The Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region Core Curriculum Programme is a vital capacity and curriculum building project. Development of core public health competencies has been a common theme within ASPHER’s operations since 2006. In 2022, it was agreed that a new direction was required.The Core Curriculum Programme strives to address the new normal which has enveloped the public health landscape after the global pandemic of COVID-19 and other crises.

ASPHER's vision of sustainable capacity-building in public health is more important than ever in the context of current population health challenges and threats. It is timely, therefore, to re-evaluate the 5th Edition of the ASPHER Core Competences for the Public Health Professional published in 2018, and to move towards agreeing a Core Curriculum in Public Health for academic and vocational training programmes that supports the attainment of competency according to existing Competency Frameworks and Essential Public Health Operations (EPHOs).

The Core Curriculum Programme relies on continuous connection, knowledge sharing and collegiality across many academic and public health practice sites across the globe both within and outside of the European region.
