4. European Public Health Conference



Hurry, hurry, abstract submission for the 15th EPH Conference 2022 is open until 1 May 2022, 18:00 CET. Abstracts are invited for workshops, oral presentations and E-posters. Prizes will be awarded for the best oral, poster and early career professional’s presentation. Abstracts do not have to be confined to the conference theme but can cover any aspect of public health. Check the submission topics here.

All sessions will be 60 minutes. Accepted abstracts are published in the Abstract Supplement of the European Journal of Public Health. Do not miss the opportunity to be recognised for your hard work. More information on our website.


Registration for the in-person 15th EPH Conference is open. You can benefit from early bird registration fees until 1 September. We are expecting over 1,500 delegates in Berlin. Meet your colleagues at the largest public health event in Europe during four fully packed conference days. EUPHA members and delegates from Germany pay € 670 before 1 September, non-members € 760, Students, trainees and colleagues from low- and middle-income countries pay € 400 (all including VAT). More information here


Pre-conferences are held on Wednesday 9 November. The full programme will be announced by mid-May. Pre-conferences are held for half day (morning or afternoon) or full day. Attending a pre-conference requires separate registration. This can be done while registering for the main conference but can also be added to your existing registration at a later time. Registration fees are €75 and €150. Sponsored pre-conferences are €20. (inclusive network buffet lunch and VAT).


The 15th EPH Conference in Berlin will be the first EPH Conference since Marseille 2019 to take place live and in person from 9-12 November. With the steady return to 'normal' life across Europe, we are increasingly confident that we can actually host an in person conference in Berlin in November. From 1 April 2022 there are no longer any restrictive measures for the event industry. Meetings, conferences, events and trade fairs are no longer subject to upper limits and access conditions. Event organizers are free to decide whether and how to make use of protective measures. For the EPH Conference 2022 we will follow the recommendations for responsible events to ensure our delegates can attend the conference safely. Current measures in Berlin can be followed in detail on the websites of VisitBerlin and the State of Berlin.


The theme of the in person 15th EPH Conference 2022 will be ‘Strengthening health systems: improving population health and being prepared for the unexpected’. In the past years, we have learned from the COVID-19 pandemic that infectious diseases know no boundaries. Although we have seen the successful development of vaccines, we have also seen with the spread of the Delta and Omicron variants around the globe that these vaccines have not yet been available to everyone. At the conference, we want to explore ways how the public health community can bring about better population health. How can Europe take a more active role in global health?  Europe must use its knowledge and influence to balance out market forces, expand regulatory oversight and create socially responsible systems for health, especially when it comes to the distribution of vaccines and essential medicines. More information here.


The 15th EPH Conference will be held in the hub27 Berlin, part of Messe Berlin. Hub27 is a modern, multifunctional conference centre with ample room for networking and meeting colleagues. It is easily accessed by U-Bahn and S-Bahn from all parts of Berlin. You can reach Berlin by train from everywhere in Europe. Long-distance high-speed trains arrive at and depart from the Hauptbahnhof. Flights to and from the new Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport (BER), 20 km from the city center.

Developing a much needed Spanish Public Health State Agency

The Spanish Society of Public Health and Health Administration (SESPAS) organised a working group with experts from different public health fields and its ten federated scientific societies. This group was entrusted with the task of preparing a report containing concrete proposals aimed at facilitating decisions on the design and functions of this new institution, from a scientific, technical and independent perspective, and based on the values and ideas that underpin public health.
The full report is available in English on the SESPAS website.
The Agency should be set up as a centre of excellence that strengthens collective public health intelligence in Spain. Its main objective is to lead and coordinate the qualitative and quantitative improvement of the essential public health functions assigned to it and the catalytic support to those implemented throughout the Spanish public health system.
The report proposes 11 key functionsfor the Public Health State Agency:

  1. Health surveillance understood as a comprehensive surveillance, based on the social determinants of health.
  2. Preparing the health system for public health alerts and threats.
  3. Support, coordination, monitoring and evaluation of public health strategies.
  4. Interaction and coordination with supranational public health bodies.
  5. Evaluation of policies and programmes with a public health impact.
  6. Participation as an expert and facilitator in the functioning of the Public Health Commission and the Public Health-related Papers of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System (SNS).
  7. Advice and funding to facilitate innovative action in public health through programmes and interventions that can be carried out by regional and local administrations or their allied entities/collectives in society.
  8. Support and advice for communication strategy and response to demands or information needs in administrations and in society.
  9. Support and advice for communication strategy and response to demands and information necessities from the different administrations and the Spanish society.
  10. Development of training, career and public health research policies and priorities.
  11. Support and advice for decision-making affecting public health.

SESPAS believes that the creation of the Public Health State Agency is a unique to transform health policies, protect and promote population health. The Agency will support the effective development of the General Law on Public Health by applying its principles of equity and health in all policies, contributing to the reduction of health inequalities and to promote sustainability.

The health needs of refugees from Ukraine

The BMJ | Opinion | 9 April 2022
"While difficult to accept, Russia’s aggression is unlikely to end soon. As the violence continues, there will be many more people forced to flee their homes.

One lesson of the covid-19 pandemic was the importance of European solidarity. This is a test of whether we can turn this idea into a reality."
