Director of Public Health Annual Report
All Directors of Public Health (DPH) in England have the statutory duty to write an Annual Report. This is an independent report on the state of the health and wellbeing of the local population.
The 2020/21 report for Derby covers the COVID-19 pandemic and the health inequalities widened and deepened by the pandemic . The health inequalities discussed in the report have been apparent for many years and have made the impact of COVID-19 worse for many. The report also covers the strength and resilience of the people of Derby and the action taken to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and deliver positive change for our communities.

Sexual Health Needs Assessment
Good sexual health is part of our everyday life. Preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unwanted conceptions is important for supporting good sexual health, but it is more than that. It is about promoting a positive approach to sexuality and sexual relationships towards fulfilling, safe and healthy experiences and helps to prevent unsafe behaviours that may lead to sexual exploitation and violence especially in vulnerable groups.
Good sexual health includes the physical, emotional, mental and social well being in a population, so it is important that the organisations who plan and purchase services (commissioners) and those who provide them (providers), work together.
