The PHA is a multi-disciplinary, multi-professional body with a strong regional and local presence in Northern Ireland. The Agency focuses on public health and wellbeing by bringing together a wide range of public health functions under one organization. PHA has four key functions: health and social wellbeing improvement; health protection; public health support to commissioning and policy development; and HSC research and development.
