EPHA (Aisbl) is the European Platform bringing together public health organisations representing health professionals, patients groups, health promotion and disease specific NGOs, academic groupings and other health associations.

Chronic diseases represent 86% of mortality and 77% of the disease burden in Europe. EU member states spend 9-10% of GDP on healthcare. 80% of this spending goes towards the treatment of chronic diseases, amounting to around EUR 700 billion per year. Much of this is preventable.

Despite the existence of many well-evidenced health policy recommendations, too few of these have become a reality in Europe. This conference will focus on how to use new levers and different levels of power to unleash action to prevent chronic diseases and deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals.
