BAPH - Home

The Belgian Association of Public Health (BAPH) is a scientific organisation of research groups and institutions, health workers and policy makers who are active in the field of public health.
The aims of the association are:

  • to increase the knowledge in different domains of public health
  • and to stimulate public health research

You are welcome to (re)join the Belgian Association of Public Health by registering your membership.

Therefore the association organises an annual meeting.
Every two years, this is under the form of a national Symposium on Public Health.
The years between the Symposia, there is a thematic scientific meeting (or Workshop), often in collaboration with a university.
