The EPH Conference Foundation was founded on 23 May 2013 and from its start the Foundation has been committed to clear governance and transparency. For this purpose it has developed a Code of Good Practice EPH Conference. The purpose of the Code is to organise the relationship between the Foundation and partners including commercial contributors and to provide an ethical and positive approach to co-operation and partnership. 

The objective of the EPH Conference Foundation is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of public health in the European region through capacity building and knowledge building and all related, belonging and/or beneficial to this object in the largest definition possible.

The Foundation tries to achieve this objective through, inter alia, holding scientific conferences on public health in Europe at regular intervals at the initiative of the European Public Health Association. The Foundation does not aim to make a profit. 

The Foundation wants to be a trustworthy partner for its delegates, its partners, and its commercial contributors. Collaboration with partners and commercial contributors will be based on the principles of transparency and independence.

  • Transparency: information about the collaboration will be openly communicated.
  • Independence: the collaboration will not compromise the objective of the Foundation.

Partners and commercial contributors working with the Foundation are expected to follow the Code of Good Practice. Read the full Code of Good Practice here.
