Whole-of-Government Wellbeing Approaches: A Comparative Analysis of Four Central Government Initiatives
Wellbeing approaches are innovative initiatives for incorporating wellbeing (or quality of life) indicators into policymaking and budget allocation processes. Among other things, they aim to guide and improve the intersectoral action needed to address population health and health inequalities. In order to inform decision making related to wellbeing approaches, the NCCHPP has produced a comparative analysis of four wellbeing approaches put forward by the governments of Scotland, Finland, New Zealand, and Wales.
The NCCHPP has collaborated with the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) to develop a public policy analysis tool adapted to rapid decision-making contexts. This tool is particularly relevant in the context of a health emergency, where decisions must be made at an accelerated pace.
As part of its series on wellbeing policy approaches, the NCCHPP has invited noted public health scholar, Dr. Lindsay McLaren, to offer a critical perspective on the risks and opportunities of this policy turn for public health.
