Belgian Association of Public Health



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.

Upcoming events

On Friday, 20 May 2016, our members are cordially invited to our first Public Health Afternoon in Brussels.
This meeting will immediately follow the 4th edition of the Université de printemps francophone en santé publique.
Attendants to that meeting - organised by the Ecole de Santé Publique of the Université Libre de Bruxelles - will also be welcome to join our afternoon session.

Later this year, the Belgian Association of Public Health will join the Belgian Statistical Society (BSS/SBS/BVS) .
In conjunction with their 24th Annual Meeting at the Namur Palais des Congrès , we will have our 2016 Symposium on Public Health at the same place, on 13 October 2016.
More detailed information on the programme will be available through this website, and through mailings to our members.

Most recent meetings

On 1 June 2015, we had a workshop on Mental Public Health and Suicide in Brussels.
