To achieve our vision and make a tangible difference to people’s lives through:

• Better understanding health risks, determinants of health inequalities and drivers of
well-being, particularly in deprived communities;

• Examining how such risks, inequalities and drivers can be influenced by social rather than medical interventions;

• Developing methods and exploring disciplinary interfaces to devise new frameworks for evaluating social business, microfinance and related social inclusion innovations; and

• Collaborating with the public, policy makers and practitioners in translating research evidence for improvement in health and well-being.
