Activate Health is a battle cry for
Activate Health is a call for you to be a health ambassador in your community.
In our healthcare system we think about the sick, the vulnerable, the injured. If we create a system where we think about the healthy, happy, safe human we create a place of health rather than illness, social support rather than marginalization, protection rather than pain, security rather than risk. We aim for wellbeing across all parameters of life; we aim to prolong life; we aim for a healthy human.
This is what we’re starting through Activate Health. It’s about shifting the lens on how we see, think about, and engage with our health. And we want you to join us in taking action.
Individual actions can have a population impact. By working together to shift how we see health and how we engage with our healthcare system, we can protect the health of our communities now and for future generations.
This is our battle cry.

Decoding Public Health
Public health is a very broad and diverse field, dealing with the health of the population as a whole. There are many aspects to public health – but essentially public health is about and for all of us. We are breaking down different concepts in order to ‘decode public health’ so everyone can get involved. Learn more about public health and why supporting our initiatives can help to improve the health of our population.RESOURCES
