PHE – Duncan Selbie’s Friday Message 15 September 2017

15th September 2017

Short weekly update from the CEO of Public Health England (PHE), including:

  • overview of PHE annual conference this week which brought together over 1500 people. The three themes were addressing inequalities, promoting world-leading science and the economics of prevention.
  • new PHE data which shows that liver disease, an almost entirely preventable illness, is now the fourth most common cause of years of life lost in people aged under 75 after heart disease and lung cancer.
  • publication of a new Health Economics Evidence Resource, which pulls together the best available cost-effectiveness and return on investment evidence, initially focused on the areas of the public health grant.
