14th European Public Health Conference 2021
November 10, 2021 - November 12, 2021
The European Public Health Association (EUPHA) and the European Public health Conference (EPH) will host the 14th EPH conference on 10-12 November 2021.
THEME OF THE CONFERENCE
The theme of the virtual EPH Conference 2021 will be ‘Public health futures in a changing world’. Public health has changed a lot in the last thirty years. Whole subdisciplines, for example health informatics, and genetic public health, have grown up in that time. Has the core practice of public health changed? Does it need to? If so, we need to identify futures for our discipline, and figure out how to get there. If we don’t, others will, and that is not necessarily for the benefit of our practice, our practitioners, or the public. We need to articulate more forcibly who we are, why we are, and why we are relevant?
In a series of plenary sessions, we examine the most pressing challenges that will affect the future of our discipline in the near future:
- Public health practice, training and workforces for the future
- Learning from the pandemic, and getting ready for the next one
- Digital health – person centred?
- Climate change and public health – a dual role
- Public health, social health, going back to go forwards.
The plenary programme is organised in close collaboration with our international partners – European Commission, WHO Europe, ECDC, European Observatory, EUPHA, EuroHealthNet, ASPHER – guaranteeing inspiring sessions with leading speakers from our own field of expertise and beyond.
The conference will be organised from Wednesday 10 until Friday 12 November. The programme includes plenary sessions, workshops, oral and poster presentations and ample opportunities for networking in Join the Network sessions. Pre-conferences are held on Wednesday morning. Most sessions will be live with interaction and moderation. More information about the programme is available on our website.
