The 11th European Public Health conference is taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia between the 28th November and 1st December 2018.
“At the Ljubljana conference, we wish to point out the importance of developing partnerships at all levels and across different actors to improve the health of the population. Partnerships are especially relevant in the local community, where people live and work. It is of the utmost importance that decision makers, professionals from different sectors and nongovernmental organizations work together in establishing population wellbeing through different levers, among others through more favourable living conditions and through comprehensive health promotion, and thus jointly contribute to better health for all. Through the plenary sessions, this vision is further explored.”
