EPHA’s mission is to improve the health of all people living in Europe and to increase their participation in policy-making that affects their health.

Our vision is
- An equitable society where all individuals enjoy good health regardless of socio-economic status.
- Accountable and accessible EU institutions, transparent policy-making with real opportunities for input.
- Public health prioritized and mainstreamed across all policies, drawing on proven public health models and evidence-based population health interventions.
EPHA has a unique role as:
• A resource: Targeted and tailored information that empowers members and the wider public; a pool of collective expertise well-positioned to advise and evaluate.
• An advocate: An active, articulate champion of its core values that seeks constructive dialogue with institutions and policy makers; acts as a channel of communication to enhance the voices of the public health sector.
• A platform: A space for action, reflection and monitoring; a rallying point for public health groups in Europe; a network that stimulates genuine debate.

The European Network for Smoking Prevention (ENSP) is an international non-profit association, created in 1997 under Belgium law (identification number 16377/97), which aims to reduce tobacco consumption and to develop a common strategy amongst organisations active in smoking prevention and tobacco control in Europe, by sharing information and experience and through co-ordinated activities and projects.

Our vision is of a future where our fellow Europeans will not suffer the distress of ill health and early death because of tobacco. We want our children to be able to grow up without being targeted with messages that seek to lure them into a lifetime of addiction. We want all Europeans to be able to breathe clean air unpolluted by tobacco smoke.

As we increasingly communicate more freely and cross country borders more frequently, we realize that our individual countries do not stand alone; we feel the reverberations of change throughout Europe. Therefore, we undertake to use the best evidence of effectiveness in policy and practice to work together towards our common goal.

4. Promoting best practice through the development of comparative surveys,
5. Jointly developing policy with its member organisations,
