Scientific evidence as well as on-the-ground experience indicate that there are marked differences in the quality of life and wellbeing enjoyed by the members of society in Malta.

These differences are reflected in inequitable access to physical and mental health, income and employment, family and social interaction, levels of education and skills, freedom of expression and engagement, leisure, environmental quality and open spaces, and other benchmarks of wellbeing. Such inequalities may grow wider among future generations and the Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society believes that transformative action in these and other areas are a matter of urgency.
