Protecting and Improving the Nation’s Health (PHE)

Summary

Public Health England (PHE) has published a strategic document which defines seven priorities for the next five years. Health professionals, local and national government, the voluntary and community sector and the public are invited to apply the latest evidence concerning what works in improving the nation’s health. The seven priorities are:

  1. Tackling obesity.
  2. Reducing smoking.
  3. Reducing harmful drinking.
  4. Ensuring every child has the best start in life.
  5. Reducing dementia risks.
  6. Tackling antimicrobial resistance.
  7. Reducing tuberculosis.

“What we are looking to stimulate is a new movement that focuses on creating and protecting health, not only treating ill-health”.
