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 members of the ENWHP work together towards the vision `healthy employees in healthy organisations`. They are committed to the mission of developing and promoting good workplace health practice, which in turn contributes to a high level of health protection and sustainable economic and social development in Europe"(Article 1). This vision is part of a broader vision at European policy level:

The EU Lisbon Agenda identifies the goal for this decade to develop the EU region `to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion`. In this context workplace health promotion is part of the concept of quality in work with impacts on productivity, employment and social cohesion.

With its vision and mission, ENWHP contributes especially to the reduction of health inequalities, to the development of a European health information system and to improving important health determinants with impacts on all relevant settings in working and non-working life.
