ASPHER's European List of Core Competences for the Public Health Professional
ASPHER is proud to announce the 5th Edition of ASPHER's European List of Core Competences for the Public Health Professional. The new edition was edited by Anders Foldspang, Christopher A. Birt and Robert Otok and the Council of ASPHER’s European Public Health Reference Framework (EPHRF). Advisory contributions were made from expert groups within: epidemiology and biostatistics; sociology; environmental health; health economics; leadership; nutrition; communicable disease prevention and control.
Population health and health systems change, as do public health practice, theory, terminology and scientific research methods. Thus, a list of public health competences needs to be developed continuously and the newly revised list seeks to address recent advancements.
Professionalization of the Public Health Workforce
ASPHER is actively engaged with efforts to professionalize Europe’s Public Health Work Force.
ASPHER is currently part of the Coalition of Partners in collaboration with WHO/Europe, APHEA and many other experts across the European Region. The CoP project includes the development of three key products to help guide professionalization: 1) A Roadmap towards Professionalisation of the Public Health Workforce; 2) A Core Competencies Framework for Public Health Workforce; and 3) Handbooks for Managing Public Health Professional Credentialing, and Accreditation Systems.
ASPHER also led on the development of the EU HPP Joint Statement on Public Health Workforce Development and Professionalisation in collaboration with various organisations and members of the EU Health Policy Platform (EU HPP) calling for a collaborative and consensus-building action on the continuing development and professionalisation of the public health workforce in Europe.
