Director of Public Health annual report 2013 and additional core tables Recognising diversity in Public Health
The fifth Director of Public Health Annual Report for Northern Ireland, launched on 16 June 2014, celebrates diversity in our population.
Diversity is about people and how we value and appreciate those who are not like us. People differ in all sorts of ways which may not always be obvious or visible. These differences might include race and ethnicity, culture and belief, gender and sexuality, age and social status, ability, and use of health and social care services
The report recognises the opportunities and challenges posed by population diversity and highlights some of the key programmes introduced to meet these needs.
