    The second edition of the Global Community Health Annual Workshop will take place on 28, 29 and 30 June 2022 online. The International Union for Health Promotion and Education is proud to be partnering and participating in this year's events!

    The main theme of this year’s workshop is ‘How to build resilient communities for times of crisis’. The theme will be explored through different sub-themes, such as emergency health and social protection, offering a broad perspective on the diversity of practices of community health worldwide. The workshop provides a space where community health and health promotion practitioners and policy makers can improve their skills and where researchers can gain in capacities to conduct community-based participatory research.

    The workshop is free of charge! Practitioners, students, policy makers and researchers from all over the world are welcome to join. Participants will also have their efforts credited by a certificate of attendance delivered by the UNESCO Chair and will be able to claim credit towards registration (or re-registration) as professionals through the IUHPE Accreditation System.

    The Tū Mai:  Rongoā Māori Symposium reflects a pivotal time in the recognition of the mana of Rongoā Māori by the health and disability sector in Aotearoa.  This Symposium was inspired through working with the Rongoā Māori community as part of a Health Research Council-funded project, Te Ao Rauropi: Mapping the Biosphere of Rongoā Māori.

    The Ministry of Health, Accident Compensation Corporation, the interim Māori Health Authority, Whakauae Research Services and Rongoā communities have partnered to host this Symposium.  Current perspectives on the place of Rongoā as a taonga tuku iho in our collective commitment to improve health equity for all New Zealanders will be shared.

    In May 2023, over 3000 public health professionals and researchers, policymakers, and students will convene in Rome, Italy, for the 17th World Congress on Public Health, a momentous event organised by the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) in association with the Italian Society of Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Public Health (SItI) and the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER).


    The 17th World Congress on Public Health coincides with a critical juncture for our world. The COVID19 pandemic has indelibly altered our planet and our lives, exacerbating existing inequalities and alerting us to the threats of an unsustainable mode of production. Conflicts worldwide, from Ukraine to Afghanistan, from Syria to Ethiopia — to cite a few — have further destabilised the world, alongside the devastating consequences felt by all those directly affected. And together with the pandemic and the war, we have failed to mitigate the effects of climate change — the pandemic itself a potential consequence — with environmental disasters growing in frequency and impact. We are undoubtedly living in a world in turmoil.
