AbstractBackground and Aim: Formation of any kind of intersectoral cooperation and interaction
requires a coherent and stable pattern and structure so that interaction is formed and continued in
its light. There is little scientific evidence on features of an appropriate advocacy model in the
area of interaction between the ministry of health and high councils of the country in line with
the improvement of the public health, which shows the necessity of the present study.
Materials and Methods: This was a qualitative research with a grounded theory approach,
which analyzed the existing policies by defining a suitable advocacy model. Data was collected
through in-depth semi-structured interviews, group discussion sessions, and document analysis.
In total, 21 interviews and three group discussion sessions were held. It is notable that the
participants were selected by purposive sampling with maximum diversity and snowball
sampling to select the interviewees. Data analysis was performed in MAXQDA10 after the
implementation of all interviews and group discussion meetings.
