This year, General Assembly was very special: first time ever online and everyone behind a screen. This has never happened in the history of our Association. But the world lives a special moment in these days, this is not only for the Public Health community, but it touches all and everyone and global public health is now at the center of discussions.

We say thank you to Laetitia Rispel for her two years of presidency and leadership with a special focus on equity and governance; we wish her a good time as past president.

We say a warm welcome to Walter Ricciardi our incoming president. As Public Health professional he has shown to act also on the political side of Public Health, so much needed.

We also have the pleasure to congratulate our Brazilian friend Luis Eugenio de Sousa as president-elect. I am convinced to have a good presidential team: important to put public health where it should be: on top of the agenda!

Prof. Bettina Borisch,
Executive Director
World Federation of Public Health Associations
