The department is reorganising


The Department of Public Health is undertaking a reorganisation, which among other things entails that the current eight sections will be reduced to three.

We expect to have the department's new organisation in place by the end of 2018, and until then we will continue to present the old sections on this website.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact a member of the department management team.
