What is Health Promotion Europe (HPE)

Health Promotion Europe (HPE) is the core high level network,  that brings together bodies at national and subnational level that are publically responsible for health promotion and disease prevention.

While it is clear that many diseases afflicting EU citizens are largely preventable, or that their onset can be delayed, spending on health promotion and disease preventions remains at only 3% of total health budges across the EU. Health Promotion Europe therefore aims to identify and implement effective health promotion policy and practice, to strengthen the resource base and the impact of health promotion across the EU.

Health inequalities and strengthening health in all policies approaches are cross cutting themes in our work.
