About EPHP

The EPHP conferences provide a unique platform for Indian 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 provide a unique platform where Indian public health researchers, policymakers and practitioners meet, learn from each other and shape the future. In the past, we have hosted two EPHP conferences. In 2010, the first conference’s theme was Five years of NRHM where public health researchers from various backgrounds and experiences met and discussed about different areas in NRHM. Two years later, in 2012, the second EPHP conference theme was Strengthening health systems to achieve universal health coverage that helped bring out interesting discussions about universal health coverage and what is India’s take on it. In 2016, we are hosting the third conference with the following objectives in mind.

Conference objectives

Bring together and promote interactions among researchers, policymakers and practitioners across sectors and disciplines whose work shape public health in India.
Deliberate and disseminate experiences with regard to major cross-cutting issues shaping health and public health action in India: health (in)equity, social determinants of health, effective health governance, and inter-sectoral action for health.

Thematic areas

Under the overall theme Equitable India: All for Health and Wellbeing, the conference will focus on the following sub-themes

Equity in health and healthcare

  • How have reforms in different health system domains (Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana, National Health Mission, draft National Health Policy 2015 etc.) impacted equity in access to health care and health outcomes in India?
  • What can we learn from interventions that impacted health equity in India? These could include the interventions across sectors impacting one or more axes of inequities in health including but not limited to caste, gender, social position/status, income, sexual orientation and other social vulnerabilities.
  • What role for healthcare providers and managers in creating equitable health services?
  • What can we learn from ever evolving frameworks, methods and tools to better understand and assess health inequities in India?

From better knowledge to improved policies and practice

  • What can research offer to policymakers and implementers?  What is needed, what is demanded, what is lacking?
  • What is the role of advocacy? What can we learn from knowledge brokers and policy champions?
  • How can researchers, policymakers and practitioners unite forces to contribute to health and wellbeing in a more equitable India?

Intersectoral action for health

  • What is the rationale for intersectoral action for health?
  • What can we learn from examples of intersectoral action for health in India?
  • How to develop and maintain intersectoral action for health in India, and what is the role of health authorities in working across and between sectors?
  • How to integrate top-down and bottom-initiatives, policies and community initiatives for health and wellbeing in India?
  • How to improve health governance and operationalize a Health-in-All Policies approach in India?

Organisers

Institute of Public Health (India) in collaboration with Institute of Tropical Medicine (Antwerp, Belgium) are organising the third national conference on bringing Evidence into Public Health Policy
