Sponsor: Business for Health
Business for Health is a business-led coalition of socially responsible employers, purchasers, investors and innovators supporting long-term sustainable innovation and investment in preventative health and care. Its aim is to enhance the health and economic resilience of the UK, catalysing and facilitating business contributions to reduce health inequalities and add five years to healthy life expectancy.
Business for Health was launched as one of the core recommendations from The Health of the Nation strategy launched in February 2020 by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Longevity, and is also cited in Levelling up Health launched on 9 April 2021.
Business for Health is embarking on its first major programme of work to design a Business Index to measure and enhance business contribution to the nation’s health, and guide a risk management framework for health to enhance the health and economic resilience of the UK taking lessons from the climate change experience.
