What sets us apart from other EU public health NGOs is our membership and our audiences. We can proudly say that we are a people’s platform for public health – set up by people and for people.
Our Membership includes an array of organisations that represent vulnerable population groups, including children, older, the homeless, Roma communities, people living with AIDS, and those that suffer from substance abuse or gender-based violence. Our nurses, doctors and scientists are not with us to talk with each other. For that, they have their own professional associations. They are in EPHA to get involved in people’s voice, to talk with people and to work for people.

This includes non-governmental organisations and other not-for-profit organisations and professional bodies, whether local, regional, national, European or international:
