Identifying and Applying Best Practices to Address Priority Public Health Issues through a ‘Determinants of Health’ Approach: the Experience of Public Health Associations
Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
The current global context differs significantly from that of the 20th century, and continues to evolve. Disease patterns have changed and continue to do so. The trends in urbanization, fast epidemiologic transition in low- and middle-income countries, changes in the roles of governments in relation to population health and health care demand a new way of thinking and acting with respect to public health.
This session will explore how national public health associations and the WFPHA are addressing priority and emerging public health issues within the increasingly complex socio-economic, political, demographic and epidemiological context.
