Public Health and Other Health Board's DPH Annual Reports

Public Health is "The science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organised efforts of society." (Sir Donald Acheson).

The delivery of Public Health

  • Is population based
  • Emphasises collective responsibility for health, its protection and disease prevention
  • Recognises the key role of the state, linked to a concern for the underlying socio-economic and wider determinants of health, as well as disease
  • Emphasises partnerships with all those who contribute to the health of the population.

Each Health Board in Scotland has a Public Health Department and produces an Annual Report.
