French Public Health Agency


Inspired by the British model when it was created in 2016, the French Public Health Agency (Santé Publique France - SPF) is an agency under the Ministry of Health. It was created from the merger of four organisations to improve the coherence and efficiency of public policies in the fields of epidemiological observation, health monitoring, preparation and response to health emergencies and crises, prevention and health promotion. In its report responding to a request from the Senate Social Affairs Committee, the Court of Accounts examined the way in which the agency has carried out its missions since 2016, the strategy it has implemented in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and its administrative management. While SPF was a key player in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, in particular in the management of strategic stocks, the Court identified weaknesses in its management and positioning and makes recommendations to address these.
