Public Health Wales is the national public health agency in Wales employing 1800 people. Please take a moment to read our additional documents to find out more about what we do and how we are working to achieve a healthier future for Wales.

Each part of our organisation plays a significant part in contributing to the seven priorities of our Strategic Plan, and as part of our contribution, the Wider Determinants of Health Unit is looking for an individual with drive and ambition to join its expanding team. Working collaboratively, the unit plays a key role in improving the health and wellbeing of the population of Wales and reducing health inequalities.

The Wider Determinants of Health Unit hosts Public Health Network Cymru which provides a network of interest for all those working on public health issues in Wales with quality timely advice, information and support.
