The mission of the SCPE network is to learn more about the cerebral palsies from surveillance of trends in prevalence rates, severity, associated impairments and secondary disabilities.
By using population-based surveys and registers across Europe the SCPE network aims to:
• promote harmonization and quality of definition and description of the cerebral palsies
• develop collaborative epidemiological and clinical research projects about the cerebral palsies, attracting young researchers to the field, in partnership with individuals with cerebral palsies and their carers
• disseminate knowledge about the cerebral palsies for individuals with cerebral palsies, health care professionals and key stakeholders, including via academic publications
• develop best practice in monitoring trends in the cerebral palsies
• raise standards of care equitably for all people with cerebral palsies through the life span and thus improve outcomes and quality of life for individuals with cerebral palsies and their carers

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.

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

The aim of this proposal is to submit proposal for two presidency conferences organized under the auspices of the Slovakian Presidency to the Council of the European Union. The Presidency conferences are to be partly financed under the work programme 2016. There are two conferences to be followed in this proposal: (1) a conference on ‘Prevention of chronic non-communicable diseases and healthy lifestyles’ and (2) a conference on ‘Alzheimer’s disease - the epidemic of the third millennium. Are we ready to face it’?

(1) ‘Prevention of chronic non-communicable diseases and healthy lifestyles’
The conference will focus on the impact of the reduction and elimination of risk factors causing non-communicable disease and support the EU aims in the area of chronic diseases mitigation.
The objective is to point to the issue of non-communicable chronic diseases and healthy lifestyle and to nourish the discussion to foster the topic on the European level.

(2) ‘Alzheimer’s disease - the epidemic of the third millennium. Are we ready to face it?
The aim is to promote research, prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of dementia. Our aim also is to strengthen the coordination within Member states of relevant policies in the field of dementia and discuss development of the future steps in the area of dementia.

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).
