The next Meeting of the SEE will be special as it always is when the call for a meeting is made together with SESPAS, and particularly when it is going to be held in a city like Granada. (Download the PDF poster.)
This time additional circumstances will make it more interesting as the Portuguese epidemiologists are joining us to hold their Annual Epidemiology Meeting with the collaboration of the IEA and the Latin American Alliance of Epidemiology and Public Health. The Congress motto: “Science and practice of Health policies: the intelligence of Public Health” encourages a scientific contribution committed to the population undergoing the present crisis.
In Granada, from 3rd to 6th September we aim to put forward proposals for effective public health policies. There is no doubt that a good scientific basis is necessary, but we also need good standards for a good practice of public health, suitable analysis of the social determinants of global health and their influence at all levels. Of course, we need to create new ideas, which contribute to the intellectual debate about the essential social and democratic organization necessary for maintaining and improving the health of the population.
Please let your colleagues around the world know about this congress and we hope to see you in Granada 2013.
