The main theme of the 17th EPH Conference Lisbon 2024 is: Sailing the waves of European public health: exploring a sea of innovation
This year’s conference theme encapsulates the EPH collective mission. Just as explorers once set sail to discover new worlds, EPH, as public health professionals, embark on a journey of innovation and discovery in our field. EPH seek to push the boundaries, discover new approaches, and chart the course for the future of public health in Europe.
Subthemes of the EPH Conference 2024, which will be the focus of the plenary sessions in Lisbon:
Artificial Intelligence in Public Health. Lisbon, a city that bridges tradition and modernity, is the ideal setting to delve into the cutting-edge realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in public health. We’ll explore how AI is transforming disease surveillance, healthcare delivery, and decision-making, propelling us into an exciting era of health innovation.
One Health – Animal Approach. Lisbon’s deep maritime heritage resonates with the One Health concept, which recognizes the interconnectedness of human, animal, and environmental health. Against the backdrop of our historic port, we’ll discuss how taking an animal-centric approach can strengthen public health strategies and mitigate emerging threats.
Social Marketing in Public Health. Lisbon’s vibrant street life and dynamic culture provide a unique backdrop to discuss the art of social marketing in public health. Join us in exploring innovative campaigns, digital strategies, and community engagement techniques to promote healthier behaviors.
Health Inequalities. The diverse neighborhoods of Lisboa, each with its own character and challenges, serve as a reminder of the widespread health inequalities in Europe that persist across the continent. There will be a discussion on innovative strategies that can be employed to reduce disparities and ensure equitable access to health care.
Global Health. Lisbon’s status as a global port city reminds us of the interconnectedness of our world in an increasingly globalized world. Together, we’ll discuss how European public health efforts can contribute to global health solutions, addressing issues that transcend borders.
