Public Health England Priorities 2013/2014


This document sets out the priorities for Public Health England in 2013/2014. These are:

  1. Helping people to live longer and more healthy lives by reducing preventable deaths and the burden of ill health associated with smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, poor diet, poor mental health, insufficient exercise, and alcohol
  2. Reducing the burden of disease and disability in life by focusing on preventing and recovering from the conditions with the greatest impact, including dementia, anxiety, depression and drug dependency
  3. Protecting the country from infectious diseases and environmental hazards, including the growing problem of infections that resist treatment with antibiotics
  4. Supporting families to give children and young people the best start in life, through working with health visiting and school nursing, family nurse partnerships and the Troubled Families programme
  5. Improving health in the workplace by encouraging employers to support their staff, and those moving into and out of the workforce, to lead healthier lives

To underpin these outcome-focused priorities we will:

  1. Promote the development of place-based public health systems
  2. Develop our own capacity and capability to provide professional, scientific and delivery expertise to our partners
