UK “Healthy Lives” White Paper Offers Ideas on Improving Government Approach to Health

Editor’s Note: The White Paper attached below is intended to provide food for thought, not a model, for changes to US health policies.  Of note, the paper states that “[w]e will end central control and give local government the freedom, responsibility and funding to innovate and develop their own ways of improving public health in their area.”  The paper also states that “it is simply not possible to promote healthier lifestyles through [government] diktat and nannying about the way people should live.”
