EUPHA Sections

EUPHA encourages the creation of sections for specific public health themes, which are international and open to all public health experts. The goal is to bring together researchers, policymakers and practitioners working in the same field for knowledge sharing and capacity building.

EUPHA has 26 operational sections and 3 initiatives. To find out more about a section, please click on a section below. If you would like to receive the regular section updates, you can sign up either through your EUPHA account or via the various section pages. You do not need to be a EUPHA member to either set up an account or sign up for the sections. You can also find out how to set up a themed Section.

The official use of section abbreviations can be found here.

In order to contact the Section President, click on the name and an email with the email address will open in Outlook.
