The Health Well is an all-island (Ireland and Northern Ireland) health information website that promotes health and wellbeing by supporting evidence-informed decision making. It also aims to build the health intelligence capacity of public health workers and health related organisations. Watch a video about the Health Well.
The purpose of The All Ireland Public Health Repository is to provide access to health information resources that are needed to develop systems-wide solutions to improve population health and wellbeing, tackle health inequalities and address the social determinants of health (SDH) across the island of Ireland.
The IPH Community Profiles Tool is the only all-Ireland interactive, public health data tool.
Information on a wide range of indicators can be selected, customised, viewed, and downloaded by the user in tabular, graphic and geographic formats for a variety of purposes, including:
- Comparing public health indicators across areas on the island of Ireland
- Examining the relationship between multiple public health indicators
- Examining trends in public health indicators over time
- Examining social and demographic inequalities in health and health-relevant outcomes
- Identifying and developing effective health-related actions
- Promoting awareness of various public health issues.
The Obesity Hub is a free service to the community and aims to support policy-makers and practitioners working to prevent and manage obesity across the island of Ireland. It does this by providing practical and strategic support to the health departments and health and social care service agencies in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Chronic Conditions Hub supports policy-makers and practitioners working to prevent and manage chronic conditions. The Hub brings together a range of information on chronic conditions.
It allows you to:
- Easily access relevant information resources
- Manage and share those resources using online accounts and social media tools
- Better understand and use information
- Keep up-to-date
- Work collaboratively using web groups
Health Inequalities are defined as “preventable and unjust differences in health status experienced by certain population groups”.
The Health Inequalities Hub is a one-stop shop for information on health inequalities providing access to a wide range of resources, journal articles, news and tools.
The Fuel Poverty Hub has been developed as part of our programme of work on fuel poverty and health and our ethos of addressing health inequalities on an all island basis. We hope to develop the hub as a resource which supports a wide range of stakeholders to tackle the unacceptable health inequalities associated with fuel poverty and living in cold and damp housing.
The IPH Open Conference took place on 11th October 2016 in Titanic, Belfast.
The Conference provided a platform for people from all sectors (statutory, academia, community and voluntary etc), North and South, to present on an area of interest to the wider public health audience.
This all-Island Conference explored innovative and practical ways of providing knowledge support for the implementation of two public health frameworks. These are 'Healthy Ireland: A Framework for Improved Health & Wellbeing 2013-2025' in the Republic of Ireland and 'Making Life Better – A Whole System Strategic Framework for Public Health 2013–2023' in Northern Ireland.
