Heather Henry, Health Creation Alliance co-chair says “In creating health rather than preventing illness, communities are our natural and equal partners. Health Creation Alliance whole heartedly support the manifesto for a healthy and health-creating society. We seek a shift towards a more entrepreneurial culture where social innovation is seen to be as important as technical innovation. People and communities are the solution, not the problem.”
