Social business, health and well-being

In this short clip Cam Donaldson discusses a new programme of work at Glasgow Caledonian University, exploring the idea of social business and social enterprise as public health interventions and the challenges that might pose for their evaluation as such. He also touches on the notion of microcredit amongst the most deprived communities in this context.
