Health in Wales is working to improve the public health of people in Wales, whether they be children, teenagers, adults, or pensioners. People who have not been properly educated on the importance of eating right and exercising regularly can be more susceptible to weight gain, mental health problems, and other serious conditions.
Health in Wales is focused on making sure that people understand how to live a healthier lifestyle so that they can prevent these issues from occurring in the first place.
Health Connects People
Launched by Public Health Wales and run by Swansea Council, Health Connects People is a dedicated website that aims to improve access to health services across South West Wales.
By providing access to health information and advice as well as resources such as local healthy eating guides, exercise plans, and flu clinics, Health Connects People allows users to quickly find important health information without having to go through lots of steps or navigate multiple websites.
Whatatum & HealthPP
In order to improve public health and tackle key issues such as obesity, diabetes, and lifestyle-related cancers, it is necessary to raise awareness of how easy and achievable it is to make healthier food choices.
Platforms like Whatatum provide a space where people can share their healthy diet success stories in a social environment.
And HealthPP offers a cost-effective way for healthcare providers to deliver weight management programs online, enabling them to reach more people around Wales.

- How does my food get to me?
- When do I feel unsafe?
- How should I handle this?
- How can I improve my safety?
- What are my best diet and exercise practices?
- How can I improve my mental health?
- What is your experience?
- What does your platform do to support?
Health Controls Your Life
In general, your lifespan and well-being are determined by how you choose to live. You have control over what you do and how you think about everything, and your state of mind ultimately leads to a happy or unhappy life.
To extend our lives as long as possible, we must ensure that our lifestyles are healthy from every angle: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
The good news is that there are many platforms available to help us improve each of these areas, so let’s take a look at some of them.
