Health as an asset We want to change the conversation to focus on health as an asset, rather than ill health as a burden
We believe good health supports positive social and economic outcomes – both for the individual and for society as a whole. We want government to view health as an investment for the future so it takes more longer-term decisions.
The social and economic value of health
We have made £2m funding available for innovative research that builds evidence for health as an asset for the economy and society, and generates knowledge to understand the impact that an individual's health has on their own social and economic outcomes.
