About The Congress

The World Congress on Public Health (WCPH) is held every two or three years by the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA). This time the Congress is organized by WFPHA together with the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPHER) and the Italian Society of Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and Public Health (SItI) and it will take place in Rome from 2 to 6 May 2023

In Rome, we are expecting to attract over 3.000 delegates.

The Congress serves as an international forum for the exchange of knowledge and experiences on key public health issues, contributing towards protecting and promoting public health at a national and global level.

The theme of the Congress is “A World in Turmoil: Opportunities to Focus on the Public’s Health”. It reflects the global health community’s commitment to work together in and outside of our respective fields to promote health equity and build a more sustainable and just future.
