This is the third year of a 3-year FPA. This year we propose to continue the work described in the FPA, disseminating good health care practices through our SCOPE online training programme, our SCOPE Schools and our SCOPE scholarship scheme. We will continue and expand our information activities using interactive maps and freely downloadable graphics showing obesity prevalence and trends, inequalities, co-morbidities, costs, upstream drivers, national policies and community interventions.

Variations on the original FPA proposals are (i) no further translation of the SCOPE online modules (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish are now available, German is not being requested); (ii) extending the SCOPE scholarship programme to encourage participation by health professionals in lower-income Member States; (iii) increasing the number of freely available downloadable graphics in minority languages to provide at least 30 graphics in each of the 24 working languages of the EU; (iv) increasing the number of community interventions mapped to at least 140 across the region; (v) extending the Atlas and Country Record Cards to provide longer Country Reports for each Member State.

Proposal for a Specific Grant Agreement 2019 [EPHA 2019 SGA]

EPHA’s proposal for a Specific Grant Agreement (SGA) 2019 has been designed to be as coherent as possible with EPHA’s 2018-2021 Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA). It provides a problem analysis for the activities proposed, taking into account current developments and evidence that are influencing public health.

The proposal defines the 2019 operational SMART objectives in each priority area and how they relate to the multiannual objectives outlined in the FPA. Each 2019 objective is broken down into concrete activities, milestones and deliverables.

In line with the FPA, EPHA is seeking funding to continue working in eight thematic priority areas: prevention of chronic NCDs, access to affordable medicines, antimicrobial resistance, digital health, healthy trade policy, improving access to healthcare for disadvantaged groups, financing for public health, and capacity building. One of the main differences between the 2019 SGA proposal and previous years is that more emphasis will be placed on establishing synergies between these areas. This will enable EPHA to be more results-oriented by fostering cross-fertilisation of ideas and action, strengthening the evidence base and working effectively as a network through our diverse membership. A strong focus is placed on ensuring transfer of knowledge between the EU and national level to support the priorities of the 3rd Health Programme and the European Commission, and to emphasise the added value of EU health policymaking.

Moreover, the proposal describes the planning and implementation of EPHA’s Work Programme, including the resources required to accomplish it (staff and budget), the target audience(s) for each activity and how deliverables will be disseminated. It also shows how the work will be evaluated, with indicators provided for each objective. The final part explains how EPHA’s operational and financial management structure supports the successful delivery, with a detailed budget accompanying the proposal.

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.
