    “A new nationwide program for public health is in the making,” announced the Surgeon General at the Faculty of Public Health of the University of Debrecen.
     
    Surgeon General Tamás Szentes appointed Hungarian Association of Public Health Training and Research Institutions at the Debrecen conference of the latter to prepare a new national public health program.
     
    “Creating a new national public health program is a huge task for our country, for implementing which Office of the Chief Medical Officer of State has asked this association to be its partner in the process. We wish to build upon an organization which comprises the relevant experts who can be in charge of establishing the right strategy. We only have a few months to complete this assignment and then we need to come up with results as soon as possible in order to improve the currently less than ideal health condition of the population of Hungary,” said Tamás Szentes at the opening of the conference held on August 31 at Faculty of Public Health of the University of Debrecen.

    The organization called Hungarian Association of Public Health Training and Research Institutions was established ten years ago, and today it incorporates as many as thirty member institutions.
     
    “These institutions include national and university-based institutes in addition to Debrecen’s Faculty of Public Health, the only institution of higher education of this kind in Hungary. The Faculty of Public Health of the University of Debrecen plays a significant part in this cooperation, since it conducts projects in virtually all the fields of public health, ranging from the prevention of diseases through occupational health and safety issues to the utilization of genetic research findings,” said Professor Róza Ádány, President of HAPHTR.
     
    At the conference held at the Faculty of Public Health of UD, there is going to be more than sixty presentations altogether, delivered in as many as eight different sections before September 2 on a wide variety of topics, including the mental health of schoolchildren, the level of the knowledge of young Hungarians about resuscitation and first aid, and the typical diseases homeless people in Hungary most often suffer from.
