Bringing Evidence into Public Health PolicyEPHP
The National Conference on bringing Evidence into Public Health Policy (EPHP) is a series of conferences that provide a unique national platform for public health researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to meet, share their experiences and learn from each other. For over half a decade now, the EPHP conferences have contributed to constructive public discourse on health in India. So far, there have been three conferences in the series focusing on specific themes (2010: Five Years of National Rural Health Mission; 2012: Strengthening Health Systems to Achieve Universal Health Coverage; 2016: Equitable India – All for Health and Wellbeing) organized jointly by the Institute of Public Health (Bengaluru) and the Institute of Tropical Medicine (Antwerp) in partnership with Government of India and Government of Karnataka.
