2015

The IPH Open Conference took place on 13th October 2015 in Croke Park, Dublin.

The Conference provided a platform for people from all sectors (statutory, academia, community and voluntary etc), North and South, to present on an area of interest to the wider public health audience.

The programme was finalised and developed by the participants, through online registration and this approach gave the opportunity to present on one of five broad areas of priority in public health. All communication was facilitated through this website.
