We are the national public health institute in Wales,  employing just over 2200 people. Our staff work internationally, nationally and locally to provide a full range of public-health services, programmes and functions which includes working with communities, schools, workplaces and other agencies. 

We provide national screening programmes and microbiology services, and help to protect the public from infectious diseases and environmental dangers. We also support the NHS to improve outcomes for people who use its services. We provide evidence and advice to support and influence government health policies, and work with international colleagues to learn from other countries and share our experiences in Wales. 

 Our vision is working to achieve a healthier future for Wales. We are committed to improving people’s health and wellbeing and to reducing inequalities in health. We will continue to listen and learn from the people we serve, including people who have protected characteristics. To make this happen we have identified seven priority areas. These are:   

  •  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 focused on prevention and early intervention 
  • Building and mobilising knowledge and skills to improve health and well-being across Wales
