Wellbeing and health are important foundations of a good life for the individual and a flourishing and prosperous society. Too often when people talk about health, their thoughts jump to issues around health care. But we know that the factors that have the biggest impact on our overall health largely sit outside of health care.
The Health Foundation’s programme of work on healthy lives complements our portfolio of work to improve health care delivery, and draws on our experience of making change happen in complex systems.
We want to change the conversation to focus on health as an asset, rather than ill health as a burden. We will be promoting policies and encouraging local action that can make a real and lasting difference.
Here you will find a selection of our most recent work to support everyone’s opportunity of a healthy life in the UK. Sign up to receive updates on our work in this area.
