Scientific evidence of the beneficial effect of vaccines is overwhelming; there is unequivocal evidence going back decades that vaccines have been one of the major drivers of the decreasing burden of infectious diseases. Yet we in Europe cannot be complacent. Vaccination coverage with MMR measles, mumps, and rubella is already too low in several countries in Europe, leading to outbreaks of measles, with cases in children needing hospitalisation or even dying.
Everywhere, vaccine hesitancy threatens the achievement of sufficient vaccine coverage to protect populations from infections. Austria was, in , one of the last European countries to decide to adopt a general ban on smoking, to be implemented in With the discussions of coalition partners to set up a new government, this general ban on smoking is back on the discussion table.
In den 13 Jahren, die seither vergangen sind, ist ein Land nach dem anderen dem irischen Beispiel gefolgt. Alcohol is a topic high on the agenda of the presidency and this e-collection serves as a robust evidence-base and valuable resource for public health researchers, advocates, and policy makers across Europe.
The statement to the European Commission on the public consultation on the evaluation of the EU Framework for national Roma integration strategies up to The Stockholm Declaration on sustaining health and resilient communities is published at the Stockholm conference.
This Declaration was set up by the European Public Health Association and the Swedish Association for Social Medicine and invites other NGOs to fully engage in collaboration across professions to promote sustainable and healthy communities throughout Europe and beyond.
If you are interested in joining the Stockholm Declaration, contact us at office eupha. The authors end their comment with a call for action: Scientists should reject the siren songs of involvement in tobacco industry promotions. Specifically, we are concerned that there is insufficient attention to public health research. Such research, seeking to develop population-level responses to the growing burden of diseases, and especially of multi-morbidity, can offer innovative means to prevent and protect health by tackling some of the major drivers of the overall burden of disease.
Please click here for the full statement. This report — set up by a working group within the EUPHA section on Food and nutrition — calls for all European states to establish a statutory Sustainable Nutrition Task Force, that considers and includes the wider aspects of food.
EUPHA calls upon the EU institutions to ensure that public health and health systems research are given due importance in order to enable European solutions, informed by evidence, to assist policy making in these challenging times.
The Vienna Declaration calls on all parts of the public health community, in Europe and beyond, working at all levels, local, national, regional and global, to recognise the multi-tiered determinants of health and opportunities for action. We will include this in our list of supporting organisations.
Spread the Vienna Declaration: The European Union should urgently come forward with a new target and measures to cut serious road injuries, according to public health and medical experts from across Europe in a letter sent today to the president of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker. The guiding principles of the Action plan are in line with our four pillars: We cannot invest in future generations while ignoring the sexual and reproductive health needs of all people — young and old, rich and poor.
Including sexual and reproductive health in the Agenda confirms the importance of this aspect of health. Public health activities in the European Region must create the conditions under which people can improve their health and wellbeing, as set out in this Action Plan.
EUPHA supports the vision, goals and objectives of the Action Plan, which are consistent with a public health approach to the entire spectrum of health and wellbeing and not only sexual and reproductive health.
EUPHA wishes to express its solidarity with public health practitioners and researchers in the United Kingdom following the outcome on the Brexit referendum. EUPHA calls upon political leaders to ensure that during ensuing negotiations, safeguarding the health of citizens in the UK and in the rest of the European Union is considered as a priority.

In de picture from left to right: EUPHA enthusiastically welcomes the decision by the United Kingdom government to implement a tax on sugar sweetened beverages, adding to the welcome already expressed by our member organisation, the UK Faculty of Public Health.
EUPHA calls upon European governments to follow the approach taken by the UK government, as part of a comprehensive strategy against obesity and encourages the European public health community to learn from those activists in Berkeley who were so successful in standing up to powerful vested interests. Read the Press Release here. We encourage our member associations to distribute the press release in their own countries. The tobacco industry manufactures a product that will kill half of those who use it in the way that is intended.
Many institutional investors continue to invest in the tobacco industry. EUPHA believes that such engagement with the tobacco industry is futile. We see no evidence that the industry has changed its ways. Following the success of Tobacco Free Portfolios in Australia, we call upon institutional investors in Europe to follow the lead of a growing number of investors in Australia and publically disinvest in this disreputable and ultimately doomed industry.
EHII is a multi-stakeholder WHO network aimed at creating an integrated, harmonized health information system for the entire European Region by fostering international cooperation.

Ask them to urge the European institutions to ensure that the Regulation strikes an appropriate balance that protects the interests of individuals while enabling research that benefits us all.
We again call upon the governments of Europe to make this a priority at this challenging time, working individually and together to find an enduring solution to the crisis that has affected so many vulnerable people.
