The Public Health England
Global Health Strategy
Dr Osman Dar
Consultant in International Public Health
What we do
– provide government, local government, the NHS, MPs, industry, public health
professionals and the public with evidence-based professional, scientific
and delivery expertise and advice
– ensure there are effective arrangements in place nationally and locally for
preparing, planning and responding to health protection concerns and
emergencies, including the future impact of climate change
– support local authorities, and through them clinical commissioning groups, by
providing evidence and knowledge on local health needs, alongside
practical and professional advice on what to do to improve health, and
by taking action nationally where it makes sense to do so

Case study: Middle East Respiratory
Syndrome (MERS)
• MERS arrived in UK in September 2012
• Investigation by Health Protection Agency (now PHE) confirmed a
new pathogenic coronavirus - designated MERS
• Confirmation of 1st MERS case diagnosed, initiated series of
responses within UK and internationally
• Key elements of early response – Define nature of new illness and
prepare UK guidance on managing any future patients.
• PHE worked with WHO and Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia to
collect epidemiological and clinical information, and to put together
a credible picture of likely impact of MERS.
• International engagement significantly improved guidance that PHE
provided for UK clinicians, and contributed to earlier detection, and
better management of subsequent patients.
