“The members of the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) work together towards the vision `healthy employees in healthy organisations`. They are committed to the mission of developing and promoting good workplace health practice, which in turn contributes to a high level of health protection and sustainable economic and social development in Europe” (Rules of Internal Procedure, Article 1). This vision is part of two broader visions at European policy level:
The EU Lisbon Agenda identifies the goal for this decade to develop the EU region `to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion‘. In this context the EU established concrete goals with regards to 3 areas:
- Quality in work and productivity
- Full employment
- Social cohesion
Workplace health promotion is part of the concept of quality in work with impacts on productivity, employment and social cohesion.

The second vision, although not on the same level on the EU agenda, is to develop a Europe of Health. European health policy supports the development of the national health care systems in the frame of established rules of subsidiarity, with a view to meeting the expectations of European citizens. This includes
- To combat communicable diseases
- To ensure safety of sensitive products
- To support the functioning of health systems within the single market
- To reduce inequalities in health, particularly with regards to the unified Europe
- To establish a European health information system and appropriate mechanisms for responses to new health threats
- To influence important health determinants across a wide range of settings and health issues

With its vision and mission, ENWHP contributes especially to the reduction of health inequalities, to the development of a European health information system and to improving important health determinants with impacts on all relevant settings in working and non-working life.

Specific objectives:

1. To prepare national HES plans for the Partners of the Joint Action.
2. To prepare detailed sampling description for the piloting countries.
3. To complete the national HES pilot field work.
4. To transfer pilot survey data from Partner countries to the EHES RC and assessment of the data.
5. To share the national experience among the Partners.

The 2010 Ministerial Conference on eHealth – currently being organised by the forthcoming Spanish Presidency of the European Union and the European Commission – is a milestone in the process launched with the Commission Communication "eHealth – making healthcare better for European citizens: An action plan for a European eHealth Area", COM (2004) 256, and with the commitment undertaken by Member States to work together to facilitate learning and promote wider deployment for successful eHealth applications. The Conference – scheduled to take place in Barcelona on March 15-18, 2010 – supported the exchange of good practices and a forum involving National and Commission high level representatives to discuss about progresses on deployment and future directions of eHealth policies.
Support for the event organisation to the Spanish Presidency was foreseen in the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) Work Programme 2009 , under the section `Calls for tender and support measures implemented by grants in 2009`, which were specifically aimed at supporting studies, portal and/or common repositories, as well as conferences and events.
The High Level eHealth Conference 2010 was also intended and designed to support some of the objectives stipulated in the “Decision No 1350/2007/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2007 establishing a second programme of Community action in the field of health (2008-13)", such as: improved safety of the health of citizens, health promotion, dissemination of health information, increasing general awareness about healthcare and the collection, analysis and evaluation of healthcare information.
The Conference theme was focused on “eHealth for Sustainable Healthcare Delivery: global challenges through local actions”, emphasising the need for coordinated political, organizational and technical actions – at both local and national levels – to boost the potential of eHealth as an instrument for coping with the many challenges faced world-wide by national health systems.
