Real World Engagement:
Schools of Public Health and
Challenges of Public Health
September 28 - October 1, 2002
Conference venue:
“A. Stampar” School of Public Health
Zagreb, Croatia
Second Announcement
Address by Professor Andrija Stampar delivered at the First World
Health Assembly in Geneva on June 25th, 1948, when elected as its President
Medical science must adopt a positive rather than a defensive attitude.
Great tasks await the World Health Organization in this field and its
future success will largely depend on its ability to put ideas into practice.
It is evident that the World Health Organization cannot be just a health
administration placed above the national health administrations, but by
an exchange of ideas, a correct attitude and by propagation of
experience it can do very much in this respect...
Since their beginning, the European schools of public health have been closely engaged in
solving the problems of the communities. During the early decades of the 20th century, the
problems they were facing were mostly the issues of physical environment, and poor
knowledge of citizens in preserving health. Today, the problems are not less frequent nor
difficult but are of different type and quality.
Today, public health takes place within a context of international population migration that
has direct impact on health and health care services. The issue of citizens rights and the
overall NGO sector becomes a great part of everyday health care delivery and, therefore, is
a topic of high importance for public health in the 21st century.
The 24th ASPHER Conference will try to address several questions. What mechanisms do
exist to monitor and respond to global world changes? What impact will the European open
borders have on health care services and citizens expectations? How should health
professionals and policy makers respond? Responses to these issues take place at the
global and regional level, and challenge citizens, academics and policy makers. This is a
call for action and for changes.
How can SPHs contribute and get involved into the dynamics of postmodern real world?
What is the new role of schools of public health in today's real world environment?
Major topics of the conference:
I ROLE AND EXPERIENCE OF SPH IN PRIMARY HEALTH CARE DEVELOPMENT
· Role of SPH in GP development
· Environment protection as a tool in health promotion
· New challenges for health at work
· Future trends in primary health care development
II ROLE OF SPH IN CIVIL SOCIETY DEVELOPMENT
· Public health, human rights and health
· Public advocacy - SPHs as the advocates of those in need
· SPH as the bridge between health professionals, media experts and a general
public
· NGO sector empowerment - SPH and NGO sector capacity building
III ROLE OF SPH IN HEALTH POLICY DEVELOPMENT:
· Evidence based health policy
· SPH and GEMS (Global Environment Monitoring System)
· Preventive health care policies
· Health and market - challenges for health policy
IV KNOWLEDGE FOR HEALTH AND KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY
· Communication as a determinant for health
· Multiprofessional training in public health and networking in Europe
· Challenges of the new technologies in public health education, information and
communication (new teaching and assessment methods, distance learning, etc.)

History and settings of the “A. Stampar” School of Public
Health
The “A. Stampar" School of Public Health is a part of the Medical School,
University of Zagreb. In 2002, this unique institution both in the past and the
present of Croatia will celebrate 75 years of continuous efforts in the field of
public health, oriented towards research, education and implementation of
developed strategies in hygienic and public health policies. In the changing and
sometimes extremely turbulent times of the Croatian history, the “A. Stampar”
School of Public Health managed to remain the most important actor in public
health issues.
The School was founded in 1926 by a group of outstanding public health workers
led by Dr A. Stampar (1888-1958), a physician, a social and hygiene medicine
expert, and a public health organizer. The School's main efforts during the first
period were concentrated on the extensive field work on the investigation of the
environmental health condition and on organization of health campaigns, such as
health education, endemic disease control (malaria), rural sanitation. Later, the
School became actively involved in many international projects, such as
education for management, consultancy, cooperation with the WHO, Rockefeller
Foundation and others, and became actively engaged in the formation of
postgraduate education for all profiles of professionals in primary health care (one
of the first vocational training courses in the world for GPs and school medicine
specialists). It started slowly to transform from a popular public health institution
into more scientifically oriented public health teaching facility.
Now, at the beginning of the new millennium, the “A. Stampar” School of Public
Health is taking on new challenges. The School has also become a leading
partner in national and international projects. These projects will enable the “A.
Stampar” School of Public Health to become the leader in public health education
for the region of Southeastern Europe.
The 20th century was the century of public health issues. Today, when we are
looking back to the past and embrace the new challenges in public health, the “A.
Stampar” School of Public Health stands out as a memento of that period, the
century that brought back great achievements in vaccination efforts and control of
infectious diseases, food and water supply safety, improvements in workplace
conditions, family planning and brought to our attention the issues related to heart
disease, stroke and tobacco use.
