Understanding the relationships that make health possible

A view of health too narrowly focused on disease and health care has resulted in unhealthy people, families, communities, environments, and unsustainable health care systems. Naming, promoting and fostering cross-sector boundary-spanning work between individuals, disciplines, institutions and communities has the potential to solve the many problems of a fragmented approach to advancing health. The goal of Promoting Health Across Boundaries is to develop and share new knowledge about the connections that foster health.
