This is the final year of a proposed 4-year Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA). It builds on the actions under a previous Framework Partnership Agreement, OBTAINS-E, supported by the 3rd Health Programme. OBTAINS-E is the acronym for OBesity Training And Information Services in Europe.
The OBTAINS-E2 programme contributes to the EU 3rd Health Programme and its priorities for preventing disease and supporting healthy lifestyles, reducing health inequalities, promoting cross-border medical expertise (including rare causes of obesity), and supporting evidence-based and cost-effective prevention and health promotion activities. OBTAINS-E2 will support access to best-practice weight management services for all citizens, along with high quality information available to all, with a special focus on inequalities and the development of policies to tackle obesity across the region.
In 2021, OBTAINS-E2 will focus on: a) training of health care professionals through expansion of an online e-learning platform of obesity training b) Improving data availability for Europe and information on European interventions to address obesity and c) supporting policy development through an evidence repository, briefing papers and webinar series.
