“Fab meeting thank you, really inspiring.”

“It’s the diversity of the participants that makes these meetings so informative – multiple sectors and multiple roles.”

The meetings are for anyone interested in learning from frontline experience of their own, or other sectors, in order to be better equipped to collaborate to promote population health and tackle health inequalities in place.


The Health Creation Forum is a monthly one-hour Zoom meeting during which people from across all those sectors involved in the fight against health inequalities can share, discuss and learn from others’ experience.

Given the coronavirus epidemic, a key focus of the Forum has been responses to, and learnings from COVID-19. As we are now firmly in the planning phase for a new COVID-19 future, the focus of the Forums is ‘Building Back Together. This will enable attendees to learn from and share their experience of collaborations, partnerships and programmes that create health for people and communities in place.

The outputs of the meeting are written-up and shared more widely with our membership.

Each Forum is kicked off by a guest contributor(s) from a particular sector who share their insights, experience and learnings. This is followed by a discussion among all attendees.

If you would like to contribute, please contact us.
