WHO Coalition Of Partners CoP

The third meeting of the Coalition of Partners (CoP) is took place the 27-28 November 2018 ahead of the EPH conference in Ljubljana. The meeting included representatives from countries throughout the European Region and was used to disseminate information on three key documents put together as a joint action between ASPHER, WHO Europe and APHEA working toward the professionalisation of the public health workforce.

These include:
1) A Roadmap towards Professionalisation of the Public Health Workforce in the European Region to help countries navigate a unique pathway to professionalisation;
2) Core Competencies Framework for Public Health Workforce in the European Region to enable a shared understanding and standards for the role of public health professionals; and
3) Handbooks for Managing Public Health Professional Credentialing, and Accreditation Systems in the European Region to provide formal pathways to accrediting and credentialing the workforce.

This meeting follows up on the Expert Meeting held at Imperial College London in June 2018, which brought together expert participants from a variety of backgrounds (ministries of health, national institutes, accreditation and credentialing bodies, schools of public health, public health organizations) and selected peer reviewers who provided invaluable feedback to strengthen the documents to make them more useful to end-users and stakeholders and harmonize the distinct products.
