HPE focusses on implementation of effective health promoting policies and practices at all levels from local, municipal and regional to national and European. It does this by:
We participate in the WHO Europe Public Health Action Plan and the overall Health 2020 approach via involvement in the overall Advisory Group plus active participation in initiatives within the essential Public Health Operations (EPHOs) agreed by governments.
We particularly work on EPHO 4 (health promotion) which aims to tackle inequities and raise the quality of health promoting services and networks across Europe.
We play a leading role in EPHO 9 (communications, advocacy and social mobilisation) - please see our PHASE sections.
