Welcome to the German Public Health Association

The German Public Health Association

is an interdisciplinary and multiprofessional association of individuals, institutions, organizations and professional societies with jurisdiction and responsibility for teaching, research and practice in the field of public health. Our commitment serves the science and practice of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting physical and mental health while considering equitable distribution and efficient use of available resources. Increasing health inequalities, health consequences of changes in the world of work, the rise of antibiotic resistance or the consequences of climate change are just some of the current issues.
