EWMA Conference 2018

Building on JA-CHRODIS, what can we do to reduce the burden of chronic diseases?

Learning objectives:

JA-CHRODIS is a European Joint Action that brings together over 70 associated and collaborating partners from national and regional departments of health and research institutions, from 25 countries. These partners have worked together to address the burden of chronic diseases and to identify, validate, exchange and disseminate good practices on chronic diseases across Europe.

JA-CHRODIS focussed on three key areas: health promotion and primary prevention, multimorbidity, and prevention and care of type 2 diabetes. In the frame of the JA-CHRODIS, diabetes is considered a case study on strengthening health care for people with chronic diseases.
