Economies for Healthier Lives - Project Strategic Group

The Economies for Healthier Lives Project Strategic Group brings together key people from organisations across economic development, public health and the third sector – as well as from key anchor institutions which have significant capital programmes. The group will provide oversight and guidance, and will act as champions to promote this new project, in its development and once the toolkit is up and running.
