The review found that initiatives aiming to involve people in decision-making to address inequalities and determinants of health and wellbeing are more effective if they focus on a mix of these elements: strengthening formal and informal spaces for participation, developing opportunities for collective learning, building collective capacities for influencing, developing relationships and trust, and changing institutional practices in ways that value public knowledge.
