Consultation response to the NI Programme for Government
Stormont

The Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) aims to improve health on the island of Ireland, by working to combat health inequalities and influence public policies in favour of health. We promote cooperation between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in public health research, training, information and policy. IPH welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Draft Programme for Government 2008-2011. 

IPH support and welcome the vision of the Programme for Government (PfG) to promote a prosperous, fair and inclusive society and welcome the Executive’s vision of a better future for all. We think a better future for all should include a commitment to protect health and create opportunities for everyone to achieve the best possible level of health and well being. 

IPH believe that improving public health and reducing inequalities in health should be an overarching priority for the Northern Ireland Executive. The following response outlines the issues IPH see as necessary in the development and delivery of the Programme for Government.
