11th European Public Health Conference

28th November to 1st December 2018, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The annual EPH conferences are considered the premier European gatherings of public health professionals worldwide. Delegates include researchers, policymakers, practitioners and teachers in public health and many other related fields.

Sharing knowledge

The 11th EPH Conference offers excellent opportunities to learn from the latest research and practice, to network with experts and colleagues and to expand your professional horizons. European public health systems are varied, reflecting different societal choices.

Despite organisational and financial differences, they are built on common values: universality, access to good quality care, equity and solidarity. The need to make health systems financially sustainable in a way which safeguards these values into the future is also widely recognised.

The main challenges facing public health include inequalities, the economic crisis, globalization, migration and urbanization, environmental degradation and climate change. These factors all influence the lifestyles and health of the European population, resulting in changing disease patterns and new public health emergencies.

As societies and countries change, so do the public health challenges. This requires a strong public health sector that adapts and responds to societal changes and provides adequate answers to questions like:

  • Are public health systems adequately prepared for changing disease patterns?
  • How can public health practitioners be more effective in today’s societal systems?
  • Which models of public health systems work best and at which levels?
  • What public health leadership is required to deal with these challenges?


The conference offers excellent opportunities for professional networking and for making and renewing friendships. The social programme includes a welcome reception and a conference dinner at the iconic art nouveau Union Building.
