Description:
We all aspire to good health and a sense of wellbeing, The compassion of any society can be measured by the efforts which it invests in caring for those unfortunate enough not to enjoy full health, the vulnerable, or people who may have special needs. In Northern Ireland, many thousands of people, across many professional disciplines, are working to promote the health and social wellbeing of the population. This strategy describes the vision of the Department of Health and Social Services for how this work should be taken forward over the five year period 1997-2002. Its primary aim is to secure improvements in the health and social wellbeing of the people of Northern Ireland into the next century. The strategy is not just for the Department It sets priorities, objectives and targets for all those working in the health and personal social services and is relevant to other government departments and many organisations in the wider statutory, voluntary, community and private sectors which support their work. By any standards the strategy presents a daunting agenda, Making it happen will require a major and sustained commitment by many people. Above all, it will require strong alliances and partnerships between a very wide range of organisations, and not just those in the health and personal social services. The wider statutory, voluntary, community and private sectors, as well as individuals and their families, have just as important a role to play in promoting health and social wellbeing. I believe it is an effort well worth making. Success in implementing the strategy, and in achieving its objectives and targets, will bring real gains for the health and social wellbeing of the people of Northern Ireland. It is for that reason that I am pleased to commit the Department of Health and Social Services to this strategy and to commend it to the many individuals and organisations who can play a part in its implementation.
