Objective 2: To build capacity and knowledge in the field of public health and health services research with the aim of supporting evidence-informed practice and policy decisions

In a rapidly changing society, there is a constant need for building capacity and knowledge in the field of public health; encouraging the interaction between research, policy and practice and organizing training and education that meets the ever-changing needs of society as a whole. EUPHA will increase its efforts to support and develop a European-wide network of engaged and interconnected public health professionals. 

This objective has three specific actions: 

  1. Building the capacity and knowledge of our member associations and partners, making them stronger as individual organisations and as part of a European network
  2. Building the capacity and knowledge of the individual public health professional by further developing information exchange, joint actions and encouraging a common approach to European public health
  3. Building capacity and knowledge specifically in the field of practice by collaborating and further developing a system for exchange of best practice.
