Abstract

The article is devoted to the implementation of local programs in the socio-humanitarian sphere in the context of the study of aspects of monitoring and evaluation of programs as an important element in ensuring the effectiveness of public administration in the formation and implementation of local development programs. In particular, the study covers urban and regional programs in the field of physical culture and sports. A thorough analysis of the content of these programs through the prism of public administration in the field of health and physical activity of the population as a separate area of socio-humanitarian policy in the cities of Ukraine (Dnipro, Kharkiv). It is confirmed that the development of health and physical activity of the population of megacities is also influenced by related city programs (in the field of culture, education, medicine, patriotic education, tourism development, etc.), which can act as additional mechanisms in implementing public policy in public health. It is established that programs for the development of physical culture and sports are financed mainly from local budgets. It is determined that the weak point of the program-targeted support of public administration activities in the socio-humanitarian sphere is the direction of monitoring and evaluation of programs, in particular in the field of development of physical culture, physical activity and sports. According to the results of the study, it is proposed to introduce into the existing programs such priority groups of indicators in the direction of health and physical activity of the population as: indicators of financial and economic support; indicators of development of infrastructure of improving motor activity; indicator of statistical accounting. This will help increase the effectiveness of local programs in strengthening the population health of the community through the development of the non-medical sector of the urban economy of Ukrainian cities.
