The Health Improvement Committee is the Faculty’s voice on all public health issues related to health improvement and non-communicable disease. We work to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and entire communities by developing new policy, championing evidence-based policy solutions, and working in partnership with government and other organisations to facilitate change.
Our current priorities are: nutrition, obesity, physical activity, transport & the built environment, tobacco control, poverty, and workplace health. We are also leading a project on ‘promoting a culture of health’ and act as the parent committee for a number of FPH Special Interest Groups. We meet quarterly.

We’re always looking for new members to add expertise and capacity to our committee. We would welcome FPH members to apply to join the committee by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
