Two new publications explore public health law and strengthening public health capacity in Europe

Public health services have recently published two new documents, "Developing a framework for public health law in Europe" and  "Strengthening public health capacity and services in Europe. A concept paper".

The first publication advocates a common European understanding for the definition, scope and drafting process of public health law, and emphasizes the need for a clear philosophical framework. The second paper was written to inform ”Strengthening public health capacities and services in Europe: a framework for action”, which will accompany Health2020, the new European Health Strategy.
