Joint Action on Chronic Disease

CHRODIS-JA - addressing chronic diseases and healthy ageing across the life cycle

EWMA is a collaborating partner in the programme, which is initiated by the European Commission and runs from 2014-2018.

The objective of EWMA engagement in the CHRODIS-JA is to work towards increased focus on how to prevent and treat diabetic foot ulcers, which are one of the most common complications to diabetes. To achieve this EWMA engages primarily in the work package (WP) 7 of the CHRODIS-JA.

Representation in the CHRODIS-JA is taken care of by Professor Alberto Piaggesi, University of Pisa, Italy, who is a member of the EWMA Council, and by the EWMA secretariat.
