Towards a new model of evidence for population health improvement

The Health Foundation is working with Dr Harry Rutter from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to explore the challenges inherent in the generation and use of evidence for population health improvement, and make the case for change.

Biomedical science has transformed our understanding of what does and doesn’t work in clinical treatments, but it is not always able to answer the more complex challenges of population health.

This project will explore these challenges, bringing together an international expert group to write a consensus statement on the nature of the problem, and potential mechanisms to address it, starting with a focus on the generation and use of evidence from research.

This project will convene a group of global experts in September 2016 to define the nature of these problems and identify the broad thrust of the required solutions. This will be followed up with a process of wider stakeholder engagement, and the development of a programme of work to create a new model of evidence to drive meaningful and effective action in both policy and practice.
