2020health is an independent, grass roots think tank whose purpose is to create the conditions for a healthy society through research, evaluation, campaigning and relationships.
Creating a healthy society will come through:
Recognising that those caring for people and their communities are essential foundations of economic success (a caring economy) and that this should be reflected in policy.
Identifying issues of healthcare, wellbeing and personal responsibility and their economic, educational, cultural and technological components then bringing informed people together to produce insight and create sustainable solutions.
Working with people (individuals, charities, leaders) as members of society to share an understanding of the challenges and the rites of passage that engender ownership and enable sustainable change.
Building on our track record of in-depth research, implementation leadership and uptake by government and agencies to further improve determinants of health.
Combining the experience of patients, practitioners, experts and policy makers in the public and private sectors through dynamic projects with the existing research evidence to produce recommendations and implementation plans for action.
Using our evidence on improvement to influence the relevant leaders, practitioners and policy makers.
Holding regular discussion events to provide thought leadership and networking.
Publicising our work through the print, online and broadcast press coverage.
Funding our research comes through unrestricted educational grants and membership. Members receive copies of our reports, come to events and can draw on our expertise for discussion and debate. read on Creating a healthy society
