Measures of mortality are among the most important indicators for public health. All European Union member states collect all-cause mortality data in order to facilitate planning, monitoring annual trends of diseases and evaluating public health interventions. However, there is little tradition of conducting timely monitoring of mortality. This lack of timely collection, analysis and interpretation is a limitation when it comes to the assessment of the health impact of events that may lead to sudden changes in mortality such as major epidemics, extreme temperatures as well as deliberate or accidental release of biological or chemical agents.
In the DG Sanco supported project EuroMOMO we developed a coordinated approach to real-time mortality monitoring across Europe. This system is applied among countries that are able to meet the minimal requirements for mortality monitoring. Currently, the weekly published EuroMOMO mortality bulletin at www.euromomo.eu is based on data submitted from 18 countries or regions of countries.

The EuroMOMO network demonstrated how a timely, standardised and coordinated approach to mortality monitoring increases the European capacity to assess the impact of events with a potential impact on public health, including the 2009/10 influenza A(H1N1) pandemic. Without EuroMOMO, Europe would have been less well prepared for the pandemic
In addition, EuroMOMO was pivotal to facilitate country-specific in-depth analyses of influenza-associated mortality in general or the impact of the pandemic more specifically.
Our mission is to reinforce the EU`s preparedness to respond to potential risk of all hazards by a continued operation of the EuroMOMO network. The vision is further to extend the collaboration by adding new countries to the network.
By conducting regular network activites, partners will learn and exchange best practice on how to apply data from real-time mortality monitoring for risk assessment, in particular as regards cross-border threats and the management of the public health response to emergencies.

The Annual Work Programme for 2016 of EPHA is drawn from the multiannual work programme 2015-2017 and builds on successes to date. EPHA’s activities in 2016 will continue to contribute to all four objectives of the Third Health Programme. EPHA has formally reviewed our Strategic Plan 2011-2015. We undertook a thorough consultation process involving Board members, Staff and the EPHA membership, and an analysis of EPHA’s operating environment, strengths and weaknesses. The EPHA membership formally approved the new Strategic Plan 2016-2020 at the Annual General Assembly on 4th September 2015. The Work Programme for 2016 reflects the revised strategy to define a clearer selection of priorities. This approach will enable EPHA to manage activities more effectively, encourage closer cooperation between members and across themes, and better monitor and evaluate our impact.EPHA’s overarching strategic objective remains: “To promote good health and wellbeing, to reduce disease and health inequalities in European policies and programmes”. Priorities selected are as follows:Under Aims 1 and 2 of the 3rdHP and EPHA Strategic Objective “Securing a Governance for Health Approach in Key EU Policies” (HiAP):- Agriculture and Food Policy including Alcohol, Tobacco and NCDs- EU Semester for Health- Healthy Trade Policy- Public Health and Research in the EU BudgetUnder Aims 3 and 4 of the 3rdHP and EPHA Strategic Objective “Strengthen EU Policies to Reduce Health Inequalities and Ensure Universal Access to Sustainable, Inclusive Health Systems”:- Universal and Fair Access to Medicines- Action on Antimicrobial Resistance- Inclusive E- and M-Health- HSPAEach of these areas has operational objectives, milestones, deliverables and impact indicators. The Work Programme 2016 also highlights organisational development objectives, particularly on cooperation with academia, communications and financial sustainability, which are priorities for 2016.
