Four Nations Study: A comparative systems review and thematic policy analysis of public health across the four constituent countries of the UK

A comparative systems review and thematic policy analysis of public health across the four constituent countries of the UK.

By developing an evidence-based public health systems framework, the report explores the similarities and differences between the public health systems in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales since national devolution to identify areas for shared learning. The framework was refined through systematic reviews of the public health systems overall and of an example area ‘child development in the early years’.
