Best Practices Portal

Welcome to the Best Practice Portal

The Best Practice Portal is designed to help to find reliable and practical information on implemented practices recognized as the best in the area of health promotion, disease prevention, and the management of non-communicable diseases. It also provides an overview of practices collected and transmitted in actions co-funded under the Health Programmes.

Practices can be submitted for assessment through this portal. Every practice, as long as evaluated as "best" against the criteria adopted by the Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention and Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (Steering Group), will be published in the portal and might be brought to the attention of Member State representatives for further transfer and broader implementation.

DG SANTE has made it a priority to identify, disseminate and transfer best practices in order to make progress in health promotion and in disease prevention in Europe. DG SANTE also hopes these efforts will help reach the Sustainable Development Goal 3.4 to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases by one-third by 2030, through prevention and treatment, and to also help reach the nine UN/WHO global voluntary targets for health.
