Economic prosperity and positive health outcomes are inextricably linked.

This programme of work is dedicated to exploring how business and economic strategies can be used to influence the wider determinants of health. We aim to bring new depth of understanding to this relationship and mobilise cross-sector action for lasting change.

Economic prosperity and good health outcomes are inextricably linked. Inclusive economic development is likely to foster healthy lives and healthier populations are an asset to the economy.

This relationship is not simple. Economic and business factors – such as quality of work or under-skilling – significantly impact quality of life, mental and physical health. We can account for this impact by recognising that business and economic strategies can be mobilised to improve health.
