Beyond Healthcare to Health
We are accustomed to thinking about healthcare as treating an illness but there is an urgent need to move beyond the healthcare system to a health system that prioritises prevention over cure and in which everyone has an opportunity to live the healthiest life possible.
Studies have shown that social, behavioural and environmental factors strongly influence the health and longevity of a population.
Your support will enable NUHS to run programmes in the community that seek to improve the conditions that influence health, especially for those with worse health and fewer resources to improve their health, such as the elderly or those with chronic conditions.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss making a gift to support efforts in developing new patient care models that shift care from the hospital to the community and build capabilities of community care.
