Welcome to Health matters, Public Health England’s (PHEs) professional resource, which includes infographics, videos, case studies and slide sets alongside written content. This brings together in one place the most informative data and the best evidence of what works in addressing major public health problems, which is particularly useful for:
public health professionals
clinical commissioning groups
health and wellbeing boards
Each edition of Health matters focuses on a specific public health topic, setting out the scale of the problem and the evidence for cost-effective interventions. We also signpost people to additional data, resources and important facts.
The Health matters blogs provide additional insight into the public health topics being covered by each edition.
This edition of Health Matters focuses on the scale of rough sleeping in England, the causes and consequences of rough sleeping (including the links with poor physical and mental health, prevention and effective interventions) and relevant calls to action.
