Public health guidance

Public health guidance makes recommendations for populations and individuals on activities, policies and strategies that can help prevent disease or improve health. The guidance may focus on a particular topic (such as smoking), a particular population (such as schoolchildren) or a particular setting (such as the workplace).

Guidance produced by other NICE guidance programmes occasionally makes recommendations that could improve health or prevent disease. See the full list of NICE guidance that makes public health recommendations.

Public health and local government

The new Local Government External Reference Group will advise NICE about its new products: Local Government Public Health Briefings. The Reference Group will assist the Centre for Public Health Excellence at NICE in preparing these Briefings for local government in the lead up to Local Authorities assuming responsibility for a range of public health functions from April 2013.
