Health improvement

Promoting positive health throughout life.

The Welsh Government works to improve health and reduce inequalities in health. This includes giving everyone equal access to health facilities and services.

Our focus is on preventing ill health in the first place, and on addressing problems at an early stage.

Our approach

Our approach is to promote positive health throughout life - from healthy children to healthy ageing.  

We do this by encouraging lifestyle changes that will improve health, and by supporting your community to change a range of factors affecting health in the environment, the workplace, and local government.

This area also covers how food, physical activity, or smoking can affect your health.
