Who we are

Our mission

EuroHealthNet is a not-for-profit partnership of organisations, institutes, and authorities working on public health, disease prevention, promoting health and wellbeing, and reducing inequalities.

We aim to tackle health inequalities within and between European States through action on the social determinants of health.

We work on


EuroHealthNet’s policy platform monitors and influences national and European policy relating to health, health equity, social rights, and the wider issues which affect health and wellbeing. It advocates for policies which are based on good evidence and practice, and supports cross-sectorial and joined-up policy making. Associate members come from all sectors and are willing and able to work on addressing the determinants of health.


The practice platform helps members and associates to build capacity and share knowledge about ‘what works’. Through this exchange they are able to reinforce resources, collaborate, and shape international initiatives. Members are supported in the use of EU funding instruments for the implementation of cost-effective and sustainable health practices, policies, and programmes.


EuroHealthNet’s research platform identifies and promotes evidence-based approaches to health, equity and wellbeing. Associate members are leading centres of research, social equity and public health. Its success is built on collaboration between decision makers, and researchers and their results. It provides an evidence base for policies and practices which tackle health inequalities and environmental threats to health. It helps researchers collaborate, build consortia, and find funding.

EuroHealthNet has a unique position at the interface of health and social policy to improve health and reduce health inequalities. We are an intermediary between policymakers, practitioners, and academics. We are a catalyst for action and dialogue. We facilitate exchange of good practices. We help institutions build their capacity to apply ‘state of the art’ approaches to improving health. Health inequalities are perhaps the worst manifestation of social exclusion, discrimination, and inequity; as a result of our work, government authorities both within and beyond the health sector are more able to address this problem.
