Making Every Contact Count (MECC) brings together evidence and practice aimed at encouraging people to lead healthier lifestyles, preventing disease and promoting and protecting health and wellbeing. The principles of MECC are underpinned by the wider determinants of health while the outcomes contribute to reducing health inequalities. MECC was first conceptualised as a way of making clinical encounters take account of the potential for healthy lifestyle interventions, however within the North East, since its inception MECC has been a vehicle for maximising opportunities presented by any face-to-face encounters within workplaces and communities. The School of Public Health North East has MECC as part of its vision for public health capacity.
