Founded in 1966, ASPHER is the key independent organisation in Europe dedicated to strengthening the role of public health (PH) by improving the education and training (E&T) of PH professionals for practice and research. It represents the scientific and academic components of the PH workforce education and advanced training.
[ref.p.11 Track 1]
ASPHER members are collectively committed to PH capacity building. Whilst respecting the European diversity of national and regional contexts in which each school of PH operates, ASPHER promotes structured processes of sharing evidence-based PH, models of innovation and good practice, and mobilizing schools of PH to be pro-active in shaping the PH core competencies.
[ref.p.11 Track 2]
ASPHER`s strategic vision includes the promotion of the highest standards of E&T for practice increasingly involving cross-sectoral intervention and global as much as EU wide and national issues. A key role for advocacy and communication to promote and incorporate European values into the wider PH movement is also assumed by ASPHER.
