10th European Public Health Conference
01-11-2017 09:00 04-11-2017 17:00 Stockholmsmässan, Stockholm, Sweden

The EPH Conference aims to contribute to the improvement of public health in Europe by offering a means for exchanging information and a platform for debate to researchers, policy makers, and practitioners in the field of public health and health services research as well as public health training and education in Europe. The European Public Health Conference Foundation, the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) and the Swedish Association of Social Medicine are pleased to invite you to the 10th European Public Health Conference.


We thank all colleagues for submitting their abstracts. We received 1,423 abstracts for individual presentations (oral, pitch, e-posters) and 97 for workshops. Abstracts are now being reviewed by the  International Scientific Committee (ISC) that consists of 80 eminent (public) health experts from across Europe. We are grateful to our ISC members without whose good work the high scientific quality of the EPH Conference could not be guaranteed. The review results will be announced by mid-June. Check your emails.


Main theme of the conference is ‘Sustaining resilient and healthy communities’. More information
