  • Background
  • Aims

The overall agenda of the conference will run along the three main categories of Determinants of health and wellbeing, Policies and public health and Data driven public health.

Determinants of health and wellbeing include social, environmental and commercial determinants. Within the category are the work on social sustainability, the sustainable development goals, private vs public partnerships and individualism vs materialism.

Policies within public health include health and wellbeing in all policies, both local and on governmental. It is important to learn from the experience in public health work and realize the close connection between policies and practice. This include health promotion at the local level, health in all policies, setting based health promotion and asset based public health.

Data driven public health focuses on what works and why by using measurements/monitoring and knowledge within the field. It is important to measure the right things and use the research and indicators that we have.
