European Public Health Week 2021 – Joining Forces for Healthier Populations

17th to 21st May, 2021, online.

The European Public Health Week (EUPHW) aims to:

  • Make the case for public health and a more inclusive society across Europe
  • Raise awareness and amplify existing messages on five specific public health themes, in line with key organisations at European level
  • Create trust and innovative ways of collaboration among all professionals contributing to public health at local, national, regional and European level.

The themes for the 2021 edition are:

  • Monday 17 May: Communicating science and health
    Conveying accurate and accessible messages is crucial to promote healthy behaviours, particularly during a crisis. How can we better communicate complex health messages in the digital age?
  • Tuesday 18 May: New challenges in mental health
    Loneliness and isolation caused by COVID-19 and its mitigation have aggravated mental health problems in Europe. How can we build better supportive systems to help those in need?
  • Wednesday 19 May: Your local community
    Local solutions are often impactful ways to tackle global public health problems. How can the main players in your local community contribute to better health?
  • Thursday 20 May: All for one health
    Animals and humans share the same eco-system, which requires multiple sectors to work together. How can the public health community collaborate to achieve one health? 
  • Friday 21 May: Leaving no one behind
    The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the most disadvantaged groups, increasing health inequalities. How can public health responses protect the most vulnerable?
