The Health Foundation’s £1.5m Social and Economic Value of Health in a Place Research Programme 2019 invites researchers to submit ideas for research that will generate new knowledge on the ways in which the physical and mental health of a population shapes their social and economic outcomes.
Economic and social factors have a complex, dynamic and multidirectional relationship with health. While much is known about the impact of social and economic factors on health outcomes, i.e. the wider determinants of health, relatively little is understood about the impact of health on the social and economic outcomes of individuals and populations.
Social and Economic Value of Health in a Place research programme seeks to understand the extent to which the health of a population (physical and/or mental) shapes the social and economic outcomes of that population.
We want to support five projects with funding between £200,000 and £300,000 for a maximum duration of two years.
