Every action the European Heart Network (EHN) undertakes aims to achieve its mission: to prevent and reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD).

To establish its operational objectives and construct its work programme for 2018, EHN has scanned the EU policy horizon and consulted widely with its members.

EU policy areas upon which we will act include sustainable development, common agriculture policy and trade. We aim to inject consideration of CVD/chronic diseases into these areas to help achieve SDG goal 3.4 and the WHA 25x25 targets.

A major focus in 2018 is implementation of EHN’s policy recommendations contained in its paper “Transforming European food and drink policies for cardiovascular health”.

EHN is a closely-knit member organisation and has, consequently, planned a series of workshops and seminars to strengthen its members' capacities and provide knowledge-exchange opportunities for them. EHN will also strengthen its own operations and continue to ensure good governance.

EHN’s near-to-final 2019-2023 strategy encompasses three pillars (general objectives): I-prevent avoidable CVD; II-strengthen the support for people with CVD; III-reinforce CVD research. These pillars are supported by horizontal objectives and our 2018 work programme includes, notably, an operational objective to ensure a framework of strong cooperation with institutional as well as non-governmental, like-minded organisations working to promote health and reduce risk factors.

In conclusion, we believe that the 10 operational objectives and activities that we have selected for 2018 will contribute to achieve the general and specific objectives set out in our Framework Programme Application of June 2017. We believe that, collectively and albeit in the longer term, they will help address the large inequalities due to CVD in the EU and thus provide substantial EU added value.

Efforts to mitigate the devastation of tobacco-attributable morbidity and mortality have advanced in Europe and consist of the adoption of the EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), and the WHO FCTC. In the face of a changing tobacco product landscape, where dual- and poly-tobacco use has become an increasing public health problem, strategies for addressing the tobacco epidemic must also evolve. Moreover, despite the existence of regulations that are efficacious in reducing the demand for tobacco products, effective implementation remains a persistent challenge across EU MS with an imperative and documented need for regional actions and non-fragmented communication. In light of the above the ENSP 2020 objectives are as follows:
1: To assist and support the central EU level empower capacity at the EU MS National level, for Civil Society with implementing and assessing tobacco control legislation through the provision of scientific evidence and awareness raising
2: To empower capacity at the EU MS level, Civil Society, Policy Makers, clinicians and other stakeholders through the provision of science-based evidence, increased health literacy and improving access to tobacco dependence treatment.
3: To enhance the exchange of tobacco control information across countries, disciplines and generations.
4: To enhance alliances between EU tobacco control stakeholders, to promote sustainability and to ensure the wise use of EU funds.

Results that will be generated include reports on expert mapping, TPD assessment, toolkits, fact sheets, hot topics, guidelines and online modules and information sharing venues. End users and target groups of the 2020 ENSP OG include but are not limited to EU regulators, EU MS regulators, Civil Society, Youth, the Media, the Public, Clinicians and other stakeholders.
