Membership

As a global professional association, the IUHPE's major strength lies in the quality of skills and knowledge of our membership, and the capabilities of the Regional Offices and Headquarters in securing partnerships and resources to enable the organisation to pursue its goals.

 

Members range from government bodies, to universities and institutes, to NGOs and individuals across all continents working to advance public health through health promotion and health education. Acknowledging the different needs of our diverse membership, the IUHPE is willing and able to adapt its services to better respond to each.
