• The Health Foundation is seeking a provider(s) to develop a range of international case studies which highlight examples where national or regional governments have introduced social and/or economic policies that have sought to promote inclusive growth, and have also sought to measure health outcomes.
  • Our aim in commissioning these case studies is to discover and describe examples where there has been a clear desire to promote a more inclusive economy where there have been recognised health and wellbeing impacts and to identify opportunities and approaches which could be applicable in the UK context.
  • This tender is now open for applications and the deadline Friday 12 October 2018.

The Health Foundation’s Healthy Lives Strategy aims to:

  • change the conversation so the focus is on health as an asset, rather than ill-health as a burden; 
  • promote national policies that support everyone’s opportunity for a healthy life; and 
  • support local action to address variations in people’s opportunities for a healthy life. 

The Health Foundation is developing a programme of work that will focus on the role of business and economic strategies to improve health. Our work will build understanding of economic policies to develop a more conducive environment for promoting equality in health outcomes. We will initially focus on the inclusive growth agenda as a strategy for creating improved health outcomes. This programme of work aims to:

  • demonstrate the contribution inclusive growth strategies can make to improving health and addressing health inequalities both now and in the future;
  • engage and mobilise the necessary stakeholders and actors in this agenda;
  • identify and promote action at local and national level.
