"The members of the 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"(Article 1). This vision is part of a broader vision 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 workplace health promotion is part of the concept of quality in work with impacts on productivity, employment and social cohesion.

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.

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 ready to apply among countries that are able to meet the minimal requirements for mortality monitoring. Currently, the weekly output (the mortality bulletin at www.euromomo.eu) is based on data submitted from 15 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 by a continued operation of the EuroMOMO network. The vision is further to extent the collaboration by adding new countries to the network. By training 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.
