The (Net)working Together (Samen (net)werken) series from the Dutch public-private network Everything is Health (Alles is Gezond) sets out experience and expertise for fruitful collaborations between public and private actors from a diversity of domains and disciplines for improving health and wellbeing. The publications distinguish three phases:
- Building a network. This phase includes, amongst other things, the identification of urgent societal issues, engaging in dialogue, and making a plan to tackle the issue.
- Further development and growth, including gaining expertise and sharing experiences with other networks, initiating impulses to keep the process going, and engaging with politics.
- Implementation and sustainability of results. This phase includes finding financing to ensure sustainability and man power, finding continuing support, and proposing structural measures for policies and practices.
