PPHW-TF

ASPHER-WHO/EURO Task Force on Professionalising the Public Health Workforce (PPHW-TF)

The Public Health Workforce Professionalisation (PPHW-TF) is pivotal to raising awareness and recognition of the public health profession in the European Region and globally. It is centred around such topics as: public health employment outcomes, licencing and credentialing, public health job taxonomy, public health workforce development and planning, public health education at graduate and post graduate levels including continuing professional development (CPD) training, public health codes of ethics and professional conduct, enumeration and professional self-government. More specifically, the field focuses also on capacity building, competency-based education and training, systematic development of competency frameworks, competency development, self-assessment methods and identification of skill gaps for the provision of essential public health operations. The field is system specific, dependent on the stakeholders and governance structures.
