Best Practices Portal

Welcome to the Best Practice Portal

The European Commission’s Best Practice Portal is designed to help find reliable and practical information on implemented practices recognised as best or promising in the area of public health. It can include practices addressing health promotion, disease prevention, and the management of non-communicable diseases, but also communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis, as well as interventions to limit the spread such diseases, such as vaccination, and antimicrobial resistance. The Portal also provides an overview of practices collected and transmitted in actions co-funded under the EU Health Programmes in the past five years.

Practices can be submitted for evaluation through the Best Practice Portal. Every practice that is evaluated as "best" or “promising” against the criteria adopted by the Steering Group on Health Promotion, Disease Prevention and Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (SGPP), which is the predecessor of the current Expert Group on Public Health (PHEG), will be published in the Portal and may 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 and promising practices to improve public health in Europe. These efforts will support Member States in reaching the health-related Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 through prevention and treatment. It will also help reach the UN/WHO global voluntary targets for health.
