We’re pleased to bring you our round-up highlighting some of PHE’s online activity from the past week. Here’s your chance to catch up on what you might have missed including:
Health Matters - giving every child the best start in life
This week we launched our fifth edition of Health Matters, focussing on giving children the best start in life. Our launch blog contains more information and links to the latest resources, including a selection of infographics available for download.
HIV Innovation Fund 2016/17
Our HIV Innovation Fund is back and is now open to entries for 2016/17. We're looking for projects that could help prevent HIV across England.
As part of public engagement for plans to create a national science hub in Harlow, Essex, we hosted a three day exhibition for locals which explains more about the project and what it will mean for the local community.
PHE HealthX Hackathon
This week in Manchester digital developers and health experts got together to devise tools with a vital aim; to help children eat better and move more. Read our blog: The HealthX Hackathon – can health and tech join forces to beat obesity?
This week we launched a dedicated online dashboard of cancer-related information, alongside NHS England. Read our accompanying blog 'New cancer dashboards - so much data; enough information?'
International Nurses' Day 2016
Thursday was International Nurses Day and our Chief Nurse Viv Bennett blogged about the role that nurses have in the fight against obesity.
Oral health survey
We published an oral health survey this week, which shows that the number of 5 year olds with tooth decay has dropped to its lowest level in almost a decade. You can get more information on caring for children's teeth from NHS Choices.
