The Jordan Public Health Forum (JPHF) is a national, non-profit initiative established to foster dialogue and to engage stakeholders across Jordan in addressing national public health trends and challenges. The forum’s members represent health institutions, advocacy groups, decision makers, public health experts, private sector, academia, government, and non-governmental entities, in addition to other involved stakeholders from intersectoral spheres.
The forum provides a space for active communication among different stakeholders across Jordan to help in bridging the health system with other involved sectors towards building closer intersectoral connections. The intellectual and inclusive nature of the forum is derived from the Forum’s dialogue, activities, and consideration of public and private sector data, all leading to better insights and actionable recommendations for policy and decision makers. The forum aims to enhance knowledge and information available for reference to the public, partners, and policy makers by providing evidence-based publications available through multiple media outlets.
