In November 2017, ADPH published a series of policy position statements on eight key topics alongside a narrative document exploring roles and enablers within the public health system. These position statements have since been reviewed and updated.

These statements bring together the views and recommendations of our members on eight key public health topics: outdoor air quality, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, obesity, sexual health, housing, and mental health. The narrative is a collation of existing ADPH publications and views from the membership with key recommendations to ensure the public health system is fit for the future.

These statements will help us to drive our policy work forward and push for our members’ recommendations in all the policy work that we do.

In May 2018, ADPH launched a series of policy position statements setting out a life course approach to public health. The statements explore health and wellbeing at key life stages and cover best start in life, living and working well, healthy ageing, and health inequality.

Our policy position statements help to drive our policy work forward and push for our members’ recommendations in all the policy work that we do.

All ADPH policy position statements are briefly reviewed annually with a full review taking place every three years. The most recent review of this suite of statements was in May 2019.
