PUBLIC HEALTH FOR THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY:
ANALYSIS, ADVOCACY AND ACTION
The theme of the virtual WCPH 2020 remains Public Health for the Future of Humanity: Analysis, Advocacy, and Action, reflecting our firm commitment that we, in the global public health community, have an obligation to respond to the current coronacrisis and other emerging global challenges. As the world confronts the coronavirus, the sharing of science - especially the latest public health science - becomes ever more importtant, and the virtual WCPH 2020 is the event to do it. A dedicated COVID-19 track will be featured, covering the latest on the efficacy of policy measures, impact on health systems, etc. In our eight plenary sessions we will further explore the challenges posed by the corona pandemic and other threats.
