Health Protection

We plan and deliver effective services which co-ordinate, strengthen and support activities to protect all the people on the Isle of Man from infectious diseases and environmental hazards.

We do this by providing advice, support and information to health professionals, government departments, the general public and a number of other bodies that play an important part in protecting health.
