Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak

The WFPHA supports World Health Organisation’s (WHO) call that the public health community should play an active role in ensuring that we present facts, and that our actions do not generate fear, misinformation, stigma and discrimination. As the WFPHA, we believe that the experience of COVID-19 should be used to strengthen public health systems in all countries of the world. We believe that this system strengthening should be done in line with the key elements of the Federation’s Global Charter of the Public’s Health. The Charter emphasises disease prevention, health promotion and protection, through enabling governance, education and training, knowledge, information and intelligence, and advocacy for health, equity and social justice.
