European Public Health Week

17 May 2021 to 21 May 2021

EuroHealthNet is an official partner of The European Public Health Association’s Public Health Week 17-21 May, which aims to raise awareness about important public health themes and connect professionals contributing to public health across Europe. We will co-organise an event on Friday, 21 May ‘Leaving no one behind’. The focus will be on ‘COVID-19 and health inequalities: taking action for change”, examining how COVID-19 has aggravated health inequalities, and on how to invest in initiatives/good practices that could plant seeds for broader system change. Professor Clare Bambara will present findings from her new book, The Unequal Pandemic: COVID-19 and Health Inequalities.

The European Public Health Week (EUPHW) aims to:

  • Make the case for public health and a more inclusive society across Europe
  • Raise awareness and amplify existing messages on five specific public health themes, in line with key organisations at European level
  • Create trust and innovative ways of collaboration among all professionals contributing to public health at local, national, regional and European level.

The themes for the 2021 edition are:
