Who we are
We are a group of local health authorities and municipalities managers, general practitioners and specialists, sociologists, psycologists, biologists, lawyers, economists and architects who started in 1985 to study health promotion as a common house and equity in health as the result of the delicate balance between rights&budgets. At that time we created the Italian Institute for Quality of Life and in 2010, 25 years after, with people from almost all European Countries, we created the Equity in Health Institute as a part of it.
With our work a local health authorities, universities, national associations of municipalities and public health agencies network started to apply health promotion and equity in health criteria on a large scale.
We think that a debate about the European Public Health System could start: we don’t think that health promotion and equity in health can effectively arise only from an intergovernmental approach and that no public health system could be imaged without them.
To dream, to fight, to hope
As each of us is free to choose his own dreams, fights and hopes, so Europe is. In health field we choose to dream to better understand the interactions and not only the actions, to be able to build true viewpoints and not only views of individual points, to be able to make paintings and not only frames,

Debate about EPHS
In Europe there are very strong differences in public health (life expectancy differences between nations up to 15 years, health share of GDP ranging from 3.8% to 9%, etc...).As a result a uniform regulatory system is highly required.
