12TH EUROPEAN PUBLIC HEALTH CONFERENCE
20 - 23 NOVEMBER 2019 MARSEILLE CHANOT, MARSEILLE, FRANCE
Theme: Building bridges for solidarity and public
Health is regarded more and more as a wide societal concern. The
public health community has responded to this challenge by building
bridges with professionals from other domains of society: food,
transport, social services, environment, etc. Marseille has for
centuries been one of gateways for people crossing the
Mediterranean but, in recent years, that journey has been
characterized by tragedies among those seeking a better livelihood
in Europe. The Marseille conference offers an opportunity to build
new bridges: of working together between the public health
communities in Europe and Africa, seeking solutions to our shared
challenges as inhabitants of a small planet now facing global
threats, from climate change, emerging infections, and the global
epidemic of non-communicable diseases.
The theme for the 12th EPH Conference is'Building bridges for
solidarity and public health'.Plenary sessions are organized around
the following themes:
- Building bridges migration in a planetary context.
- Solidarity for public health - integrating poverty, conflict
and other threats to health.
- Building bridges between professions.
- New roles for public health practice.
- Building global bridges between public health communities.
