Urban Health Centres 2.0 (UHC2.0) promote innovative integrated health and social care pathways, early detection of frailty, management of polypharmacy and prevention of falls for active and healthy ageing in European cities. The general objective is to develop, implement, and evaluate the UHC2.0 in 5 varied European cities that will act as pilot site, in order to produce and disseminate a transferable and easily implementable model for the innovative UHC2.0. The UHC2.0 should be a platform for the realisation of the priorities of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. In the whole project, a strong communication and optimal dissemination strategy will be realised.

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.

The general objective of the `e-CAPACIT8` project is to strengthen the capacities of European occupational health professionals (OHPs), so that they can facilitate the process of workers` ageing. The primary objective is built on four specific objectives (SOs), namely:

SO 1: to analyse and review the state of the art of the European OHPs` training curricula;
SO 2: to identify and continuously enrol the biggest possible number of stakeholders in the project, throughout its duration;
SO 3: to develop training material for use through the platform;
SO 4: to launch the functional version of the e-learning platform and actively enrol active users.

It is believed that such a formulation of the SOs will foster coherent proceedings during the project, whereas their successful completion will warrant the achievement of the project`s overall aim.

The project aims to use multidimensional prognostic indices(MPI)that predict survival, based on a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA), to improve the cost-effectiveness of health interventions in older individuals with multimorbidity and polypharmacy. The best setting-specific MPI-profile in which individual interventions are effective and reference models for allocate resources in healthcare will be identified to promote integrated care pathways of interventions.
The general objective is to reduce unnecessary use of health care resources according to appropriate and tailored, integrated multi-professional, planned interventions to the older subjects.
