Health of a population determines its productivity, longevity and hence is closely related to the overall working of the state. Public health and its policies form a large chunk of volatile laws, which affect all residents. We, as the EST Working Group for Public Health and Policies, analyse and assess the role of public health in the EU, and how we can help make it more accessible and equitable.

Subtopics can comprise: 

  • Hospital management as response to COVID-19
  • Public health sustainability, public policy to tackle inequalities
  • How health policies affect a country’s economy
  • Importance of a dynamic policy system
  • EU-united by effect, divided by response
  • Technology in disease mitigation
  • Why funding matters
