The STAD in Europe (SiE) project aims to tackle heavy episodic drinking by restricting the availability of alcohol in all drinking environments: licensed drinking environments, public environments and private environments. One of the most successful prevention strategies targeting binge drinking is STAD, developed in Stockholm, Sweden. The main components of STAD are community mobilization, a training course in responsible beverage service, and stricter enforcements. It is one of the few community action programme’s that has shown significant effects on the reduction of overserving of alcohol, underage drinking in city areas, and the reduction of alcohol-related aggression. STAD has even proven to be very cost-effective. Moreover, an approach based on environmental interventions is expected to be especially effective for lower socio-economic classes. In this project we would like to combine the knowledge gained in Sweden with complementary elements to come to an integral European approach for reducing availability of alcohol for young people. We think that every country and (drinking)culture will need a tailored approach but we also feel that the effective elements as were present in the STAD programme could be universally applicable. In 7 countries, 7 tailored STAD-based interventions will be developed (either focusing on nightlife, events, home-drinking or drinking in parks and streets) and implemented. Both the process and the outcomes will be researched and registered. The project will result in an intervention manual applicable to all EU MS and a final symposium on tackling binge drinking in Europe. All European countries and regions will be facilitated to implement strategies for reducing alcohol availability that have the potential to reduce alcohol related problems in a substantial way.

Topic: 1.1 Cost-effective promotion and prevention measures in line, in particular, with the Union strategies on alcohol and nutrition, and including actions to support the exchange of evidence-based and good practices for addressing risk factors such as tobacco use and passive smoking, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy dietary habits and physical inactivity, taking into account the public health aspects of underlying factors, such as those of a social and environmental nature, with a focus on Union added value.

ENHANCING HEALTH SYSTEMS SUSTAINABILITY BY PROVIDING COST-EFFICIENCY DATA OF EVIDENCED BASED INTERVENTIONS FOR CHRONIC MANAGEMENT IN STRATIFIED POPULATION BASED ON CLINICAL SOCIO-ECONOMIC DETERMINAN [EFFICHRONIC]

EFFICHRONIC project aims to provide evidence on the positive return of investment and relevant data on cost-efficiency of the application of the CDSMP in 5 different European countries (France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain & UK) paying special attention to those factors (health & medical related but also social, cultural, economic) linked with a higher burden of chronic disorders in European society.
Five specific objectives have been defined: 1) To carry out multidimensional analysis and elaborate stratification methodologies to identify vulnerable groups/individuals in the 5 countries/regions involved, in order to maximize the impact of the CDSMP when implemented; 2) To design specific strategies to reach the targeted individual/groups in order to involve them in the program implementation; 3) To implement the programme in the 5 regions countries, including the appropriate actions to involve at least 500 individuals of the stratified/identified populations in each setting (N=2500); 4) To generate a comprehensive framework for the impact assessment (including cost-efficiency and health economics assessemnt) and implement specific methodologies to provide evidence-based comparative data on the positive return of the investment in such preventive and management empowerment programmes in a specific population; 5) To elaborate on the conclusions obtained to define policy recommendations and concrete guidelines to contribute to the scaling up of EFFICHRONIC methodology and intervention strategy to other regions and countries in Europe

Topic: 1.4 Support cooperation and networking in the Union in relation to preventing and improving the response to chronic diseases including cancer, age-related diseases and neurodegenerative diseases, by sharing knowledge, good practices and developing joint activities on prevention, early detection and management (including health literacy and self management). Follow up work on cancer which has already been undertaken, including relevant actions suggested by the European Partnership Action against Cancer.

The effects of health inequalities within and between EU MS are widely recognized,and reducing health inequalities is on the agenda of many MS. Moreover new challenges like the huge migration flows and the economic crisis and austerity policies that affect EU citizen’s everyday life are worsening the scenario. Despite an increasing concern and awareness on health inequalities, a wide gap exists in Europe in terms of political response.
The Joint Action Health Equity Europe will represent an important opportunity for MS to work jointly to address health inequalities and underlying social determinants of health.
The general objective of the project is to improve health and well-being of the EU citizens and achieve greater equity in health outcomes across all groups in society by a focus on socio-economic determinants of health and lifestyle related health inequalities. A particular priority will be given to migrants, since poor health and lack of access to health services can be an obstacle to integration.
This Joint Action aims to: deliver a policy framework with a menu of actions and recommendations for national, regional and local uptake and implementation; develop better policies improve monitoring, governance, implementation and evaluation; implement good practices and facilitate exchange and learning; identify factors of success, barriers and challenges and how to overcome them.
The Joint Action will contribute meeting two objectives of the Third health Program by introducing the equity lens in “Objective1: Promoting health, preventing diseases and fostering supportive environments for healthy lifestyles taking into account the ‘health in all policies” and in “Objective4: Facilitating access to better and safer healthcare for Union citizens”.
This Joint Action will follow a three-step approach that will facilitate: identification of policy options to tackle health inequalities; implementation of feasible and effective actions in all MS involved; elaboration and dissemination of further recommendations and guidelines.
