This is the third Impact Report published by the Service Design Network, focusing this edition on the value service design is delivering in the health sector. The worldwide challenges in the health sector today are enormous. Population aging and the impact of chronic diseases are creating new demands on the quantity and types of care being delivered, while at the same time budgets are under threat and legislative changes to coverage add further complexity.

"From my perspective, there should be more pressure for cities to promote healthier lifestyle. We should think holistically and create visions on how the city environment can support a healthy lifestyle, for example with more bike lanes, offering sports, culture, etc."

- Anne Stenros, the Chief Design Officer of Helsinki
