To empower European youth by giving them access to high quality sex education and a downloadable mobile guide with the latest information on sexuality and STIs at their fingertips, thus enabling them to make qualified and informed choices in their everyday lives about sexuality. The ambition is to make youth able to better understand their own as well as others` sexuality, and be more accepting of themselves and tolerant of others, in addition to enabling them to avoid situations that may escalate to sexual bullying or abuse or simply unprotected sex. Hopefully this will make young people more comfortable with themselves and around others, and able to avoid STIs and unplanned pregnancies.
Ultimately, the goals are to achieve lower prevalence of STIs and unplanned pregnancies, as well as to demonstrate to the European health professional sector the efficiency of the open and candid approach to sexual health education.

TOB-G project aims to develop and implement an innovative and cost effective approach to prevent chronic diseases related to tobacco dependence. The specialized guidelines for high risks groups will be developed according to ENSP’s evidence based and good practices in tobacco cessation and with ERS TCC scientific material on smoking health hazards. High risk populations are considered those who suffer from cardiovascular diseases, COPD, type 2 diabetes, adolescents & pregnant women.The developed guidelines will contain strategies and recommendations designed to assist health professionals in delivering and supporting effective treatment of dependence on tobacco. Recommendations will be made as a result of scientific reviews and evidence of good practices from scientific groups that will consist of health professionals of different expertise. To monitor the quality of the approach a pilot implementation of the tobacco cessation will be conducting for each group. The assessment of the effectiveness of the tobacco cessation guidelines will be the primary aim of the scientific groups and will be measured by the number of people quitting smoking after the pilot implementation. Since the tobacco cessation guidelines will be addressed to health professionals, the partnership will develop and implement an e-learning training for guidelines use.The project fits perfectly the objectives and priorities of the 3rd Health Programme, as it will assist health professionals to provide guidance and targeted prevention to high risk populations engaged to the unfavourable lifestyle of smoking. Training primary care physicians addresses the lack of specialist doctors in EU and increases access to tobacco cessation specialists. TOB-G project will enhance the overall European capacity in the treatment of tobacco dependence, thus, in the prevention of chronic diseases, through offering smoking cessation tools, appropriately assessed and fitted to the specific needs of high risk groups.

Understanding and addressing youth sexual coercion and violence as a threat to young people's sexual health in Europe [YouthSexualViolence]

The general objective of the project is to promote the sexual health of young people across Europe by improving the understanding of youth sexual aggression and victmization (YSAV) and improve the (policy, health care, educational) responses to YSAV. The knowledge base on youth sexual violence is notably limited and ill-harmonised, multicountry and multidisciplinary dialogue are virtually absent, and member states fail to learn from each other and develop shared, joint strategies towards context-sensitive responses to youth sexual violence. Specific strategic objectives of the project are to work towards fulfilling these needs and establish a multidisciplinary, multicountry expert network, strengthen (expand and harmonise) the knowledge base, and mobilize action by developing a context-sensitive European Action Plan.
