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 project was initiated in response to results of a tender by DG SANCO on an External Quality Assurance Exercise (EQAE) in 2006 revealing the need for further improvement of the diagnostic reliability of bacteria of potential bioterrorism risk. The objective is to provide the infrastructure, design, organize, and manage practical EQAEs for bacteria of potential bioterrorist risk causing anthrax, tularemia, plague, glanders, melioidosis, brucellosis, and Q-fever

The general objective of the project is to improve the quality of antibiotic prescribing for children in Europe. The specific objectives include determining the variation in antibiotic prescribing for common childhood infections in the community and hospitals across Europe, compared to local guidelines. The project will also systematically compare rates of antimicrobial resistance. There has been a limited focus on education on antimicrobial resistance on pediatricians. The project will aim to kick start a new network of PID specialists working in close collaboration and building on the existing EU funded surveillance projects. ARPEC will use key opinion leaders within ESPID to try to develop the evidence base for the variation in antibiotic resistance and prescribing. This will then directly translate into long term educational programmes focussing on trainee pediatricians and formalise educational training packages in prudent antimicrobial prescribing.
