"The COVID-19 pandemic and the related control measures have sharpened the focus on public health, highlighted widening health inequalities and emphasised the importance of better investment in and strengthening the public health system.
"Now more than ever is a time to focus on carrying out research that promotes better population health. In particular, we need to focus on reducing differences between the health of different groups, and inform the development of policies that promote wellbeing and reduce disease in people of all ages."
