EUPHA and WHO Memorandum of Understanding

This memorandum, which was signed during the EPH Conference 2023 in Dublin, Ireland, underscores the active role of urban and regional entities in shaping health policies and practices, marking a new era where cities and regions as contributors in shaping a healthier Europe, will collaborate more closely with researchers and Public Health professionals from EUPHA.
The MoU concentrates on building a robust evidence base, aiming to facilitate the integration of this evidence into policy and decision-making. It also seeks to create bridges between the local, regional, national, and international levels.
The MoU supports joint advocacy, amplifying the public health voices and strengthening the public health community.
Special attention will be paid to specific topics, with an action plan to be developed in collaboration with WHO Euro teams. These topics include mental health, behavioral and cultural insights, health equity, social and economic determinants of health, addressing noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) with innovative solutions, as well as strengthening a primary health care approach through the integration of the Essential Public Health Functions.
We extend our profound gratitude to the WHO team for their unwavering support and collaboration in this endeavor.
