EPHA PDP 2014 provides a chance for young professionals working primarily in health-related organisations or civil society organisations to:

  • Build up the advocacy skills that make a successful advocate
  • Get better equipped to work with an EU Presidency and the Council
  • Gain insight on how to build effective coalitions at EU level
  • Foster drafting skills when writing press statements
  • Learn how to make use of Twitter as an efficient advocacy tool in Brussels

The skills that are developed in the PDP are based on EPHA’s practical experience of advocating for a European Civil Society network at EU level.


** The PDP is FREE for participants from EPHA MEMBER organisations - except travel and accommodation costs. For NON-EPHA MEMBER organisations, the participation fee is 150 € per person. Although most of the examples will be health-related, the skills that are developed can be used in most civil society organisations.

"EPHA’s programme is a great way of scratching beneath the surface of EU policy-making, whilst at the same time, meeting people with similar roles across Brussels. Perfect for those wanting to work in the areas of health policy or communications," Fay Watson Secretary General, Europe Against Drugs.
