Special Interest Sections are the primary professional units of the Association and conduct activities that promote the mission and fulfill the goals of IPHA. Sections create a variety of opportunities for member involvement, making the IPHA experience richer for those who choose to interact with their Sections.
IPHA has 8 Sections that represent major public health disciplines or public health programs. These Sections allow members with shared interests to come together to develop scientific program content and policy resolutions in their areas of interest or fields of practice, and they provide for professional and social networking, career development and mentoring.
To be an active Section member, an individual must have a current membership in IPHA. Anyone who is a member of IPHA may become a member of two Sections.
