A new report published by Public Health Wales highlights how the combined influences of Brexit, Coronavirus and climate change will potentially see rural communities in Wales experience a time of great change, with both opportunities and negative impacts to navigate.

This Spotlight Paper focuses on the issues that Rural communities may face now and in the future and how this may impact health and well-being in the context of the Triple Challenge in Wales.

The paper seeks to address a gap in existing evidence which shows rural health and well-being as the main focus and identifies a need for further research to support the development of rural health policies and programme development.
