The EHESP has adopted a continuous quality improvement policy for all its activities to provide the best possible service to all its users.
The EHESP is seeking recognition for its many skills and functions – it is a Public Health School, an International School, a Public Service School and a “grand établissement” (public research and higher education establishment) – and is committed to meeting the expectations of users in all these domains.
General Policy on Continuous Quality Improvement EHESP
The quality policy (pdf, 109 kb) defined by the EHESP’s management board is based on proposals from the steering committee for continuous quality improvement and concerns the whole of the school’s activities.
The quality approach that has been developed is global and relies on the dynamism of all entities within the EHESP. Quality is the product of the combined action of all those involved. Measures to assure quality can be seen in the schools’ education, research and consultancy activities, in particular the Laboratoire d’Étude et de Recherche en Environnement et Santé (LÉRES – Laboratory for study and research into the environment and health), etc.
