Health as a Social Movement

Health as a Social Movement

The mission of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is to enrich society through ideas and action.

Read the blog article and 2018 programme report Health as a Social Movement: Theory into Practice that outlines steps NHS services can follow to mobilise local communities to prevent ill health.

“Health professionals are increasingly aware that social factors – such as the quality of the houses we live in, the work we do, the relationships we share – are accurate predictors of our health and longevity.  Learning how health movements can promote ‘social models’ of health, that respond to these social factors, can help services such as the NHS respond to the daunting challenges facing healthcare systems.”  Tom Harrison, RSA

The video below gives an overview of how community action can influence change.
