Dear Section Members,
We had 2 successful workshops and one roundtable during the latest World Congress on Public Health held this year in digital form. We also had an interesting “first talk” during the annual join the network meeting of the Section, leading to the idea of preparing some documents of interest for public health nutrition as lead activity of the Section during the next year.
Please find enclosed the minutes of the meeting. Those who showed interest for the project will receive soon enough a personal email to start organizing the activities.
If you did not propose yourself during our previous survey and you did not attend the annual meeting, but you still want to be involved, please directly email me.
CALL FOR INTERVIEW
EPHA and EUPHA are working together on a joint project, aiming to enhance the health dimension in the Farm-to-Fork strategy. Some activities have already been conducted, including a survey among the general population, a literature review and a webinar.
The plan is now to conduct interview with health ministries representatives across Europe, to understand through what processes and with what degree of impact are government health departments (both national and regional) involved in the formulation of national responses to EU food and farming policies.
We would like to mobilize our national public health associations for conducting those interviews, so please be in touch if you are interested, if you want more details or if you have ideas of colleagues who might be interested themselves by reaching out some of the people involved:
