PROPHE aims to be as inclusive as possible geographically. It gathers and welcomes data, laws, and other documents from all countries. It likewise will encourage serious research wherever it can, whether for in-depth analysis of national cases or comparisons across countries, including the striking yet atypical U.S. case.
PROPHE depends heavily on its network of members. Collaborating with PROPHE's director, these scholars operate as a group, with overlapping yet autonomous agendas, frameworks, and methods. PROPHE also has a mission in building a global base of young scholars.
