Health Challenge Wales websiteFriday, 7 September 2012
The Health Challenge Wales website, formerly managed and hosted by the Welsh Government, has been transferred to Public Health Wales.
The website was developed to encourage members of the public to look after their own health, and organisations to look after the health of their staff and customers.
Public Health Wales will now begin reviewing the current website structure and functionality, and identifying any gaps in content.
Jo Black, Communications Officer and lead on the development of the website, said: “We have all heard of Health Challenge Wales and seen the blue and yellow logo. It’s been around for years and has been very successful.
“Now we want to build on that success and invest in making the website as relevant and as easy to use as possible. We will be working with user interaction specialists to look at how information can be structured in the most meaningful way for our audience, what will encourage people to use the website to help improve their health and how to remove any barriers to use.
“Following consultation with users, local coordinators and other stakeholders, we will be developing new content with specialists from the Health and Healthcare Improvement division.
“This is a big task with important links to the National Health Improvement Review. We hope to have completed redevelopment by the end of March 2013, but the site will be constantly maintained and updated by a new Web Officer who we hope to recruit soon.”
Mike O’Connor is the interim Web Editor for the Health Challenge Wales site.
