The NWPHO fulfills a regional public health information and intelligence function supporting the work of public health professionals, local authorities and providers of healthcare and other services relevant to health of the North West population. As an integrated part of public health intelligence in the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University and the North West region, the NWPHO is also a member of a national network of other public health observatories across England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland (the APHO).
The Network of Public Health Observatories is a part of Public Health England from 1st April 2013. Public Health England has been established to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing and to reduce inequalities. It will lead on the development of a 21st-century health and wellbeing service, supporting local authorities and the NHS to deliver the greatest possible improvements in public health. This is a legacy website containing content from the North West Public Health Observatory, now part of Public Health England's Knowledge and Intelligence Team (North West). Existing tools and legacy information will continue to be available here, but new information will be published on the Public Health England website and data portal.
The following is the list of scholars from North West Public Health Observatory who contributed and/or serves as editors for one or more OMICS International journals and conferences
