PUBLIC HEALTH

A par das missões dos governos e da academia, a Fundação Serra Henriques procura ser uma instituição ágil na criação de sinergias em rede e promover políticas públicas nos domínios da qualidade de vida das pessoas.

Através da colaboração com a Direcção-Geral da Saúde, Faculdades de Medicina e Centros Hospitalares, a Fundação apoia a organização de conferências, congressos, núcleos de investigação e a divulgação de boas práticas em Saúde Pública.


On the World Oral Health Day took place the public presentation of this publication that is the result of the cooperation between the Serra Henriques Foundation, the Directorate-General of Health, the Lisbon Hospital Centre and the National Network of School Libraries.

From this initiative, in-between Health and Education, an innovative project was born, seeking to introduce good practice into the population's behaviour and a determinant commitment in the prevention of sickness and the promotion of health in Portugal.

This project's calling is that of rendering inevitable the integration of the subject of oral health into school's programmes, allowing for an approach to the different subjects that is more competent and effective.

This book invites a direct interaction with the reader by means of a mirrored surface, allowing the child to auto assess his or her oral hygiene. The work also provides information about oral diseases and its consequences, and promotes good health practice.

The interdependencies of hygiene and the promotion of reading in health plans are unquestionable, being the reason why the Serra Henriques Foundation decided to edit this important tool and optimize its impact in a joint effort with the different entities of the ministries of Health and Education.


No quadro da cooperação académica com as universidades portuguesas, a Fundação Serra Henriques é parceiro institucional e apoia a organização do congresso MedUBI que acolhe 900 alunos de Medicina.

A Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI) foi fundada em 1986 e engloba um conjunto de Faculdades com 7200 alunos, colocando a Covilhã e a região numa posição de destaque no que concerne ao conhecimento científico e artístico. Tal decorre, não só do ensino ministrado, mas também da investigação efectuada nos diversos departamentos e unidades de investigação. 


The Serra Henriques Foundation, the city of Oporto and the Portuguese Order of Physicians are the institutional partners of the 2017 Young European Scientist Meeting, which features the participation of four hundred young investigators within the biomedical sphere, from twenty-five different countries.


The main goal is to gather world-class scientists in Porto who will present major discoveries in five different areas: Internal Medicine, Neurosciences, Oncology & Molecular Biology, Physiology & Immunology, and Surgery.


The congress takes place in the University of Porto between the 14th and the 17th of September, with the High Patronage of the President of the Portuguese Republic and the European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation.
