A healthier UK population
We believe good health supports positive social and economic outcomes – both for the individual and society as a whole.
We aim to change the conversation to focus on health as an asset, rather than ill health as a burden – and to promote policies and encourage local action that improves opportunities for a healthy life in the UK.
Our healthy lives strategy draws on our experience of making change happen in complex systems.
