The 'Centre for Effective Public Health In the larger Rotterdam area' is the collaborative centre for the municipal Public Health Service Rotterdam (GGD Rotterdam-Rijnmond) and the department of Public Health of Erasmus MC. From 2004 onwards, CEPHIR fosters innovations in public health and strengthens the evidence base for public health policy and practice.

CEPHIR has three principal tasks:

  • exchange of knowledge and ideas between researchers, policymakers and practitioners on current issues in public health.
  • research that contribute directly to the population health policy program in Rotterdam.
  • advice for organisations in Rotterdam and adjacent municipalities in its program "Klein maar Fijn" on effectiveness, instruments, or implementation strategies of public health activities.
