The EUPHA Chronic diseases section aims to increase knowledge on chronic disease control, particularly to develop the evidence base needed to guide policy and identify best practices for combating chronic diseases. As a result, the Section seeks to contribute to a sustainable reduction of illness, disability and premature death, as well as to eliminate health disparities and negative socioeconomic consequences caused by chronic diseases.

EUPHA Sections bring together researchers, policymakers and practitioners working in the same field for knowledge sharing and capacity building. By joining this Section, you can exchange knowledge with your peers in the field of chronic diseases. You don’t need to be a EUPHA Member to join a Section.

We currently have 3476 section members.
It would be great to add you to those members!

Promote your work through the European Public Health Journal, the European Public Health Conference and/or during the European Public Health Week.
