Global Social Prescribing Alliance: International Playbook
In a world operating beyond the pandemic, traditional approaches to health and wellbeing might no longer be enough. This book builds on the momentum and vision set out by global leaders in September 2015 at the UN General Assembly when the Sustainable Development Goals were announced in New York. It showcases best practices for Social Prescribing and highlights shared learning that can support health systems around the world to navigate and deliver Good Health and Wellbeing during and after the pandemic.
We believe the opportunity exists to establish a new healthcare model that creates value based on prevention, early intervention and using different types of resources. This approach will enable people and communities to thrive and improve their health and wellbeing, support the existing health services, and create new and meaningful jobs, all while supporting the implementation of the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals.
International Student Movement Framework
The opportunity exists to empower
young students and future healthcare professionals across the world to develop healthy communities through principles of Social Prescribing, Personalised Care, and Sustainable Development Goals.
This document serves as a call for action for students, academics, and clinicians world-wide, to unite and challenge the pathogenic approach to health, in an attempt to explore health promotion and health creation through principles of social prescribing, personalised care, and sustainable development goals.
