The Health Foundation is committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.

We will build on our achievements of the past decade in our new, 3-year strategy. We will also use insights from our work to inform national policy on health and health care in the UK.

The four main aims guiding our work over the next 3 years are:

  • promote healthy lives for all
  • understand the quality of health and care
  • support health care improvement
  • make health and care services more sustainable.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to work to this strategic plan until the end of 2022. We are currently developing our strategic plan 2023–2025.
