Chronic Disease Joint Action (ChrodisJA) final conference, Thon Hotel, Brussels, February 27-28
EHFF has operated as a Collaborating Partner in this large, three year multi-stakeholder project. Our attendance at and the content of the final meeting of Work Package 7 (WP7, diabetes as a case study) in Rome last October was finally reported in our news section on Jan.6 2017. As this was the work package we were most involved with (although also contributing to WP5 and WP6), EHFF played a small part as a facilitator in one of the session on the first day, related to WP7. The full programme is available here.
All the presentations are openly available via the Chrodis website: www.chrodis.eu
A small selection are provided here: Marina Maggini on lessons from WP7 here, the full text of Commissioner Andriukaitis’ speech here , Ellen Nolte of the WHO observatory’s address on advancing comprehensive healthcare here and finally, Enrico Delgado’s on WP4, the knowledge exchange platform here.
The Press Release from the Conference ‘12 steps to tackle the burden of chronic diseases’ was published on our news feed dated Feb.28th.
A second JA, Chrodis plus, is expected to start in the Autumn. There are still issues to be resolved and when the structure is complete, it will be reported here, as we anticipate, at the very least, to be a Collaborating Partner for this JA also, as it is fits well with the other policy work EHFF has been undertaking in relation to the Commission since 2013.
