Policy


Workstreams

How we approach health policy today, including the concepts of wellbeing and taking personal responsibility, will impact not only our health, but the UK’s economy and societal expectations for decades to come.

As part of 2020health’s commitment to improving health and quality of life we have coded our work and research under a number of workstreams that we have identified as the big issues we face in health. Each work stream is structured to deliver a programme of work including relevant research, champion and develop a number of campaigns, promote debate and awareness though events and maximize media opportunities.
