Abstract [en]

Welfare is every person's right. To create conditions for a good welfare it requires coordinated strategic interventions at national and local level. Efforts must be politically supported to be able to strengthen public health. Local welfare management is a measure used to control and monitor public health. The purpose of this study was to investigate local actors perceptions of collaboration in strategic public health efforts with local welfare management in a municipality in central Sweden. The methodology approach was qualitative with a manifest content analysis and sentence concentrator. A total of five interviews with two politicians, two officials and a public health planner were conducted. The results showed that the respondents had an understanding of the benefits of collaboration. The strategic work was influenced by the interaction while working with local welfare accounts. Various collaborative projects had been started and there was a potential to incorporate public health in the strategic work. Participants experienced that health promotion effects of interaction gave them empowerment and good experiences that they carried with them in the continued strategic public health efforts. The conclusions were that local welfare management might be a success factor that spurs the strategic public health efforts in the community. As a result of the work the municipal actors became aware of each other and this could be important for future collaboration on public health between different actors in the municipality.
