The Advocacy Toolkit was initially developed by participants on the Institute of Public Health's Leadership for Building a Healthy Society Programme. Further development of the Toolkit has been taken forward by the Public Health Alliance for the island of Ireland (PHA) with funding and support from the organisations listed on the left. Advocacy is increasingly recognised as a key element of the public health role as it can help in promoting health and well-being. Public health includes all work to protect and improve health and involves people from all sectors and disciplines. - Advocacy can be carried out by the people affected by an issue or problem, by other people representing them, or by both groups together. - Advocacy is often more powerful if those affected by the problem or issue are involved in or lead the process.
