This guide is timely as it demonstrated how to make shifts and transitions from spending on cures and treatments to investing in preventive approaches for better health and wellbeing, avoiding potential accumulation of health problems and rising healthcare costs.
It is innovative as it explored new sources of finance and new ways of problem solving beyond traditional models, metrics, partners, responsibilities and budgets.
It is practical and empowering as it included concrete and inspiring ‘out-of-the-box’ examples of how the right resources and capacities can be mobilised to help finance, build and sustain these shifts.
