The proposal concerns the EPF 2017 work programme arising from the three-year framework agreement between EPF and Chafea in the framework of the EU Public Health Programme 2014-2020. EPF’s Work Programme (WP) 2017 is the third annual programme implementing the three-year Framework Partnership Agreement signed in 2014 with Chafea. As such, the 2017 WP builds on and takes forward the outcomes of our WP 2015 and WP 2016. The 2017 WP will contribute specifically to addressing the six strategic goals expressed in our Strategic Plan 2014-2020. (www.eu-patient.eu/whatwedo/ ).
Our 2017 WP addresses the continuum of care with focus on patient-centred chronic disease management, patient empowerment, and equitable access to high quality health and social care. The WP contributes significantly to the objectives of the Third Health Programme, in particular Obj. 3 “supporting public health capacity building and contributing to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems” and Obj. 4 “facilitating access to better and safer healthcare”.
EPF 2017 WP revolves around four operational objectives:
OBJECTIVE 1 - To promote the development and implementation of policies, strategies and services that foster the empowerment of patients and patient organisations.
OBJECTIVE 2 - To promote the development and implementation of policies, strategies and healthcare services that maximise access and reduce health inequalities across the EU.
OBJECTIVE 3 – To reinforce the capacity of patients and patient organisations to contribute effectively to better health and social care for all patients in the EU, while enhancing their accountability and mutual solidarity.
OBJECTIVE 4 – To actively engage with the wider health stakeholder community and policy makers to advance the patient-centred agenda at both national and European level.
