OBesity Training And Information Services in Europe - phase 2 [OBTAINS-E2] [836149] - Operating Grant
Project abstract

This is the second 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 2019, OBTAINS-E2 will focus on:

(i) the dissemination of good health care practices for obesity treatment and weight management through our SCOPE online training and professional development;

(ii) the maintenance and enhancement of European mapping and information services; and

(iii) the expansion of our support services for advocacy and policy dissemination, including the building of a Policy Repository as part of a new European Obesity Observatory.
