In the knowledge of the economic and political contexts in Europe and recognizing the global health challenges of our region, furthermore understanding that neither diseases nor their major risk factors are respecting borders, we have set as leading slogan of our Conference:

„Hungarian Health – European Health”

Reflecting to this idea we aim to start with a new initiative: within the frame of the Conference we will host an English speaking international section. We do hope this initiative will create a new tradition. This time its main focus – within the context of the general program – is:
‘Health Promotion in the Diverse European Communities’

President of the international part of the Conference: Prof. Dr. Allan Krasnik, president of EUPHA Migrant and Minority health Section;

WHO will be represented by Dr. Santino Severoni, coordinator of WHO Public Health Aspects of Migration in Europe program;

Our aim is to host a broad spectrum of Public Health professionals and we would be pleased to greet in Pécs experts dealing with factors influencing the health at population level, as well as those engaged in disease prevention and health promotion.

  • The health of vulnerable population groups
    o Health promotion in segregated communities
