Public health is defined as an organized set of actions by public authorities and society through the mobilisation of human and material resources for protecting and promoting population health, preventing disease, and monitoring public health surveillance. These actions are to a large extent developed by the Public Health Agency of Catalonia (ASPCAT) with the collaboration by the public (international, national, regional and local) and private sectors, as well as the community as a whole. However, there is a certain confusion among population between public health and health services provision. This work aims to increase our visibility as an agency and, at the same time, be the basis for focusing on future actions that help increase our presence in society. To this end, four areas of action have been worked on: target groups, websites, social networks, and the media. For each one of these areas, the intention has been to highlight the current situation through different studies, such as the preparation of a survey, benchmarking studies of other agencies – both national and international – with equivalent functions, and the search of past projects undertaken by the ASPCAT. As a result, several conclusions and proposals for action are presented that can help give greater visibility to the great work done by professionals that make up the ASPCAT.
