Population Health

Population Health

Population Health is a service that is charged with health promotion, health protection and population-based screening programmes.

Population Health aims to prevent people living in local communities from becoming injured or unwell in the first instance. In other DHBs, these services are provided by what are commonly known as public health units.


Information Dispatch, Bi-monthly News from Public Health

Our Public Health newsletter goes out on a bi-monthly basis to internal staff and key stakeholders external to the unit.  The aim of the Information Dispatch is to highlight and showcase some of the work we do from a public health perspective, as well as what is going on within public health nationally and internationally. Helping to increase your understanding of the significant role our Public Health service plays in improving the health and wellbeing of the communities is important for us.
