Senta Depuydt

President of Children’s Health Defense Europe

Senta Depuydt is a Belgian journalist and health freedom activist. She has a bachelor degree in Law from the Université Saint-Louis in Brussels and a licenciate degree in Communication sciences and journalism from the Université Catholique de Louvain, in Louvain-la-Neuve (1992). After working several years in marketing and communications for international companies she started a family and experienced the autistic regression of one of her children. Fortunately she also had the immense blessing of witnessing his full recovery with appropriate biomedical and educational interventions.

With the desire to share her experience and help other parents, she organized the European Congress ‘Congrès sortir de l’autisme’ in Paris, in 2016. Testimonials, helpful medical practice and new scientific research in autism were presented for the first time to the French autism community, with interventions from Nobel Prize winner prof. Luc Montagnier, prof. Martha Herbert or Dr. Natasha Campbell. She subsequently hosted or participated to many autism conferences in French speaking countries. In February 2017, she organized vaccine safety debates with the premiere of Vaxxed at the EU parliament, in Brussels and in Paris, but had to relocate events when lobby groups pressured politicians to censor them. In spite of this she hosted the event ‘Autism : A New Paradigm’ at UNESCO in Paris the
following year (May 2018).

Senta works with vaccine free choice organizations across all Europe and has been a board member of the European Forum for Vaccine Vigilance and of the French Ligue Nationale pour la Liberté de Vacciner, as well as an accredited lobbyist at the European parliament. She has exposed issues regarding autism, vaccines and international health agenda on many occasions in Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Great-Britain, or at the health commission of the Polish parliament and other countries outside Europe. She also published articles on these issues in alternative press and health magazines such as Nexus, Néosanté, Alternative Santé, Rebelle Santé, Asperger Amitié, Liberté et Vaccinations. Her native language is French, but she is also fluent in English, Dutch and Italian and has an understanding of German and Spanish.

She is committed to promote new visions of global and individual health models that prioritize safe environmental policies and are rooted in the respect of fundamental freedoms and human rights.
