This seminar draws on evidence gathered in the US and Africa to demonstrate what can be achieved when faith communities and health communities are aligned. Whilst health asset mapping methodologies offer new possibilities for thinking about wellbeing, health assets in themselves are of limited value until they are intentionally leveraged. The significance of ‘agency’ and its relationship to the ‘leading causes of life’ approach to wellbeing is explored and their relevance to global health development argued.
