The iHV has a committed and highly regarded team, with professional expertise in numerous public health priority topics for babies, young children and families. We also engage with practitioners and parents/ carers to support the co-production of our work and outputs through our Health Visitor Advisory Forum, regular networking events, surveys, and bespoke project and training co-production groups.

In addition to this, we have a small select group of health visitor subject matter experts who support our work as ‘iHV Expert Advisers’ for specific specialist topics – see below:
