This multicentre project aims to foster health promotion interventions and environments suitable for patients, their families, and health professionals. The strategy is based on the Health Promoting Hospitals (HPH) framework with a strong emphasis on evidence based prevention.
The ultimate goal of this project is achievement of measurable improvements in population health through comprehensive promotion of healthy behaviours in diverse and complementary categories of individuals.
The project would focus on vulnerable patients presenting with acute manifestation of an underlying chronic condition, and on those they have stronger bonds with. Both patients and their families are assumed—in line with theory and evidence—to feel more susceptible to illness and more open to realize

Individuals with chronic diseases and mental disorders often experience work-related problems, such as unemployment, absenteeism, reduced productivity and stigmatization in the workplace, leading to negative consequences at individual, national and European level. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases and mental disorders as well as the current economic crisis make this issue even more problematic, requiring action in terms of innovative strategies to improve the participation of these persons in the labor market. Unfortunately, this is hindered by a lack of knowledge of which strategies are available in the different European countries and their effectiveness, and a lack of clarity regarding the employment-related needs of these individuals, leading to gaps between what is offered and what is needed. Therefore, PATHWAYS aims a) to identify integration and re-integration strategies that are available in Europe and beyond, b) to determine their effectiveness, c) to assess the specific employment-related needs of persons with chronic diseases and mental disorders and d) to develop guidelines supporting the implementation of effective professional integration and reintegration strategies. Involvement in PATHWAYS of 12 partners with vast expertise in the area of chronic and mental conditions and employment from 10 different European countries allows to compare strategies between different European regions, taking into account cultural, social, and political differences. Stakeholder consultations, including advocacy organizations, employers, policy makers, international organizations, and European Union delegates, will provide useful insights as to the development and implementation of policy recommendations to improve their integration or reintegration into the workplace. In this way, PATHWAYS will provide the first steps to work towards a more inclusive labor market in which persons with chronic diseases and mental disorders can meaningfully participate.

• Train 24 health professionals as Trainers of trainers about how to reach, approach the project target group and to perform the CCS.
• Train 12 advocacy leaders in cervical cancer control advocacy able to persuade influential people to stimulate change.
• Establish a network of healthcare centers that will test AURORA methodology.
