Territories of Innovation and Participation in Health- TIPS
Social participation in health in Bogota has had an institutional logic, being linked to health service providers and focused on orientation and information for care and access to health services; therefore, no progress has been made in a true participatory democracy, which is inclusive and with the possibility of greater involvement and incidence in the cycle of public policies and in the improvement of the services received by the citizens.
Currently, there are no analogous or virtual channels to promote knowledge and training in individual and collective health self-care that favor participation in health and encourage collaboration and collective intelligence. This has led to a loss of citizen confidence in their governments, a gradual delegitimization of the public health actions undertaken and a weak satisfaction of citizen needs and expectations.
Since the 1990s, there have been forms and instances of social participation associated with the institutions that provide health services (about 84 in Bogotá), which, although they have been a strength for the sector in the city, have not translated into a true exercise of citizen and community involvement, collaboration and advocacy in the solution of the health problems that affect them.This participation has emphasized on information, consultation and a few spaces for citizen and community involvement, eminently analogous, and has been carried out especially by older people. For this reason, a generational change is required in health participation, broadening the community bases in neighborhoods and localities, the inclusion of special populations usually excluded and thinking about open public innovation methodologies and the use of Information and Communication Technologies to democratize much more the participation in health and regain the trust of citizens in public health entities.
The commitment 'Territories of Innovation and Participation in Health-TIPS' promotes innovative alternatives for participation in health to strengthen bonds of trust with citizens and favor transparency, participation, collaboration and citizen empowerment; it fosters greater access to public information (especially health information), to mechanisms and instances of social participation in health and to training on self-care issues; it favors the development of dialogue and collaboration exercises with citizens to identify the health problems that affect them in their territories and co-create possible solutions with them through co-creation exercises; and it generates social control exercises, accountability in health and open data information analysis workshops in health with greater citizen involvement to generate public value.
General objetive: Broaden the spectrum of social participation in health in Bogota, from minimum levels of information and consultation in the management of health issues that affect them, to greater involvement, empowerment and decision-making power on the part of citizens, favoring the co-creation of citizen initiative projects, greater democratization of participation, social control and accountability, through innovative methodologies, collective intelligence and the use of information and communication technologies.
How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem described above?
- A TIPS digital environmentcreated and implementedforcitizenengagement.
- Five editions of the "Periodico Participación del Día" edited and published with citizen involvement and decisions.
- One hundred community initiative projects co created and implemented to strengthen participation in health in the territories, taking into account organizations with a population, differential and gender approach.
What long-term goal as identified in your Open Government Strategy does this commitment relate to?
Progress will have been made in the spectrum of social participation in health in Bogota, from minimum levels of information and consultation in the management of health issues that affect them, to greater citizen involvement, empowerment and decision-making power. The TIPS will favor public innovation methodologies and the use of ICTs, will be nurtured by information and training strategies in health self-care and social participation, and will be the center of action for a more democratic social control and accountability and the co-creation of citizen initiative projects.
TIPS is aligned with Purpose 5, "Building Bogota-region with open, transparent government and conscious citizenship", of the 2020-2024 Development Plan, "A New Social and Environmental Contract for the Bogota of the 21st century". The purpose of TIPS is related to the reestablishment of bonds of trust with the citizens of Bogota, to disseminate a new type of ethics around care, and for this purpose it privileges social and citizen participation and transcends from a unidirectional relationship from the State to society, to a two-way relationship in which citizens participate, collaborate and empower themselves in the search for effective solutions to the health problems that affect them.
