In March 2018, the Policy and International Health Directorate of Public Health Wales was designated as a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre (CC) on Investment for Health and Well-being.

The WHO Collaborating Centre develops, collects and shares information and tools on how best to invest in better health, reduce inequalities and build stronger and more resilient communities in Wales, Europe and Worldwide. For more information about the WHO CC see our work plan.

The Directorate consists of two closely aligned Divisions: Public Health Policy and International Health. The Wales Violence Prevention Unit, the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Support Hub and the multi-sectoral Early Action Together teams are also hosted with the WHO Collaborating Centre. Working also with other Directorates in Public Health Wales and our academic and other partners we help ensure that local, national and international learning on investing for health and well-being is available throughout our national and global networks and support the development of skill sets necessary to use such knowledge.
