Public health best practice to be promoted by new HDA collaborating centres

A goal of strengthening intellectual and academic networks and promoting best practice in public health has been set for nine new collaborating centres, launched across England and Wales by the Health Development Agency.

Based mainly in the university sector, the centres will each have their own focus on gathering evidence on what works to improve health and reduce health inequalities and building on practice development in areas such as smoking cessation and drug prevention. They will help strengthen public health infrastructure by creating a network of organisations and institutions working together to further develop HDA evidence and promote good practice.
