Public Health and Welfare – Welfare Development and Health

The 4th European Public Health Conference will take place from 9 – 12 November 2011 at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen.

Public health contributes to welfare by means of health promotion, health protection, disease prevention and health services. Such interventions represent investments in a better health and better life for populations. At the same time, they contribute to a healthy labour force.

Our key-note lectures will focus on economic crises and health – inequality in health – the contribution of health services to the quality of life of the elderly population – register based research – the Danish flexicurity model for social policy and labour market policy. We will run 13 parallel oral sessions (38 workshops and 27 oral sessions) and three times 20 moderated poster sessions. We will also offer an enticing social programme. Please note the 23 pre-conferences that will take place on 9 and 10 November.

See you in Copenhagen in November!
