Improving health
Previously NHS Health Scotland


Publication name: Asset based approaches to health improvement
Date: 28 October 2011
Description: NHS Health Scotland has produced a briefing paper which explains what is meant by asset-based approaches and summarises what is already known about their potential for improving health. We hope it will provide a useful platform for developing and evaluating interventions using these approaches that could contribute to improving health and reducing health inequalities.
