Commission calls for best practices on non-communicable diseases

Non-communicable diseases represented 80% of the EU’s disease burden before the COVID-19 pandemic. Trying to address this challenge, the European Commission is calling for best practices focusing on prevention and management of non-communicable diseases: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases, mental health and neurological disorders, and health determinants, as part of the ‘Healthier together’ – EU Non-Communicable Diseases Initiative.

To support EU countries with reducing the burden of non-communicable diseases and improving citizens’ health, the European Commission invites governmental and non-governmental actors to submit proposals for best practices via the EU Best Practice Portal by 15 May 2022 (midnight CET).

After this date, the European Commission will invite the owners of the top-ranked best practices to present them to representatives from EU countries.
