The Belgian Association of Public Health (BAPH) is a scientific, not-for-profit organization. It aims to create links, interaction and synergy for better public health practice and research. Through its dissemination and discussion fora, researchers and practitioners are networked for mutual complementarity.

Members of the BAPH are professionals working on issues that affect the community and public health, be they public health practitioners or researchers and academics. Members have ties to all Francophone and Flemish universities, and membership is also open to public health students.

The Association is open to any person who, by their work or skills, can provide effective support to the study or practice of public health.

Our Activities

Each year, the BAPH organizes or co-organizes one or more scientific events to promote public health debates based on scientific knowledge, expertise and professional experience.

The BAPH develops a network that creates links and synergies and helps researchers and students find resources, internships, etc.

Finally, the BAPH informs its members of scientific events as well as the publication of new articles in the journal Archives of Public Health, a scientific journal of public health linked to the association. It is an open access journal, and published articles are available in full text on the journal’s website.
