The Public Health Association of South Africa invites the South African  public health community and international colleagues to Johannesburg, South Africa for the 13th annual conference (PHASA 2017) due to take place 4-7th September. The theme of the 2017 conference is “A Global Charter for the Public’s Health”: Implications for Public Health Practice in South Africa.

Last year, the conference considered public health practices in the context of the SDGs. This year there will be a focus on the WFPHA/WHO collaboration “A Global Charter for the Public’s Health” and its implications for public health in South Africa, examining the four enabling functions of the Charter, viz. governance, capacity, information and advocacy. Conversations on how these four enabling functions can be strengthened in South Africa will be conducted as well as discussions on critical current issues like globalisation and decolonisation in relation to public health.
