The Epidemiology and Public Health Section has a long history of high calibre exchange of expertise in the field of research by putting together experts from all over the world, who encourage and share information with the younger members. Many of today’s leaders in psychiatric epidemiology have themselves benefited from this exchange themselves. The global outreach of the WPA has rendered this section truly exceptional since its members are locally active in their respective countries and regions thus offering a truly international perspective of epidemiology and public health.
