Support for the development of an integrated and inter-sectoral health strategy in the EU. This was achieved through three work packages: facilitating information exchange and networking among NGOs working on specific health determinants (WP1), building capacity of CEE NGOs to participate in EU level health activities (WP2) and developing an effective platform of environment and health organisations (WP3).
- WP1: To identify cross-cutting themes common to several health determinants/risk factors; to develop and share (i.e., with grass-roots organisations) appropriate policy responses and models of good practice relevant to a variety of settings, such as schools, workplace etc.
- WP2: To increase the CEE NGOs knowledge of the EU structures and health policies. To develop their capacity to participate in European health networks and projects as well as raising the profile at EU level of CEE health status and specific health challenges. Integration of CEE NGOs into European health networks. Development of national platforms of public health NGOs in accession countries.
- WP3: To mobilise a critical mass of NGO to participate in the Environment and Health process. To stimulate evidence-based and effective policy analysis and proposals relevant to EU environmental responsibilities, such as pesticides, chemicals, air quality, noise pollution etc. To orchestrate NGO commitment in support of the Children`s E and H Action Plan.

Health Literacy Survey EU (HLS EU) helps to establish the issue of health literacy (HL) in Europe. This is achieved in two main ways:
- The project contributes to further develop and differentiate the concept of HL, looking at its manifestation in various European regions and cultures, and to demonstrate its overall social and political impact.
- The project will show ways of operationalising HL in various national contexts, implementing working structures and formulating policy impulses and strategies.

General objective:

This Joint Action will support the national activities needed to build the capacity for organizing Health Examination Surveys (HES) in 14 countries. The Partners will work in collaboration with the European Health Examination Survey Reference Centre (EHES RC) funded by a separate Tender. The aim is to plan and prepare for a full-scale HES in the 14 countries, and to pilot the fieldwork, data collection, assessment and reporting. The full-size HESs will provide comparable information on major chronic disease risk factors and disease prevalence.

Specific objectives:

1. To prepare national HES plans for the Partners of the Joint Action.
2. To prepare detailed sampling description for the piloting countries.
3. To complete the national HES pilot field work.
4. To transfer pilot survey data from Partner countries to the EHES RC and assessment of the data.
5. To share the national experience among the Partners.
6. To plan the reporting of the national results of the full-size HES, and report the results of the national pilot HES.

Start date: 01/01/2010 - End date: 01/01/2012

EuroNeoNet (ENN) is a specialised neonatal network to provide networking to European neonatologists and other stakeholders a tool to perform quality assurance and benchmarking, and a framework to facilitate the development of high-quality outcome epidemiological research, implement quality improvement initiatives and randomised clinical trials. ENN is affiliated to the European Society for Paediatric Research and the European Society for Neonatology (ESPR/ESN).

The ENN Mission is to enhance neonatal networking to help neonatologist to promote a culture for quality of care improvements and patient safety, family-cantered and developmental care and dissemination of evidence-based interventions, e-learning, and to effectively conduct academically-driven clinical trials, case-control, cohort, cluster and nested studies.

Our Vision statement s ithat all Very Low-Gestational Age (VLGA, <32 weeks) and Very-Low-Birth-Weight (VLBW, <1500 g) newborn infants born in Europe, receive the best possible health care no matter where born, by preventing any existing inequalities and that all Neonatal Units shear a standardised perinatal risk and protective factors, neonatal interventions and short- and long-term outcomes for those tinny and vulnerable infants.

Our organization values are guided by the democratic, transparency, equal opportunity, values common to the European culture, and to shear all information gathered to help any interested stakeholders.

Our strategic aim is to consolidate a standardised set of health indicators to assess the quality of health care delivered to very premature infants by European institutions, regions and countries. We aim to reduce neonatal morbidity and mortality and improve their health status at 2 years, detect any inequalities that might exist.

Communication to the key interested stakeholders is mainly performed via our interactive website (www.euroneonet.org), but periodic report, newsletters, leaflets, publications, abstracts and presentations are also periodically and widely disseminated.
