The effects of health inequalities within and between EU MS are widely recognized,and reducing health inequalities is on the agenda of many MS. Moreover new challenges like the huge migration flows and the economic crisis and austerity policies that affect EU citizen’s everyday life are worsening the scenario. Despite an increasing concern and awareness on health inequalities, a wide gap exists in Europe in terms of political response.
The Joint Action Health Equity Europe will represent an important opportunity for MS to work jointly to address health inequalities and underlying social determinants of health.
The general objective of the project is to improve health and well-being of the EU citizens and achieve greater equity in health outcomes across all groups in society by a focus on socio-economic determinants of health and lifestyle related health inequalities. A particular priority will be given to migrants, since poor health and lack of access to health services can be an obstacle to integration.
This Joint Action aims to: deliver a policy framework with a menu of actions and recommendations for national, regional and local uptake and implementation; develop better policies improve monitoring, governance, implementation and evaluation; implement good practices and facilitate exchange and learning; identify factors of success, barriers and challenges and how to overcome them.
The Joint Action will contribute meeting two objectives of the Third health Program by introducing the equity lens in “Objective1: Promoting health, preventing diseases and fostering supportive environments for healthy lifestyles taking into account the ‘health in all policies” and in “Objective4: Facilitating access to better and safer healthcare for Union citizens”.
This Joint Action will follow a three-step approach that will facilitate: identification of policy options to tackle health inequalities; implementation of feasible and effective actions in all MS involved; elaboration and dissemination of further recommendations and guidelines.

Ageing population and increased prevalence of chronic conditions combined with limited human and financial resources are putting health systems under increasing strain. Digital tools, however, bring an opportunity to improve health care sector. Integrating eHealth into health policy and aligning eHealth investments with health requirements is of high importance, especially when recommendations and practices can be transferred across countries. Targeting Members Sates and Countries of the EU and eHealth stakeholders, as well as the general public, this project aims to improve health care with the use of ICT. eHAction is the Joint Action supporting the eHealth Network, which, in its Multiannual Work Programme 2018-2021, sets targets for exploring eHealth to facilitate the management of chronic diseases and multi-morbidity, by increasing sustainability and efficiency of health systems, and by facilitating personalized care and empowering the citizen. Specifically, it will work to find ways to empower people by giving them an active role in managing their health care data and processes, to use health data in an innovative way and to enhance continuity of care through the use of interoperable and cross-border solutions. The eHAction is in line with the Third Programme of EU actions in the field of health contributing to foster health in Europe by promoting the use of eHealth in a structured policy framework.

Vaccination is a valuable investment in health with highly positive return for the sustained development of populations. It is a preventive tool involving much less cost than the cost of targeted diseases and their consequences. Vaccination is a truly complex cross sectoral issue, as pertaining to basic immunology discovery, benefit/safety evaluation and epidemiological surveillance, to public health policies and health system planning, to forecasting and financing, to health professionals’ education and health literacy, to cultural identities and social norms. By involving a wide variety of stakeholders, the EU-JAV project aims at building concrete tools to improve vaccination coverage in EU and therefore improve population health. EU-JAV will also capitalise on the numerous existing initiatives and projects, to challenge and strengthen the European cooperation of Member states on vaccination while contributing to sustainably integrate EU-JAV achievements in health policies of European countries. The JA Vaccination proposes to address several important issues, common to many countries such as establishing a sustained cooperation of relevant Member State authorities, defining basic principles for vaccine demand forecasting, developing a concept and prototype for a data warehouse for EU-wide sharing of vaccine supply and demand data among dedicated stakeholders, defining common stages and criteria for priority-setting of vaccine research and development, developing a concept and prototype for a vaccine R&D priority setting framework, defining structural, technical and legal specifications as regards data requirements for electronic vaccine registries/databases/immunisation information systems and providing a framework to cooperate on confidence from research to best practices and implementation. To achieve this ambitious concrete actions, the project gathers 20 partners from 20 different countries as well as international organisations and relevant stakeholders.
