Economies for Healthier Lives - Year two evaluation report

Mar 2024

This report summarises the progress and key learning from year two of the Glasgow City Region (GCR) Economies for Healthier Lives project, one of five Health Foundation funded projects across the UK. Each partnership aims to promote health and reduce inequalities by strengthening the relationship between economic development and health. The GCR project has involved developing a Capital Investment Health Inequalities Impact Assessment (CHIIA) tool, which will be used to inform decision-making on capital infrastructure projects in the region. Specifically, it will prompt consideration of the implications for health inequalities and how to maximise community benefits.

The report offers recommendations to support the next phase of work, including establishing a new way of working with the Community Panel, continued consideration of how to facilitate co-production, and applying systems thinking to support better outcomes.
