Your Health is Your Wealth – Health and Wellbeing Framework 2012-2020

The Department of Health is in the process of developing a Health and Wellbeing policy, which aims to improve the health of the population and reduce health inequalities by addressing the causes of preventable illnesses. The consultation was launched by Ministers Reilly, Fitzgerald, Shortall and Lynch. A link to the public health policy consultation launch can be found below. This policy is intended to cover the period 2012 to 2020.

The development of the Policy Framework is at an advanced stage and a number of background analytical documents have been prepared. They have been published on the Department’s website to allow for views to be incorporated into the final drafts (see Consultation Questions link). A number of questions to guide your feedback have been posted along with these documents.

If you or your organisation wishes to provide feedback on any of these documents please respond by e-mail or in writing to the address provided below.

Please note that the closing date for responses is Friday 1st June 2012
