Public health and early intervention (19/09/2017)




This masterclass is compulsory for students who are studying for the University Certificate Public Health Foundations (Children and Families).

Public health is about preventing illness and promoting good health, and it is the work of the public health workforce. We will outline the UK’s current priorities and share the evidence that shows how much poor health and early death is due to where we are born, live and work. Some people are destined to live long and healthy lives and others are not. This inequality starts before we are born. Research shows that the opportunity to change this unfairness is greatest at the start of life. This is why supporting young children and their families to get off to a healthy start is the very best investment we can make.
