12th European Public Health Conference in Marseille, France

Building bridges for solidarity and public health


20 – 23 NOVEMBER 2019





Health is regarded more and more as a wide societal concern. The public health community has responded to this challenge by building bridges with professionals from other domains of society: food, transport, social services, environment, etc. Marseille has for centuries been one of gateways for people crossing the Mediterranean but, in recent years, that journey has been characterized by tragedies among those seeking a better livelihood in Europe. The Marseille conference offers an opportunity to build new bridges: of working together between the public health communities in Europe and Africa, seeking solutions to our shared challenges as inhabitants of a small planet now facing global threats, from climate change, emerging infections, and the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases.


The theme for the 12th EPH Conference is ‘Building bridges for solidarity and public health’.Plenary sessions are organized around the following themes:

  • Building bridges for migration in a planetary context.
  • Solidarity for public health – integrating poverty, conflict and other threats to health.
  • Building bridges between professions.
  • New roles for public health practice.
  • Building global bridges between public health communities.




Abstract submission is open until 1 May 2019. Abstracts are invited for workshops, oral presentations, pitch presentations and E-posters. A specific track has been created for Digital Health. Prizes will be awarded for the best oral, poster and early career professional’s presentation. Do not miss the opportunity to be recognised for your hard work.

This year’s EPH Conference in Marseille will feature a full track on Digital Health, which will be developed in collaboration with the International Digital Public Health (DPH) Conference series. The Digital Public Health Conferences are world leading annual interdisciplinary events aiming to improve public health through the application of novel technology at the personal, community and global levels. They are unique in bringing together audiences from public health, computer and data science, MedTech industry and international NGOs.
For those with work of a technical focus (e.g. computer science, data science, big data systems and analysis, development of technology), we recommend submitting your paper/abstract through the DPH submission system. Deadline for submissions is 25 May 2019.
For those with a public health, medical, practice-based focus (e.g. healthcare systems, training, policy), we advise submitting your abstract through the EPH Conference system, under the dedicated ‘Digital Health’ Track. Deadline for submissions is 1 May 2019.
