Our innovative infrastructure and portfolio of funded programmes consolidates, updates and builds on what has been created and delivered to date, placing Wales at the international forefront of health and social care research.

Our infrastructure allows a sharper focus on Wales’ current and emerging areas of excellent and ensures an integrated, interdisciplinary, interagency, all-Wales approach, from research development to changes in practice based on research evidence. The people of Wales are central to the infrastructure and the programmes which lead to major gains in health and wellbeing, effectiveness of services and the generation of national wealth.

Public Health Wales is the national public health institute for Wales.  We are part of the NHS, and provide professional, independent public health advice and services to achieve a healthier future for Wales.  We do this by working in partnership with others to ensure maximum impact in improving health and well-being and reducing health inequalities in Wales.

Public Health Wales has seven strategic priorities:

  • Influencing the wider determinants of health
  • Improving mental well being and resilience
  • Promoting healthy behaviours
  • Securing a healthy future for the next generation
  • Protecting the public from infection and environmental threats to health
  • Supporting the development of a sustainable health and care system focussed on prevention and early intervention
  • Building and mobilising knowledge and skills to improve health and well-being across Wales.
