The Awards recognise and celebrate a wide range of activities, policies and strategies that empower communities and individuals, improve the population's health and address the wider social determinants of health.
The assessment criteria are based on the principles of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and subsequent international declarations which call for action to achieve 'Health for All'.
The Health & Wellbeing Awards 2018 is now open for entries - deadline is 20 April 2018.
