European Public Health Association
The European Public Health Association, or EUPHA in short, is an umbrella organisation for public health associations in Europe. Our network of national associations of public health represents around 20’000 public health professionals. Our mission is to facilitate and activate a strong voice of the public health network by enhancing visibility of the evidence and by strengthening the capacity of public health professionals. EUPHA contributes to the preservation and improvement of public health in the European region through capacity and knowledge building. We are committed to creating a more inclusive Europe, narrowing all health inequalities among Europeans, by facilitating, activating, and disseminating strong evidence-based voices from the public health community and by strengthening the capacity of public health professionals to achieve evidence-based change. The Croatian Public Health Association is a full member of EUPHA.
Croatian Public Health Association The Croatian Public Health Association (HDJZ) is a professional association of the Croatian Medical Association in which public health specialists and other professionals and non-professional volunteers who work or want to work in the field of health protection and promotion in the Republic of Croatia voluntarily join in order to achieve common goals and tasks. The association is closely linked to the National Institute of Public Health and the Andrija Stampar School of Public Health.
Joint EUPHA and HDJZ Publication on Health and Ageing To support the Croatian EU Presidency on the theme of healthy ageing, EUPHA and the Croatian Public Health Association (HDJZ) published an e-collection. This e-collection presents the evidence-base on health and ageing, listing scientific peer-reviewed papers on healthy ageing that are published in the European Journal of Public Health in the past three years. The e-collection is accompanied by an editorial describing the policy links and summarising the evidence. During the BFHA 2020 Conference, the e-collection will be presented by Danijela Štimac Grbić (HDJZ) and Tugce Schmitt (EUPHA). The presentation will be on the third day of the Conference, 5 June 2020, in Session 3C.
