MyHealth project comes to answer, by developing and implementing models based on the knowhow of a European multidisciplinary network, the need to reach out Vulnerable Migrants and Refugees (VMR) on their Health. In particular, women and Unaccompanied minors as one of the most vulnerable group.

It has been reported that, as local population, this very heterogeneous group is facing challenges in health related issues.
The main aim of MyHealth is to improve the healthcare access of vulnerable immigrants and refugees newly arrived to Europe, by developing and implementing models based on the knowhow of a European multidisciplinary network.
Secondary objectives:
1. Develop a complete interactive map, with main health issues, main actors and stakeholders, reference sites dealing with MREM, legal and organisational aspects of Health systems in the involved countries, and the ICT tools available.
2. To define more clearly the current health problems of migrants treated in our health centres.
3. Define and develop health intervention strategies in Mental Health/Communicable and non communicable diseases, based on the community health approach.
4. Develop and ICT based platform to support new tools, enhance Health applications development and health information
5. To implement the defined strategies and models in pilot over the hospital participating in the consortium.
6. To ensure training and involvement of all the key actors in the Health system value chain. From users to management.
7. Ensure a sound management and communication strategy for MyHealth.

Outcomes:
Interactive map available online.
Pilot survey on current health status and concerns conducted.
Health promotion best strategies identified.
Pilot Models successful evaluated.
Existence of guide for integration of ICT Solutions for VMR.

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.

For reducing underage and heavy episodic drinking, action needs to be taken by authorities closest to the citizens and where alcohol consumption actually takes place – on the local level. A coordinated local alcohol strategy has proven to be the most promising approach. Municipalities have the public responsibility and power for implementing such a strategy and are the appropriate authority for this task. With “Localize It!” municipalities will be supported in developing and implementing custom-fit local alcohol strategies.
Localize It! aims at strengthening municipalities in their capacity to reduce underage and heavy episodic drinking. Coordinated and custom-fit local alcohol strategies will be developed, implemented and evaluated for two municipalities each in AT, BE, CY, CZ, DE, EL, IT, NL, LU, PT and SK. Seven different settings for alcohol prevention will be addressed including parental work, schools, children in families with alcohol problems, alcohol in public space, party scenes, festivals, gastronomy & retail, refugees and traffic safety. For each setting good practices will be researched, assessed and exchanged at a European conference. Those good practices will serve as a pool of measures for individual local action plans.
By means of a Rapid Assessment and Response (RAR) an overview of the individual local situations will be provided and awareness of the problem will be raised among relevant local actors/stakeholders. Round tables will be established in the municipalities which will function as steering committees. The round tables will develop individual action plans for one of the seven settings, including at least four different measures. The development of local and European networks as well as the specific measures will be evaluated by means of a process and outcome evaluation.

The general objective of the Joint Action – Innovative Partnership for Action Against Cancer (iPAAC JA) is to develop innovative approaches to advances in cancer control. The innovation that will be covered within the JA consists of further development of cancer prevention, comprehensive approaches to the use of genomics in cancer control, cancer information and registries, improvements and challenges in cancer care, mapping of innovative cancer treatments and governance of integrated cancer control, including a new analysis of National Cancer Control Plans. The development of innovative approaches to cancer control will be supplemented by a Roadmap on Implementation and Sustainability of Cancer Control Actions, which will support Member States in implementation of iPAAC and CANCON recommendations. The Roadmap will act as the central pillar of the JA, integrating the diverse topic areas, providing synergies between the topics, ensuring consideration of transversal issues for all topics and acting as the central comprehensive deliverable, integrating all the JA outputs. A variety of methods will be used to fulfil the general and specific objectives including pilot studies, working groups, expert panels, literature review and surveys. A governmental board will be in place to ensure that implementation and sustainability in national contexts are duly considered for each topic area. The proposal for the iPAAC JA proposes actions to address objective 1 of the 2017 annual work programme, that is promoting health, preventing diseases and fostering supportive environments for healthy lifestyles taking into account the ‘health in all policies’ principle. The work to be developed by the iPAAC JA is complementary to the outcomes of the EPAAC and CANCON Joint Actions, funded by the Second and Third Health Programmes and will build on their outputs, using the stakeholder networks as an optimal base for the development of innovative cancer control actions.
