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 provides an excellent opportunity for its members to learn from each other about effective and evidence-based health promotion. In order to meet the coming challenges for health and wellbeing, the experience and knowledge accumulated in Europe is a treasure that should be shared and expanded as a European response. This will also foster much needed social innovations that will benefit public health in Europe.
