9th European Alcohol Policy Conference

donderdag 16 juni 2022 t/m vrijdag 17 juni 2022

Alcohol is a psychoactive substance with intoxicating and dependence-producing properties and dangerous health risks such as cancer and mental disorders, to name just a few. In Europe, the situation is bleak with the highest levels of alcohol consumption in the world, killing the equivalent of a large concert hall every day. The dramatic impact of alcohol harm starts early in the life course, responsible for 1 in every 4th death in the age group of 20–24-year-olds. In the past 10 years, scientific evidence for effective alcohol policies, such as higher prices, reduced availability and restrictions on marketing has accumulated and are actively promoted by the WHO. Despite this progress, the pace of development of adequate alcohol policies do not correspond to the magnitude of the problem. Alcohol industries deploy vast lobbying resources to prevent the introduction and implementation of effective measures to be put in place. At EU level, the internal market framework continues to encourage rather than hinder the promotion and sale of alcohol products, not only within Europe but also in low- and middle-income countries around the world. Awareness of alcohol related harm is still very low amongst the public, a situation perpetuated by the lack of effective and compulsory health warnings and alcohol products continue to be readily available and affordable. As a result, people in Europe continue to treat alcohol as an ‘ordinary’ commodity and continue to consume more alcohol than in any other part of the world. This conference will be a space in which speakers and participants with diverse experiences (researchers, policy makers, civil society organisations and academia) will be able to network, debate, question and place critical issues related to alcohol related harm polices and progress.

7th International Conference on Behavioral Addictions

We are pleased to announce that the 7th International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA) is due to take place from 20-22 June, 2022, in Nottingham, United Kingdom. In 2011 we launched the Journal of Behavioral Addictions, and two years later we organized the 1st International Conference on Behavioral Addictions (ICBA) in Budapest, Hungary, in order to provide a venue for face-to-face encounters, as well as a forum for scientific information exchange. After the conferences in Budapest (2013, 2015), Geneva (2016), Haifa (2017), Cologne (2018), and Yokohama (2019), in 2020 we are already organizing the seventh meeting. The conference will appeal to research scientists, clinicians, social workers, health service managers and others.

15th European Public Health Conference 2022

woensdag 9 november 2022 t/m zaterdag 12 november 2022

The theme of Berlin 2022 is ‘Strengthening health systems: improving population health and being prepared for the unexpected’. In the past years, we have learned from the Covid-19 pandemic that infectious diseases know no boundaries. Although we have seen the successful development of vaccines, we have also seen with the spread of the Delta and Omicron variants around the globe that these vaccines have not yet been available to everyone. At the conference, we want to explore ways in which the public health community can rally around the WHO health system framework to bring about better population health. The growing health inequalities around the globe leads to a simple conclusion: Europe must take on a more active role in global health. This includes taking a stand on expansive issues such as planetary health, climate change, environmental degradation, water and food security, migration, gender, and poverty. Europe must use its knowledge and influence to balance out market forces, expand regulatory oversight and create socially responsible systems for health, especially when it comes to the distribution of vaccines and essential medicines. Digitalization is a key area where recent developments require us to exchange ideas and come up with new approaches. The past decades have seen significant developments in data collection and processing capacity as well as eHealth applications. We need to ensure that the vast amounts of data generated are well protected on the one hand, but also being available and usable for public health interventions. We want the discussions at the 15th EPH Conference to contribute to resilient health systems, universal health coverage (UHC), a well-trained and highly qualified clinical and public health workforce, and governance structures that take a stand and shape health systems globally.
