EPHA is a leading NGO advocating for better health for everyone living in Europe. Our mission is to bring together the public health community to provide thought leadership and facilitate change; to build public health capacity to deliver equitable solutions to European public health challenges, to improve health and reduce health inequalities. Our key role is to promote health in the European Union at the highest levels of policy making across the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council.

80 million people still live in poverty in the EU, and poor living conditions, low income, poor employment conditions and unhealthy diets due to being unable to afford to buy healthy food are all key determinants of health. In addition, many of the key determinants of health lie outside of the control of individual citizens, such as how healthcare systems are managed, how food production in the EU is organized and how trade regulations enable or discourage healthy food choices and how pharmaceutical policies and the cost of medicines are regulated, for example.

EPHA's proposal for an operating grant under a Framework Partnership Agreement covers core operating costs for actions that contribute to the four objectives of the Third Health Programme. EPHA's workplan covers 4 strategic aims: improve overall population health and healthy life years, strengthen European health systems for better patient outcomes and reduced inequalities, and support institutional and policy frameworks that promote health and to strengthen and increase effective public health.

Health in all Policies, prevention-promotion-protection, reducing health inequalities and solidarity are central tenets of EPHA's workplan and are reflected in our approaches to working inter alia on food systems, trade and EU governance. Decreasing health inequalities is a core value that we endeavor to mainstream in all activities. Actions in the 2015 workplan reflect the final year of EPHA’s current strategic plan, and this year will be crucial for setting the 2016 to 2020 strategy.
Start date: 01/01/2015 - End date: 31/12/2015

Proposal for a Specific Grant Agreement 2020 [EPHA 2020 SGA]

EPHA's 2020 SGA work programme will build on the activities implemented in 2018 - 2019 with a view to attaining the objectives outlined in the 2018-2021 FPA in eight thematic priority areas: NCD prevention, access to medicines, antimicrobial resistance, digital health, healthy trade, access to health and care for disadvantaged groups, financing for public health and capacity building / organisational development. Each thematic priority includes its own operational objective for 2020 and is broken down into activities including milestones and 20 deliverables. Process, output and outcome indicators are provided for the corresponding specific objectives.
EPHA and its members will continue creating synergies between these areas to strengthen the evidence base, identify best practices and enable policy dialogue between the EU and national level. The beneficiaries are numerous: policymakers, civil society and the public. EPHA will support EU policymakers to better respond to the real health needs of ordinary people, while national stakeholders will be able to make better use of EU policies to play a more active role in EU policy-making.
The implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals will be a thread running through all areas given that the issues EPHA is working on are multisectoral, involving both health and non-health stakeholders. We will work to ensure that reducing health inequalities will remain a priority in the context of the European Pillar of Social Rights and European Semester implementation.
A special focus will be placed on advocating public health friendly policies among new EU officials following the institutional renewal process, as well as newly elected MEPs who joined the European Parliament in 2019. This will be important for shaping the post-2020 policy and funding frameworks that will determine the level of attention paid to public health in general and to the inclusion of disadvantaged groups, including in the digital realm.

Start date: 01/01/2020 - End date: 31/12/2020
