Voice of Leaders

 

Enabling healthy lives for individuals, families and populations challenges traditional models of work for public, private and civil society stakeholders and puts more pressure on them to work collaboratively.

Enlightened leadership and strong advocacy is needed if multistakeholder collaboration is to effectively establish and deliver the fundamental changes required to the current health landscape.

The Voice of Leaders presents a compilation of statements from world leaders from a range of industries with the aims of: building collective awareness of decision makers on the value of healthy populations and the need for multistakeholder actions to promote healthy living.
