The links between health, employment, productivity and poverty underline the critical importance of improving the health of the working age population in achieving both greater social justice and higher economic growth.

Promoting health and well-being for all will raise employment, reduce child poverty and poverty later in life, and raise the growth in productivity of the British economy. Similarly, increasing employment and opportunity of employment will directly promote better health and well-being for all. Thus, the health of the working age population is important for everyone.
