About Raymond Gemen
Raymond combines the roles of Senior Policy Manager for Health Inequalities and EPHA’s Communications Coordinator. The work on health inequalities revolves around the development and implementation of EPHA’s Health Inequalities advocacy strategy. By working together with EPHA members and key stakeholders, the goal is to bring about (policy) change for the people who are left behind. Simultaneously, the Communications Coordination strengthens both the advocacy work across the policy clusters and the impact of EPHA as change agent and convenor of stakeholders. Raymond holds a BSc degree in Biology and an MSc degree in Nutrition & Health, and has previous experience in science communication at EUFIC and science-based policy support at the EC Joint Research Centre. He enjoys spending his free time outside, preferably active and with the family; running, cycling, walking (often thinking how to do more on tackling climate change), playing football, and gardening.
EPHA is a change agent – Europe’s leading NGO alliance advocating for better health. We bring together the public health community to provide thought leadership and enable change; to build public health capacity to deliver equitable solutions to European public health challenges, such as air pollution, more affordable medicines, and the need for health-enabling food systems, to improve health and reduce health inequalities. As a member-led organisation, made up of public health NGOs, patient groups, health professionals and disease groups, we work with relevant policy and decision makers to strengthen the voice of public health in Europe.
