Campaigns and Policy

Our public health Campaigns aim to draw attention to particular issues - and call on a wide range of organisations, Local Authorities and Government to make changes to improve public health and wellbeing for all. In addition, our important Policy Work covers many key areas of concern - such as Drugs and Alcohol UseFood AllergiesObesityVaccinations and Workplace Health.

We base our research and recommendations on the expertise and experience of our Members; a small army of Public Health Professionals and Educational Institutions from around the world. In this way, we hope to present an authoritative voice that stimulates debate and effects change.
