Charter for Healthy Living - A report from the World Economic Forum’s Healthy Living Initiative
This report presents the Charter for Healthy Living. The Charter’s main goal is to bring together public, private and civil society actors to deliver concrete multistakeholder actions that enable individuals, families and communities worldwide to lead healthy and active lives. To progress towards this goal, the Charter outlines specific focus areas for multistakeholder action, provides principles for a shared mindset for collaborative actions, calls for stakeholders to build on their core competencies to advance the healthy living agenda and stresses the importance of continuously monitoring and evaluating the actions implemented.
The Charter for Healthy Living is the outcome of a 12-month process engaging governments, businesses and civil society around the world. The report aims to introduce the Charter to a broader audience. It carries the message that many public and private stakeholders are aligned with the goal of collaborative Healthy Living actions. It also highlights the widespread conviction that multistakeholder efforts are the key to transforming the current health landscape, in which non-communicable diseases are a main source of mortality, morbidity and lost economic output.
