The aim of the Schools for Health in Europe (SHE) network is to improve the health of children and young people in Europe, including reducing health inequalities, through a specific setting focus on schools. The network supports its members to further develop and sustain school health promotion by providing a European platform for school health promotion.
For 2015-2017 4 specific objectives are formulated. By the end of 2017:
• the functioning of national and regional health promoting school networks and the implementation of health promoting schools has been supported by sharing good practices, expertise and skills;
• the professional development of SHE network members and other stakeholders has been supported by the delivery of the SHE support programme;
• the visibility and access to evidence based information on school health promotion has increased by the delivery of publications and presentations;
• the dissemination of school health promotion research findings and innovative research consortia has been promoted.
Methods to achieve these objectives are: organising annual meetings and capacity building workshops. Maintaining SHE website, helpdesk, share information through newsletters and social media and by encouraging regional and cross-border cooperation. Developing online school twinning tool and the SHE online school manual. Developing an e-learning tool, organising a summer school, support publications and consultancy visits. Making SHE leaflets, factsheets, an online glossary and by representing the network at international conferences.
The health of children and young people are and will be a key priority for the European Commission. The activities in the network relate directly to the first overall objective of the third programme of community action in the field of health (2014-2020) and thematic priorities 1.1 till 1.4 are high priority issues in school programmes and settings. The SHE network encourages a whole school approach to these priorities.

In 2015, in recognition to its achievements, SFP was awarded the prestigious Luther L. Terry Award for Exemplary Leadership in Tobacco Control for Outstanding Organisation by the American Cancer Society. In 2016, SFP will continue to live up to this recognition by striving towards the fulfilment of its three year plan objectives:

1. Promote and support smoking prevention at EU and national level through the development of advocacy strategies that deliver specific EU tobacco control policies.

2. Promote and support smoking prevention at international, European and national level through the development and implementation of the FCTC, its protocols and guidelines.
3. Mobilise and strengthen the capacity of European and national civil society to complement, support and add value to the policies of the EU and of the Member States.

4. Strengthen SFP’s institutional capacity to enable it to meet its goal and objectives.

The SFP Coalition Annual Work Programme for 2016 will reinforce SFP Coalition policy work by providing tobacco control activities and deliverables in accordance with its strategic priorities and will continue to build upon the groundwork laid down in 2015. It will also assist to achieve the final goal of the SFP Coalition’s three-year work plan which is to improve the health of EU citizens and reduce health inequalities by promoting smoking prevention at EU and Member State level with a special focus on measures that prevent the uptake of smoking by young people. This will be done through a high level of cooperation, coordination and advocacy work of SFP Coalition with advocates, academia, researchers and policy makers.

Proposal for a Specific Grant Agreement 2019 [EPHA 2019 SGA]

EPHA’s proposal for a Specific Grant Agreement (SGA) 2019 has been designed to be as coherent as possible with EPHA’s 2018-2021 Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA). It provides a problem analysis for the activities proposed, taking into account current developments and evidence that are influencing public health.

The proposal defines the 2019 operational SMART objectives in each priority area and how they relate to the multiannual objectives outlined in the FPA. Each 2019 objective is broken down into concrete activities, milestones and deliverables.

In line with the FPA, EPHA is seeking funding to continue working in eight thematic priority areas: prevention of chronic NCDs, access to affordable medicines, antimicrobial resistance, digital health, healthy trade policy, improving access to healthcare for disadvantaged groups, financing for public health, and capacity building. One of the main differences between the 2019 SGA proposal and previous years is that more emphasis will be placed on establishing synergies between these areas. This will enable EPHA to be more results-oriented by fostering cross-fertilisation of ideas and action, strengthening the evidence base and working effectively as a network through our diverse membership. A strong focus is placed on ensuring transfer of knowledge between the EU and national level to support the priorities of the 3rd Health Programme and the European Commission, and to emphasise the added value of EU health policymaking.

Moreover, the proposal describes the planning and implementation of EPHA’s Work Programme, including the resources required to accomplish it (staff and budget), the target audience(s) for each activity and how deliverables will be disseminated. It also shows how the work will be evaluated, with indicators provided for each objective. The final part explains how EPHA’s operational and financial management structure supports the successful delivery, with a detailed budget accompanying the proposal.

2021 Specific Grant Agreement - European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) [2021-SGA-EPHA]

EPHA's 2021 SGA proposal includes the continuation of activities in eight thematic priorities, designed to conclude the multiannual 2018-2021 FPA and reach its objectives. This will provide ongoing support to all areas of the Third Health Programme despite its formal expiry at the end of 2020.

Crucially, EPHA proposes to broaden its activities in light of the new European Commission priorities announced in 2019, and the significant socio-economic challenges, policy and funding opportunities for public health resulting from the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak. Moreover, 2021 will be a year of transition for EPHA as a new Strategic Plan will be implemented that will contain flexible policy clusters. Therefore, the 2021 SGA proposal incorporates activities in relation to the pandemic recovery process, the EU Green Deal, increased digitalisation and other pressing issues.

A big focus will be placed on developing EPHA's "financing for health" thematic priority, which suffered from lower resources in previous years. Given the the unprecedented EU funding available to tackle health threats and ensure health systems strengthening, EPHA aims to play a key role in ensuring that available funding streams will be spent wisely, inter alia to boost prevention, avoid new health/social inequalities and avoid austerity policies in health.

EPHA’s annual work programme will provide added EU value by supporting policymakers and civil society through the development of policy recommendations, best practice exchanges and peer learning, linking up EU and national public health stakeholders and building capacity.

The work will be undertaken by EPHA’s Secretariat team, supported by interns, trainees and external consultants contributing to specific deliverables and milestones.

Start date: 01/01/2021 - End date: 31/12/2021

This multicentre project aims to foster health promotion interventions and environments suitable for patients, their families, and health professionals. The strategy is based on the Health Promoting Hospitals (HPH) framework with a strong emphasis on evidence based prevention.
The ultimate goal of this project is achievement of measurable improvements in population health through comprehensive promotion of healthy behaviours in diverse and complementary categories of individuals.
The project would focus on vulnerable patients presenting with acute manifestation of an underlying chronic condition, and on those they have stronger bonds with. Both patients and their families are assumed—in line with theory and evidence—to feel more susceptible to illness and more open to realize
