Peer Review in Belgium: Children First – pilot local consultation platforms on child poverty

In May 2014, the Belgian government embarked on funding a year-long pilot project of local ‘consultation platforms’, intended to raise awareness of child poverty, provide parents with information about existing aid channels, and lend support to teachers, care providers and families alike. A study has been commissioned to determine the effectiveness of the pilot platforms. This Peer Review will enable the study’s interim findings to be shared with other Member States.

Peer Review in Italy: Innovative practices with marginalised families at risk of having their children taken into care

The benefits to a child’s development of growing up in a positive family environment are frequently stressed. In 2011, Italy launched its Programme of Intervention to Prevent Institutionalisation (PIPPI) of children in ten cities. The programme adopts a holistic approach, involving the collection of different viewpoints (parents, children and professionals) on the child’s needs, parenting capacity, family environment, material difficulties, etc. There is then frank discussion of these issues by the various parties, with the ultimate goal of improving the family’s situation.

Peer Review in Slovenia: Long-term care – the problem of sustainable financing

Like most of Europe, Slovenia faces rapid population ageing. This places huge strain on long-term care (LTC) in particular, and the country has no unified system for providing it. To address this deficiency, a new Act on long-term care, personal assistance and long-term care insurance is being drafted. One crucial issue is how to fund LTC in a fair and sustainable way. This Peer Review will enable Slovenia to learn about the experiences of Member States where various different funding arrangements are used – in line with the Social Investment Package (SIP), which emphasises knowledge transfer and mutual learning as a way of ensuring the adequate and sustainable delivery of LTC.

Peer Review in Poland: The Active Ageing Index and its extension to the regional level

The Active Ageing Index (AAI) focuses on the untapped potential of older people, measuring their independence and participation in paid employment and social activities. In 2013, in a unique move, Poland decided to conduct research into the construction of an AAI in all 16 of its provinces (regions). This Peer Review will provide an opportunity to explore how Poland set about this task (methodology), why it took such a step and what benefits it has identified. It will also consider whether such an approach could be usefully applied elsewhere.

Peer Review in België: Prestatiebeoordeling van gezondheidsstelsels

De beoordeling van de performantie van gezondheidsstelsels (HSPA) biedt besluitvormers de mogelijkheid om de prestaties van de gezondheidsstelsels in hun geheel te meten en daarover geregeld verslag uit te brengen aan het publiek en de betrokken belanghebbenden, maar toch wordt hier in betrekkelijk weinig Europese landen gebruik van gemaakt. In 2008 voerde België zijn eerste HSPA uit en organiseerde het een collegiale toetsing waarin de aandacht voornamelijk uit ging naar de methoden en instrumenten die noodzakelijk zijn om de HSPA verder te ontwikkelen binnen de EU.
