The JA will be contribute to public health programmes in Europe and develop Alzheimers disease (AD) and dementia prevention and care models in different European countries. The aim is to contribute to improvements in health by supporting and facilitating quality and efficiency of public health and healthcare policies and interventions. Synergy and avoidance of duplication with other health and research programs will be ensured.
The aim is to build a sustainable European platform. The objectives of ALCOVE are to accomplish the following during the 2 year project duration:
1. Establish a European statement on Alzheimer`s disease: Propose a synthesis regarding AD information and practices in Europe which could be the basis for further implementation at the European level
2. Ability of the JA to support the implementation of good practices in the field of risk prevention with measured results for patients: a focus on the overuse of psychotropics.

The European Haemophilia Safety Surveillance (EUHASS) project aims to establish a pharmacovigilance program to monitor the safety of treatments for people with haemophilia. In addition it will develop and maintain a database of all the Haemophilia centres in Europe and establish a Rapid Alert System for immediate Europe-wide notification in case of unexpected or serious adverse events.

The Commission Communication on a European initiative on Alzheimer`s disease ingled out four main areas for greater EU collaboration:
1. Acting early to diagnose dementia,
2. A shared European effort in research,
3. National solidarity and exchange of best care practices,
4. Respecting the rights of people with dementia.

In order to support the actions outlined in the Commission Communication on a European initiative on Alzheimer`s disease and other dementias, the 22nd AE Conference will focus on these four priorities and organise an exchange of information, experiences, projects and best practices in the following areas:
1. Medical and scientific update (early diagnosis, prevention, epidemiology)
2. Social and care aspects (psycho-social interventions, care services, stigma and discrimination, integration of Alzheimer`s disease in mental health promotion activities)
3. Legal and ethical issues (guardianship systems, consent, advance directives, patients` rights)
4. Dementia strategies and policies (public health impact of dementia, national plans, financing of care, carer support measures, image of dementia).

In all areas, AE will identify key note speakers to provide state of the art presentations on the current knowledge and understanding, whilst inviting presenters to submit abstracts on ongoing and recently finalised research, projects and experiences.

In addition, AE will collaborate with EU funded initiatives to share the progress and results of research initiatives of programmes and projects like the Joint Programming Initiative on Neurodegenerative Disease, the Joint Action (ALCOVE-Alzheimer COoperation and Valuation in Europe), projects supported under the FP7 and AAL Programmes and by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (PharmaCog).

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are considered to be the most frequent adverse event in health care delivery. It has been amply demonstrated that a set of simple and inexpensive clinical good practices (known as “bundled care” ) are highly effective in preventing and managing the most severe HAIs, such as catheter-related blood infections (CRBSI), or ventilation-associated pneumonias (VAPs).
The aim of IMPLEMENT is to provide policymakers, managers and healthcare workers with the knowledge on the implementation of improvement measures (bundles) in patient care for the prevention and management of HAIs. Based on existing European guidelines and hospital policies and practices, IMPLEMENT is meant to help recognize and overcome common obstacles for implementing evidence-based best practices by testing the effectiveness of bundled interventional strategies on a small scale in different European hospitals and under routine conditions.
