Director of Public Health annual report 2010 and core tables 2009
This second annual report of the Director of Public Health highlights the many public health challenges that affect people in Northern Ireland.
It demonstrates how the public health team tackles this complex agenda by working with many statutory, community and voluntary partner organisations across health, local government, education, housing and other sectors.
It shows a wealth of innovative work to address the main public health challenges facing communities, health inequality, preventing and protecting against ill-health, detecting illness early, and providing high quality services.
Integral to the report are core tables for 2009 which provide key statistical data on population, birth and death rates, mortality by cause, life expectancy, immunisation and screening.
