This manifesto demonstrates why the current system doesn’t work for people living with multiple health conditions, and what a better system could look like. It outlines the three main actions needed from government and national system leaders to secure the fundamental shift in approach: 1) support for people with multiple health conditions to live well 2) a drive towards the redesign of multiple conditions care 3) promotion of health in all policies.
