Advancing the Public Health Advocacy: A Manifesto
ASPHER and EPHA in the context of the 17th World Congress on Public Health launched a manifesto calling for 'UNITED PUBLIC HEALTH ACTION AND ADVOCACY CENTRED ON: PEOPLE AND PLANET, EVIDENCE, TRUST, PARTNERSHIP, INVESTMENT.'
The Manifesto includes five actionable points in order to advance public health universally and advocate for the common good.
Syllabi collection on Diversity in Public Health
These syllabi provide hands-on material for people engaged in public health education on health inequities, social injustices and diversity enabling students to:
- identify mechanisms of privilege and oppression related to social identities,
- determine awareness of one’s own social identities and their relevance in the public health landscape,
- learn how to determine biases within public health structures (and oneself),
- address and change biases in their practices to ultimately reduce health inequities.

Professionalization Road Map
Road Map to Professionalizing the Public Health Workforce
ASPHER and WHO have launched the Road Map to Professionalizing the Public Health Workforce. This Road Map offers pragmatic recommendations for action to professionalize the public health workforce as a response to growing public health needs; it puts forward levers that can be engaged to do so. It embraces, by necessity, a cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary approach that provides clarity about the scope and the specific competencies required, identifies key action areas for professionals and identifies the roles of the various actors.
The Roadmap works in synergy with the WHO-ASPHER Competency Framework for the Public Health Workforce, part of the ongoing ASPHER Programme for Public Health Competencies
