The Correlation Network (CN) is a European civil society network and centre of expertise in the field of drug use, harm reduction and social inclusion.

Overall objective of this proposal:
Improve the access to and the quality of harm reduction services for People Who Use Drugs (PWUD), including other related vulnerable and marginalised people and to enhance policies and practices that increase social inclusion.

This is achieved by the following strategic objectives
- Strengthen the network and the collaboration with its members and partners through an adequate and solid organisational network structure
- Monitor developments and collect information and evidence in the field of drug use and harm reduction, by involving the expertise of civil society organisations
- Strengthen capacities of the various players in the field of drug use and harm reduction and facilitate exchange between network members and partners
- Advocate for full coverage of harm reduction programmes in Europe, addressing both health and social aspects.

All CN activities will pay specific attention to Hepatitis C, new drug trends and overdose prevention. Relevant CN outputs include : Sustainable network, Annual Monitoring Reports, Online knowledge and training hub, European Harm Reduction Conferences (2018/20), policy recommendations.

CN contributes to the Third Health Programme (THP) by promoting health (in particular harm reduction), prevent diseases (in particular drug-related diseases and infectious diseases such as HCV and HIV/AIDS), and foster supportive environments for healthy lifestyles (e.g. by reducing barriers to access health and social services).

CN contributes as well to the following THP priorities:
1.2. Drugs-related health damage, including information and prevention
1.3. HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and hepatitis
2.2. Capacity-building against health threats in Member States, including, where appropriate, cooperation with neighbouring countries

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.

Strengthening the capacity and capability of civil society to drive the TB response in Europe [TBEC]

TB Europe Coalition (TBEC) is the only regional civil society network working exclusively on TB in the WHO Europe region and, with 180 members in 35 WHO Europe countries, is uniquely positioned to increase the political will needed to end the TB epidemic across the region by strengthening the coordinated response of civil society.

Despite being preventable and curable, tuberculosis (TB) is the biggest infectious disease killer. Global leaders have committed to end the epidemic by 2030 but, at current rates of progress, this will not be achieved for another 100 years at least. 2018 was a turning point in the fight against TB; the UN High-Level Meeting on TB spurred unprecedented political attention for TB. It is essential that civil society work collectively in 2019 to ensure that this momentum is not lost. TBEC members will play a significant role in holding national governments, and the region collectively, to account.

TBEC has identified health system financing, people-centred TB policy, and TB R&D as the key thematic priorities in the region for the next three years.

TBEC has identified four key objectives for 2019 work plan: 1) well-structured TBEC governance and accountability mechanisms; 2) robust processes for communication and external outreach, including first ever comprehensive media strategy and new TBEC website; 3) strong partnerships with key decision makers, influencers and civil society in interdependent policy areas, in particular TBEC priority thematic areas; and 4) knowledge exchange visit from the high-burden TB EU countries, online webinars and publications.

TBEC’s objectives are directly relevant to the four 3rd Health Programme Objectives and DG SANTE and will further increase the EU’s existing public health knowledge on TB, advance coordinated efforts to combat DR-TB and TB/HIV co-infection, and subsequently, reduce the financial burden of TB on health systems and, positively impact the health of citizens in the European region.
