Host - National School of Public Health

The National School of Public Health, one of the first Schools of Public Health in Europe, was founded as Athens School of Hygiene in 1929 by the then Prime Minister Eleftherios Venizelos and the Ministers Alexandros Pappas and Apostolos Doxiades, following the recommendation of the League of Nations. The School was founded as a higher education institution with the mission to “promote post-graduate studies and research in public health”. Throughout the years the School has played a crucial role in the history of Public Health and Health Services in Greece, with major contributions in treating infectious diseases, such as dengue fever, malaria and tuberculosis and the more recent AIDS pandemic. The School responsive to its role as a leader in Public Health education was further reinforced by subsequent legislative acts which aimed to improve its institutional operational framework under the name of the “National School of Public Health”. Within this new framework additional scientific fields have been added since then aiming on education, research and action for Public Health and Social Policy issues.
