Many Health Development Agency (HDA) publications are available in PDF format below. These publications were either:
- produced by the HDA, or
- commissioned by them, but published after its functions were transferred to NICE.
While these publications help support evidence-based decision making by public health practitioners, they do not represent NICE guidance.
