Council members

ADPH policy is guided by an elected Council, made up of representatives from our nine regions, the devolved administrations and our associate members. A Faculty of Public Health observer also sits on the Council.  

As well as leading our Policy Advisory Groups, which inform ADPH policy and shape our consultation responses, Council members work to ensure good two-way communication between their network and ADPH.
