Themes covered by the Open Conference

The organising committee will use the results of the voting to help inform the development of a balanced programme for the Open Conference that reflects the focus on  “Breaking down boundaries – innovation, participation and creativity in public health” and the themes of:

  1. Tackling poverty and inequality across the life cycle – innovative practices and interventions in the context of the delivery of programmes or services relevant to public health.
  2. Connecting evidence with public health policy – novel approaches with an emphasis on engagement, participation and multidisciplinary collaboration.
  3. How healthy are we? – research, policy and the creative arts as tools for advancing the public’s health.
