The Association of Directors of Public Health (UK)

The Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) is the representative body for Directors of Public Health (DsPH) in the UK with the aim of maximising the effectiveness and impact of DsPH as Public Health leaders.

There has been an Association for Directors of Public Health, or an equivalent, for more than 150 years. The ADPH in its current form has been in place since 1989. In 2013 it became a Company Limited by Guarantee and in 2015 a Registered Charity.

ADPH seeks to improve and protect the health of the population through collating and presenting the views of DsPH; advising on public health policy and legislation; facilitating a support network for DsPH; identifying their development needs; and supporting the development of comprehensive, equitable public health policies.
