EuroHealthNet welcomes organisations and bodies that share our vision of a fairer, healthier, and sustainable future and who are working on the determinants of health and/or inequalities.
Full membership is open to accountable public bodies with responsibilities and/or expertise in public health, health promotion, health inequalities, disease prevention, or other relevant fields. They are mostly national or regional institutes, authorities, and government departments.
To allow non-statutory bodies such as universities, non-governmental and civil society organisations, and other international networks to become part of EuroHealthNet, the Associate Membership category was developed. Associate members can become part of one or more platforms.

Our work would not be possible without the continued commitment and support of Members and Associate Members, and the European Commission’s EaSI Programme 2018-2021. Thanks to you we are delivering results that will create healthier, fairer futures.
We would like to say a special “Thank you” to Nicoline Tamsma who was our president from 2014 to 2018. Your expertise and guidance were valuable.
We are sad to report that in September 2018 our friend, colleague, and long-standing Executive Board member Ineta Zirina passed away. We remember her warmly for her commitment to working for health promotion and against inequality, and for her wonderful smile and sense of humour.
At the General Council meeting in June 2018, long-standing Executive Board member Birger Forsberg stood down, as did Nick Hay. We wish them all the best for the future.
We are also immensely grateful for the hard work and commitment of our team in Brussels, as well as the continuing support of our Honorary Advisor Bosse Petterson.
In the past year we have been joined by several new members of staff: Alba Godfrey (Project Officer), Alison Maassen (Senior Coordinator), Lina Papartyté (Project and Liaison Officer), Vania Putatti (Policy and Liaison Officer) and Chantal Verdonschot (Communications Officer). We are happy to have you with us.
We also said farewell to several colleagues: Monica Aberg Yngwe (Senior Research Coordinator); Aurélie Chun (Project officer); Cathrine Hernandez-Festersen (Policy Officer); and Claudia Marinetti (Programme Manager). We wish you the very best for the future.
Two interns have provided valuable support to the office this year. Thank you to Andrea Bidoli (Policy and Network Development Intern) and John Osborne.
We have worked with a number of external suppliers over the last year and are grateful for their support. Frédéric Demaude provides accountancy services, Alka provides IT support, Kwitelle provides graphic design and web services, MakeYourPoint manages EuroHealthNet.eu, JordacheWD redeveloped and maintains our magazine, CloudMachine has developed our videos, BusinessAndCode manages our CRM database, and Stephen Barnett is our external evaluator.
Members are national and regional institutes, academic and research centres, national and regional authorities and government departments. They operate networks in their communities comprising regional and local authorities, practitioners and professional bodies and not for profit organisations, and have wide communications and consultation links with wider stakeholders.
