ENSP is an international non-profit association, created in 1997 under Belgium law, which aims to reduce tobacco consumption & to develop a common strategy amongst organisations active in tobacco control throughout Europe, by sharing information & experience, through co-ordinated activities & projects, by creating synergies among public health advocates thus increasing their capacity to direct their actions more effectively. ENSP acts as the lynchpin for its members creating a central cohesive force for the European tobacco control movement.
ENSP`s vision for the future is to eliminate the suffering of European citizens caused by ill health & early death due to tobacco-related diseases. We want children & young people to be able to grow up without being targets of tobacco industry marketing seeking to lure them into a lifetime of addiction. We want clean air unpolluted by tobacco smoke for all European citizens. ENSP`s strategic goal is to make our continent completely smoke-free by 2040 & our first objective is to work towards full implementation of the FCTC in Europe by 2020.
Given that tobacco control is at different stages in different European countries, ENSP applies the best & most effective evidence in policy & practice to work together towards a shared goal. ENSP members can take advantage of past experience in other countries & adapt such experience to their own needs. ENSP members work together to agree on a common policy & speak together in one voice, thus strengthening the European tobacco control effort & reinforcing European public health messages.
To eliminate the use of tobacco products in Europe, ENSP believes above all that all European countries need to implement comprehensive tobacco control strategies, including high taxes, comprehensive bans on direct & indirect advertising of tobacco, smoking bans in public & all workplaces, introduce strong & large (80%) textual & pictorial warnings on standardised tobacco packages.

Founded in 1966, The Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) is the key independent organisation in Europe dedicated to strengthening the role of public health by improving the education and training of public health professionals for both practice and research. It represents the academic component of development of the public health workforce of Europe for the future.

The mission of the Association is:
• To promote public health education, training, scientific research and service in Europe, and:
• To support the fostering, maintenance and future development of creative, dynamic, goal oriented and cost-effective education, training and research infrastructures and programmes, of high ethical and scientific standard, for public health workforce development, interacting with population health challenges and public health services and systems in Europe, and:
• To develop and sustain goal-oriented strategies and policies for the present and future interaction between systems for education/training, scientific research and practice in population health, and public health related systems and services.

Accordingly, the main functions of the Association are:
• To support the professionalization of the public health workforce in Europe, whilst respecting the diversity of national and regional contexts, in which each school of public health operates, and thus:
• To sustain capacity building in public health, so that it balances with national and European physical, mental, social and environmental population health challenges and threats, and is supported by best standards of public health education/training, scientific research, practice and systems.

Though ASPHER`s principal role includes the promotion of highest quality public health education/training and of the highest standards of public health practice, it also assumes full participation in the wider public health movement, with direct concern for both quality of health and equity in health, in each country, across Europe and globally, in order to achieve the goal of attaining a high level of health for all in Europe.

The members of the European Network of Workplace Health Promotion (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.
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.

Healthy work impacts on the quality of working life and non-working life, and contributes to the level of health protection of communities and populations. It also impacts on microeconomic performance (productivity and innovation) and macroeconomic performance (efficiency of the health care, welfare and education sector, competitiveness of businesses at company, national and European level). Healthy work finally also contributes to social cohesion.

Healthy work is organised through processes both inside and outside enterprises that are based on the general management cycle, and specifically include infrastructure building and marketing.

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.
