European Public Health Week

13-17 May 2024


Health is a political choice!





Friday, May 17th - Next generation: Public health of today and tomorrow

This day will put the next generation of public health leaders in focus. New perspectives are essential to create ground-breaking innovations and challenge the status quo.

While we frequently discuss the importance of young voices, it's time to reflect on our tangible actions. Amplifying these voices means more than just acknowledging their value; it involves actively relinquishing control, sharing the stage, speaking less, and handing over the microphone. The final day of the European Public Health Week will focus on Youth Leadership, led by EUPHAnxt and co-organized with other youth associations. 

How can we better engage our grassroots public health community? Can we create pathways to give more power to students and early professionals?  

We will meet the inspiring individuals shaping the future of public health - students and early career professionals -, working to drive impactful change. Together, we can inspire, foster collaboration, and pave the way for a healthier tomorrow!


Daily partners


Friday's daily partner is EUPHAnxt, EUPHA's next-generation network.

EUPHAnxt together with the European Commission's DG SANTE, WHO Euro's Youth for Health Network, Young Forum Gastein, European Nursing Student Association  (ENSA), European Federation of Psychology Students' Associations (EFPSA), European Network of Medical Residents in Public Health (EuroNet MRPH), the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) and the International Pharmaceutical Students Federation (IPSF) are joining forces for the day.
