Support to Member States and stakeholders to address the chronic disease challenge
|Description of call |
"Support to Member States and stakeholders to address the chronic disease challenge"
The objective of this action is to identify and address key elements with a potential to reduce the burden of major chronic diseases and increase the sustainability of health systems. It should provide new evidence on economic and efficient means to achieve better health outcomes and to alleviate the burden on health and social systems if implemented at an appropriate scale in Member States. Proposed initiatives should generate impact when implemented, be transferable to other settings and elaborate incentives for implementation. They should have the potential to become relevant elements of national chronic disease strategies and add up to an integrated response to chronic diseases. Initiatives should help to reduce avoidable costs and burden for patients and health care systems.
