Public Health Functions and Educational Needs
The Conference: preliminary programme We want to create a forum to exchange successful initiatives and practices in relation to the 3 essential fields of action in Public Health and review our day-to-day experiences to define: Health Protection: essential dimensions, services and educational needs Disease Prevention: essential dimensions, services and educational needs Health Promotion: essential dimensions, services and educational needs
The Conference: preliminary programme We have prepared plenary sessions for the introduction of the 3 themes, followed by different parallel sessions in which the oral communication sessions, poster sessions and thematic workshops will take place simultaneously with the ASPHER workshops and Students forum.
The Conference: preliminary programme After those activities we will look at the integration of public health systems into the health systems through a round table debate with the following topic: “Health systems and their functional framework (stewardship, resource generation, financing and provision of services) and the role of Public Health: essential dimensions and educational needs”
