This is Public Health (TIPH)
The Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) launched a new This is Public Health-Europe campaign challenge in 2019 to communicate the message of the importance of public health. The overall objective is to enhance the visibility of public health and opportunities for careers in public health careers for the benefit of our populations. Such an effort should also increase the level of interest among potential students to pursue public health education/training to reinforce the current public health workforce.
ASPHER sounded the rallying cry to build awareness by launching locally-driven campaigns during the 2019-2020 academic year. We’re challenging students, faculty and administrators at schools of public health around Europe to develop communications campaigns that help raise awareness about public health and how it affects our lives – of which we received a lot of excellent applications and are excited to be able to have had such a positive response for the call with a wide range of exciting and enriching proposals from our member schools.
We are happy to announce the 5 winners of the 2019 challenge, that will receive grants, which include:
- An award to execute the campaigns (maximum award: $5,000)
