World Public Health Congress

10/12/2020 - 10/17/2020
16th World Congress on Public Health 2020
Public health for the future of humanity: analysis, advocacy and action
The global public health community will be meeting at a critical time for our planet. Global temperatures lie far beyond historical records and there are real fears that we are reaching a tipping point. Threats to food and water supply, poverty and inequalities are leading to mass migration and conflict. Political structures, at national, regional, and global level, are struggling to respond. International agreements, on climate change, nuclear weapons, and much else, are being torn up. The Enlightenment view, that policy should be shaped by evidence, is being rejected by some leading politicians. At a time when global solidarity is required, populist politicians are exploiting divisions.

European Alcohol Policy Conference 2020

11/18/2020 - 11/19/2020
The conference is a platform to reflect on achievements and share experiences with partners across Europe, while also looking forward to new challenges where we can work together across national boundaries. The conference will bring together a broad representation of stakeholders concerned with alcohol related-harm (policy and decision makers, scientists, and alcohol and health experts) in order to strengthen networks, build capacity and stimulate action to prevent and reduce alcohol related problems at all levels.

This year’s conference will run along four overarching categories: alcohol policy in the digital age, alcohol and cancer, alcohol in the workplace and alcohol policy across Europe.

The conference will be raising awareness among the key policy and decision makers of the current burden of alcohol in Europe and the multiple health and social problems it creates. It will explore ways in which cost effective alcohol policies can contribute to the creation of sustainable health system savings. In addition, this conference will consider the synergies between the current work undertaken by both the European Commission and the World Health Organization. In the current political and economic situation, it is necessary to maintain a high level of attention to the issue of alcohol to ensure continued policy developments to address alcohol related harm.
