Social and Economic Value of Health: Place (2019) An innovative research programme to investigate the impact of health on society and the economy
- The Social and Economic Value of Health programme aims to develop knowledge around the impact of health on the social and economic outcomes of individuals and populations through funding original research.
- We have awarded £3.2 million across 10 projects to support innovative research about health’s contribution to society and the economy.
- There have been two rounds of this programme so far. The 2019 round is focusing on the health of populations in a place, and is ongoing.
The 2019 round of the programme aims to understand the extent to which the health of a population (physical and/or mental) shapes the social and economic outcomes of that population.
The programme will help to develop understanding of the contribution that the overall level and distribution of wellbeing and health among the population in a geographical area makes to the social and economic prosperity of that place.
The outcomes of this programme should help to:
- build knowledge of the relationship between a given population’s health and the health of individuals within that population
- establish the definitions and metrics needed to examine the relationship between the health of a population in a place and the social and economic outcomes of that place.
We are funding four projects with awards between £250,000 and £350,000 for a maximum duration of two years.
