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.
The Health Foundation will be carrying out an independent review to build a better understanding of health and health inequalities in Scotland over the past two decades.
We’re working with local government to highlight how councils can help build a healthy society and fix the gaps that cause health inequalities.
