The general objective of this proposal is the development of indicators to monitor the health status of migrants in Europe by using existing health related databases and surveys. Furthermore, a European network of epidemiological observatories on migrants’ health will be established. This network will generate a European overview of comparable and exchangeable data on socio-demographic and health profile of migrants for selected health problems. Specific attention will be paid to the conceptual, methodological, ethical and practical issue of identifying ethnic minorities in health databases and to the assessment of valid comparisons between migrant groups within countries and between countries.

The overall purpose of the project is to generate operational knowledge to better understand the role and impact of Community Based Voluntary Counselling and Testing services (CBVCTs) across Europe, as well as to study the use of innovative strategies based on new technologies and social networks, to increase early HIV/STI diagnosis and treatment among the most vulnerable groups.
Six specific Objectives have been defined: 1)To monitor and evaluate CBVCT services in Europe; 2) To identify determinants for HIV test seeking behaviour and sexual risk behaviour among MSM in Europe; 3) To describe and improve approaches of linkage to health services for HIV/STI among MSM in Europe; 4) To improve the implementation of CBVCT services specifically addressed to MSM in Europe; 5) To describe HIV testing patterns and identify barriers to testing and care among migrant populations in Europe; 6) To assess acceptability and feasibility of innovative strategies and interventions aimed at increasing HIV counselling and testing.

As part of its 2018 operating grant, Alzheimer Europe will aim to:
- Provide a voice to people with dementia by carrying out an inventory and analysis of existing working groups of people with dementia, their membership, working methods and findings and producing a report with the findings and identified good practices
- Make dementia a European priority by comparing and analysing differences and commonalities contained in the priority actions and themes of national dementia strategies and providing a comparative report with the key findings
- Promote a rights-based approach to dementia by identifying the issues faced by people with dementia, carers and professional carers coming from ethnic, cultural and religious minorities as the priority of its European Dementia Ethics Network, carrying out an extensive literature review and analysis of existing initiatives on this subject and producing a report with the key findings and recommendations
- Support dementia research by developing an online database of phase II and phase III clinical trials on Alzheimer's disease and dementia, by continuing the development of its European Dementia Observatory and by organising a conference in Barcelona from 27-29 October with at least 500 participants from 30 European countries
- Strengthen the European dementia movement by carrying out a mapping exercise of organisations with an interest in dementia, developing a networking strategy and by organising the Alzheimer's Association Academy with capacity-building workshops for its national member organisations.
The activities undertaken as part of Alzheimer Europe’s 2018 Work Plan are fully aligned with key EU programmes and respond to the calls made by successive EU Presidencies for greater European collaboration on dementia. In particular, the organisation will ensure to respond to the detailed 2015 Council conclusions and support the work of the 2nd Joint Action on dementia and the Group of governmental experts on dementia.

The strategic objective of the project is to improve the health of migrants and communities affected by migration and, therefore, to tackle existing health gaps. The project’s goal is to enhance the understanding of the complex relationship between health and population mobility.
1) Follow-up and build on recent European initiatives in migration health. In particular, the project will take into consideration the migration health-related conferences and consultations of 2007 and develop synergies with European-level migration health projects currently being implemented.
2) Create a forum for discussions among experts on health and migration. The project seeks to bring together academics, national authorities, representatives of international organizations and NGOs and enable them to exchange their expertise, to discuss concrete cases, identify best practices and draft policy recommendations. The participants will also identify areas in which more data needs to be collected and analysed as well as areas where more research needs to be conducted.
3) Enable EU Member States to learn from each others’ practices and foster dialog among academic institutions, multiple stakeholders in governments, the European Commission, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations. The project seeks to encourage these multidisciplinary stakeholders to develop action points for integrating the project’s recommendations into health and related strategies at the national and EU levels. This widened involvement will support a multi-pronged approach beyond the traditional target audience of health professionals.
4) Disseminate widely the final report of the workshop results and consultation conclusions to key stakeholders for migration health issues.
