The Health Foundation’s £1.5 million Social and Economic Value of Health in a Place Research Programme 2019 has been opened to expand knowledge linking physical and mental health to social and economic outcomes.
Teams that are selected will receive between £200,000 and £300,000 for projects with a maximum duration of two years.
Building on the growing field investigating the social determinants of health and links to the economy, the programme looks to expand on the multi-factorial relationship between the two. Priority areas include:
- Understanding the relationship between a given population’s health and the health of individuals within that population,
- Establishing 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.
The closing date for the programme is 12:00 on Thursday 25 July 2019.
The programme is currently supporting six research projects in this field, investigating this relationship from the perspective of individuals.
