Why should I attend?

Anyone interested in population health sciences is very welcome. Come and join us as we share information and network in a friendly and informal atmosphere.

Our three priorities are quality research, networking and career development (especially for early career researchers and mid-career researchers).

Our conference thus welcomes a range of research approaches (quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods) to address important issues in population health in its widest sense, spanning wellbeing, illness, and disease.


Who attends?

Last year the conference attracted over 500 participants from all over the world, ranging from senior academics to postgraduate students, with strong representation from the wider public health community. Disciplines ranged from epidemiology, health service research, psychology, public health and social sciences. We are thus a broad family, spanning a wide range of disciplines, including public health, epidemiology, social sciences, economics, psychology, health services research, disease prevention, policy and political science.
