Useful publications and resources on healthy lives A collection of our healthy lives work looking at the social determinants of health, public health, and inequalities


A person’s opportunity for good health starts long before they need health care. A healthy society is not one that waits for people to become ill, but one that sees how health is shaped by social, cultural, political, economic, commercial and environmental factors, and takes action on these for current and future generations.

Browse through our publications and resources below to find out more about the issues that impact on people’s health today.

Infographics series on the social determinants

We've produced a series of infographics looking at the political, social, economic, environmental and cultural factors that shape the conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work and age.
