2026 World Congress on Public Health

The World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) hosts the World Congress of Public Health (WCPH), the premier global public health meeting for public health practitioners, students, policy makers, researchers, academics, and advocates, to engage on current public health issues and contribute to protecting and promoting public health at local, regional  and global levels.

The Public Health Association of South Africa (PHASA) is proud to be co-hosting the 18th WCPH in September 2026, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in South Africa.

This will be the first WCPH to be held in South Africa, and we look forward to welcoming our local, regional, and global public health communities to Cape Town, South Africa in 2026.

Public health funding agencies, non-governmental and civil society organisations, academic institutions, and all organisations committed to the promotion of public health priorities and principles, are invited to contact the organisers to explore co-sponsorship opportunities for the conference (This email address is being protected from spambots.
