ABSTRACT MENTOR PROGRAMME
For the first time, EPH Conference and EUPHAnxt introduce an Abstract Mentor Programme providing an opportunity for young and/or less experienced abstract submitters to receive feedback from experienced reviewers. The programme is especially targeted at researchers who have limited access to colleagues to ask for guidance and comments on their proposed abstracts. More information here.
The theme for the 10th EPH Conference is ‘Sustaining resilient and healthy communities’. Many European countries face the challenge of organising health care in a more sustainable manner. Austerity measures threaten the provision of high quality and equitable care. Innovative solutions are needed to contribute to a sustainable service provision. Many countries are looking for solutions that achieve a better design of services throughout the entire chain of care, including public health and prevention. Strengthening of people-centred health systems and public health capacity, including preparedness and response capacity for dealing with emergencies, is high on the agenda of countries, with new approaches and innovations for better health and health equity.
Subthemes of the conference are:
§ Sharing our common wealth- efficiency and equity trade-offs in welfare policies
§ Winds of change: from public to private, from collective to individual. How can public health systems adapt to a changing world?
§ Public health in a globalized world: is Europe ready for the challenges?
§ Health systems under pressure: ageing and migration challenging principles of human rights and solidarity
§ Planetary boundaries and health: how do they interact?
