OC - Opening Ceremony: Public health futures in a changing world

Moderators: Anthony Staines, Chair of the 14th EPH Conference 2021 and Regien Biesma-Blanco, Chair of the International Scientific Committee 2021


This session is the official opening session of the conference. European public health has had a difficult year. Across Europe the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic has not been entirely successful despite an enormous amount of hard work in public health units all across Europe. The past year has shown that we need to identify futures for our discipline. If we don’t, others will, and that is not necessarily for the benefit of our practice, our practitioners, or the public. If we are to be more than well trained technicians perhaps we need to articulate more forcibly who we are, why we are, and why we are relevant?

  • Stephen Donnelly, Minister of Health, Ireland
  • Robin Swann, Minister of Health, Northern Ireland

Moderator: Josep Figueras, Director European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies


The evidence base for this session will be a study by WHO Europe and the Observatory analyzing how well public health has responded to the pandemic. How did European countries perform in fighting the pandemic? Young professional will reflect from different perspectives: public health workforce skills and training, health equity, working across sectors, the role of social media. We will look into the future of our discipline: what is that we do well? What value do we bring? What skills do we need for now and for the future?
