Cardiff - Population Medicine

We are committed to delivering research that makes a difference to people’s lives and has an impact.​

We do this through our research into the combination of social, environmental and biological risk factors and interventions for improving health, wellbeing and patient care.​

The population health challenge in Wales is characterised by persistent inequality gaps in health and wellbeing, increasingly complex multi-morbidity patterns and a high prevalence of economic, environmental, social and lifestyle related health risk factors such as smoking, obesity and alcohol related harm.​

Overall, people are living longer but many are living with more than one health condition.​

With increasing pressure on the healthcare system and finite resources to meet these needs we must re-think how we engage the public to create healthy environments, improve and sustain health and well-being and ensure that the provision of safe, high quality healthcare services is based on the highest quality of evidence.​
