Community empowerment is a key strategy for health promotion. The aim of this case study is to analyse the role of "Empowered Communities" in Lombardy Region’s prevention programmes addressing pathological gambling (GAP). Through the identification of 5 key principles outlined in the documents "Health in all policies" and "Health for all, all for health", the authors analyse policies on the topic of GAP developed in Lombardy region and their local implementations carried out by Health Protection Agencies (ATS). The authors describe actions taken to engage stakeholders with an intersectoral approach, to value good practices and co-create interventions from a participated governance perspective. Increase in knowledge, perception of control and community motivation was obtained thanks to these actions, thus offering an example that can be applied to other health determinants.
Keywords: Pathological gambling, health promotion, prevention, public health, community empowerment, empowered community.
