On September 7th, Brussels will hosting the Annual Conference of European Public Health Alliance (EPHA). The aim of #EPHA2017 is to catalyse change for health and break down barriers preventing action on chronic diseases that are deeply interwoven with the major economic, social, environmental and political risks facing our societies.
Despite the existence of a strong evidence base for effective policy action on health promotion and disease prevention, too little has been achieved. Policy-makers already know what needs to be done to overcome barriers to good health. The focus of this conference will be to explore how new levers and different levels of power can break through to real action on chronic diseases – by making health everyone’s business.
