We have aligned our activities with strategic aims of EUPHA

We welcome links with other EUPHA sections and wide collaboration with interested individuals

The EUPHA is the foremost umbrella organisation for public health professionals. Membership represents the broad public health community in Europe with 86 members from 47 countries, it is the largest network of public health professionals, covering nearly all countries of Europe as defined by the WHO Regional Office for Europe. EUPHA’s Climate change, ageing and inequality are ongoing threats fuelled by pandemics

Vision: to enable everyone in Europe to achieve the highest possible level of health by providing independent and authoritative analysis of the evidence, combined with targeted advocacy to achieve coordinated action by all key stakeholders.

The EUPHA mission: Achieving a triple A rating for health in Europe

Analysis To ensure that in all parts of Europe there is a strong evidence base, built on sustained investments in research capacity and data, as well as capacity for knowledge translation to support policies that impact on health;

Advocacy To identify, develop, and advocate for actionable policy recommendations in all sectors to improve health;

Action To support capacity-building and collaborations that can achieve public health action in practice.

Analysis signifies science rather than the mere availability of information. It defines knowledge that has passed ethical, rigorous and systematic inquiry to produce evidence that can be applied to current practice or policy strategy document here.
