Inspiring Collective Action for Healthy Societies

Healthy societies and healthy populations




Reference number


In February 2020, Wilton Park and partners held a dialogue to explore the social, economic, and environmental determinants of healthy societies, the promotion of cross-sectoral approaches for better health and the prioritization of health in other sectoral policies and settings. The World Health Organization’s goal of improving the health and well-being of one billion people around the globe by 2023 provided the framing for the discussions, with the group exploring how to apply a proper response to building healthier societies.   

In partnership with the Government of Sweden and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (WHO), Wilton Park hosted a series of follow-up dialogues. The series aims to provide space and opportunities for groups and individuals with common interests to come together and explore what is needed to advance the healthy societies agenda, how this can be achieved, and the structures, networks and communities needed to lead this agenda in the years ahead.  

This final dialogue will be a hybrid gathering at Wilton Park, with senior decision makers and influencers from across the public and private sectors and civil society considering how a dynamic agenda can be delivered that results in healthier societies and healthier populations.

In partnership with the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research.
