Answer our call for abstracts and be considered for an ASPHER Award!

We are putting out a call for abstracts to propose interventions in three areas:

1. Short proposals to address specific challenges faced by our members. For example, but not limited to organisational changes in schools of public health; ongoing challenges of education and training with Covid; war context (i.e., updating curriculum, integration of war refugees/training continuity); you name it.

2. Presentations of member school/programme good practices in the following areas: (a) undergraduate programmes; (b) PhD-DrPH/doctoral programmes & research capacities; (c) specialist training & continuing professional development.

3. Presentations of member school/programme good practices in the following areas: (a) climate and health education; (b) diversity & intersectionality; (c) big data & modelling for public health decision-making.

As an added incentive, if your abstract meets the criteria of one of the ASPHER Awards, we will put you or your programme into consideration to receive a 2022 Award!

For more information or to nominate a candidate, see the call for award nominations here.

Abstracts do not need to follow a formal format, but should clearly outline the idea proposed.

Please send your abstract proposals by 4 September to sofia2022@aspher.org.
