The Faculty of Public Health (FPH), the professional standards body for public health specialists and practitioners, has just published their new five-year strategy.
The strategy outlines the FPH’s mission to work with its members to promote and protect human health and its wider determinants for everyone in society, through:
- Playing a leading role in assuring an effective public health workforce
- Promoting public health knowledge
- Advocating for the reduction of inequalities and for the very best conditions for health and wellbeing to flourish
It is supported by delivery plans for each FPH work area.
Professor Carol Brayne, Director of Cambridge Institute of Public Health and a Trustee for the FPH says: “this new strategy demonstrates how the FPH as the major professional standards body for public health professionals can continue to contribute in a strategic and valuable way to protecting the health of the public now and in the future. I, along with many of my colleagues at the University of Cambridge, have close ties with the FPH as members and contributors to its running and projects, we look forward to working with the Faculty in implementing this new plan.”
FPH relies on members to govern the organisation, plan its strategies and enable them to operate as the professional home for public health specialists. Their members develop and maintain their curriculum, design and deliver examinations, audit CPD, support training courses, lobby government, and in many more ways help deliver on their charitable objects and protect the health of populations.
