16th World Congress on Public Health Statement: Public health for the future of humanity
The 16th World Congress on Public Health was held from 12 to 16 October 2020 as a virtual conference in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis. The theme of the Congress “Public health for the future of humanity: analysis, advocacy and action” was never as relevant as it was then. Public health professionals around the world were united working in solidarity for the common good and betterment of humankind, leading the scientific analysis and advice to decision makers, and in front lines practically tackling the ongoing COVID-19 emergency.
The Congress Statement calls for an investment in public health and care services and for collaboration together as citizens of one planet to deliver the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, all of which have implications for our health and wellbeing.
