International projects

At C3 our aim is to prevent chronic disease nationally and globally.

We collaborate with thousands of experts and partner organisations to develop solutions to some of society’s biggest public health challenges both in the UK and abroad.

All of our work is connected by a common focus (our mission): helping people to stop smoking, eat and drink better and be more physically active. 

Thanks to the strength of our national and international projects, we received the internationally-renowned Archon Award for exceptional leadership in advancing health in the world.
