18-19 november XIV EUROPEAN PATIENTS’ RIGHTS DAY - Fighting paradoxes on AMR in the age of Covid-19: One Health Approach is planned, multiple actions are required
Brussels, 19 November 2020
Antimicrobial resistance: one of the ten most urgent threats for the Global Health but totally underestimated among the populations; more dangerous than car accidents & cancer but not enough prioritized in the EU and National public health policies. Interlinked with Covid-19 pandemic but almost ignored by the media. The world is losing its most powerful tool in healthcare: antibiotics. By 2050 super bacteria could cause 350 million of deaths and meantime research is still waiting for EU incentive mechanisms as well as an overall strategy to integrate the development of - and access to - affordable and quality antimicrobials.
Despite the fight against AMR requires policies focused on the prevention and extension of vaccinations, the health expenditure for prevention programmes are the “Cinderella” of the public health budget.
“WE WERE NOT BORN TO SUFFER ": campaign on the access to palliative care and pain therapy launched by Cittadinanzattiva
“We were not born to suffer": this is the name of the campaign launched today by Cittadinanzattiva, ten years after the law 38/2010 which regulates access to palliative care and pain therapy and which puts our country in a leading position for citizens' rights.
Delivering patient value throughout the healthcare system
Focus on Digital Health and Personalized Medicine
Patient access to digital health innovation must be a shared responsibility of all the stakeholders involved in the health sector: private and public bodies have to collaborate.
In view of the next European elections, we ask more certainties that Digital Health and Personalized Medicine will be considered by the European Institutions among the priorities for the next years.
4 APPS AWARDED TODAY IN BRUSSELS AS BEST PRACTICES IN THE 2ND EUROPEAN CIVIC AWARD ON CHRONIC PAIN PROMOTED BY ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP NETWORK-CITTADINANZATTIVA (06 November 2019)
4 best practices activities have been awarded today in Brussels, thanks to the second edition of the “EU Civic prize on Chronic Pain”, promoted by the Italian NGO Active Citizenship Network-Cittadinanzattiva during the annual symposium on the “Societal Impact of Pain” (SIP).
Active Citizenship Network (ACN) launched the project ”EU Civic Prize on Chronic Pain - Collecting good practices” to give evidence of the existing good practices in Europe in terms of struggle against pain, and based on the selection of the practices presented by different healthcare stakeholders. The prize provided an occasion for demonstrating what the community can offer in terms of good practices as well as sharing experiences useful for raising awareness about the condition, enhancing the body of knowledge of positive cases and success, and strengthening commitment on this topic. Throughout 2018 and 2019, this initiative has allowed us to collect 40 Good Practices coming from 12 different countries: Spain (13), Italy (10), Portugal (5) Belgium (3), France (2), Malta (1), Sweden (1), Germany (1), The Netherlands (1), Ireland (1), UK (1), and an extra EU country (1 from the Dominican Republic).
Delivering patient value throughout the healthcare system: a debate on citizens' expectations
The civic society and patients’ advocacy groups committed to improve health and well-being across Europe are aware that the political context following the upcoming European elections could be characterized by less or no significant EU action on health. This is not how it should be. Citizens and patients are political actors who understand and recognize the advantages of having a strong and harmonized European health policy.
