Global Public Health Week (GPHW) 4-8 April 2022

Global Public Health Week (GPHW) is an initiative of the World Federation of Public Health Associations that aims bringing together institutions, communities, and public health actors from around the world to recognize the contributions of public health and its workforce.

This first edition of GPHW will take place on 4 – 8 April 2022 with the theme “Public Health Matters: building the new future”

In addition to the week’s theme, each day will focus in a specific theme :

  • Monday, 4 April : Building COVID-19 resilience
  • Tuesday, 5 April : Reversing climate disaster
  • Wednesday, 6 April : Achieving health equity 
  • Thursday, 7 April : Strengthening public health associations and communities
  • Friday, 8 April : Preventing the next pandemic
