Health problems of prisoners are widespread exacerbated by rising prison populations. Young prisoners have needs distinct from other prisoners, are more disadvantaged than their counterparts in the community and show negative impacts on their health. There is a clear need for prisons to respond with health promotion interventions to address health inequalities endorsing the principle that time spent in custody should aid disease prevention and promote health.

The project Health Promotion for Young Prisoners (HPYP) aims at developing and improving health promotion for young vulnerable people in the prison setting. It specifically aims at the subsequent implementation of a health promotion toolkit for young prisoners widely across European Member States. The toolkit addresses health related factors regarding infectious diseases, sexual health, mental health as well as the prevention and treatment of drug use.

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.
