Health is ‘the business of all sectors’ (WHO, 2013). An EU ‘health in all policies’ approach requires the pursuit of a multi stakerholder model with migration paths towards citizens who are fast becoming empowered health co-producers. However, barriers between health-related systems and activities and the individual’s control over their own health experience, while valuable, are disenfranchised. This competency gap between informed and empowered citizens/stakerholders can be addressed through a collective intelliegence framework, emphasising the inclusiveness of citizens and communities with increased understanding and insights into the barriers to an empowered healthy society.
