conclusions: Our findings indicate that enhanced quality control of local health center and empowerment of screening agency would increase the effort of coupled institutions between public and private sectors.

Objectives: This study aimed to share with experiences of a demonstration program based on a community for prevention and management of hypertension and diabetes mellitus, and to supply the evidence of accessible strategies within the community through the public-private partnershipin the near future. Methods: This study case was "the program of registration and management of hypertension and diabetes mellitus patients" which was conducted in Hogncheon-gun in Gangwon-province, 2012. Results: The infrastructure of this center was constructed with the public-private sector partnership according to the basic model of demonstration program since November, 2012. So, the total registered rate of hypertension and diabetes mellitus patients were 26.6% in comparison with suspected patients (to the result of 2011 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey), 37.8% in comparison with the real number of outpatient (to the claims data of 2011 Branch Honcheon-gun, National Health Insurance Corporation), and 107.8% in comparison with the project goal, sequentially. To the patients who were not treated for 30 and 60 days among the registered patients, a recall service was conducted. Through this intervention, it was monitored that this program has enhanced the consecutive treatment rate of the registered patients. Conclusions: To improve the continuous management of hypertension and diabetes mellitus patients, we are gotten to know that the community need the joint participation and mutual cooperation with public-private sector partnership.

DOI : 10.14367/kjhep.2013.30.4.125
Objectives: The aim of this study is to develop the strategy of promoting participation on physical activity programs among the disabled through analysis of satisfaction on the Welfare Center for the Disabled-based program. Methods: The subjects were 151 disabled people who had physical disability or brain disorder. They had participated on the physical activity programs which were opened in 13 welfare centers for the disabled of Daegu and Gyeongbuk. The data were collected by the survey for 2 weeks in May, 2011. Results: There were no differences in the satisfaction on physical activity programs by general characteristics and health status. As for cognitive factors, it were significantly different on the satisfaction by the importance of physical activity and the fitness maintenance factor (p<0.05, p<0.01). Significant differences were found in the satisfaction by the participating attitude and the participation motives, such as goal-oriented and activity-oriented motives. It were significantly different on the satisfaction by the duration, frequency per week, time per once, and components in terms of the physical activity program. Conclusions: To revitalize the physical activity-for-all project for the disabled, it needs to develop the strategy and to enhance the health education to improve their health status.
