Hampshire Health and Wellbeing

Annual Report of the Director of Public Health 2012-13

The theme of the Annual Report of the Director of Public Health 2012-13 is protecting Hampshire’s health and gives an overview of health threats and associated protection processes for the population of Hampshire.

The chapters reflect the course of a typical life from birth to old age. Case studies of health protection activity within 2012 are included. The final chapter considers issues affecting current and future generations and planning for emergencies, with a focus on air pollution and climate change.

The report does not attempt to cover all health protection issues; it provides a snapshot of health protection issues occurring in Hampshire in 2012 with some high level recommendations to further protect health in the future.
