Support to the Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention and Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (SGPP), 2020-2022

Duration: Jun 2020 - Jun 2022

Aim
The aim of this project is to support the Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention and Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (SGPP).

Approach
The support consists of organisational aspects comprised of the hosting of two virtual, the organisation of 4 webinars and the continuous managing and animating of online expert / stakeholder groups on the EU Health Policy Platform.

Additionally two scientific background documents were prepared:
1. The first study explores how the rich information available from research projects can be made accessible for policy makers in the field of health promotion and disease prevention. It describes recommendations to improve search findings and provide suggestions to CORDIS and other database owners, users of the information (Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety and other Directorates in the European Commission, Member States) and for project owners to improve the accessibility of their results.
2. The second maps Member State level public health measures on COVID-19 as set out in the recommendations in recent Commission Communications and Commission Recommendations. It describes the effectiveness of measures and explores how to reinforce (real-time) monitoring of policy-relevant COVID-19 measures and activities at EU level.
