This  report provides an overview of public health outcomes in recent years. It also considers the opportunities and challenges presented as efforts are made to maintain the quality of services in the light of recent reforms and financial pressures. It examines trends in 20 indicators across sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV, substance misuse, smoking, childhood obesity and immunizations. Its findings are based on information gathered reflections from senior public health professionals and other provider and advocacy organisations.
