Managing Director

"High levels of stress lead to depression and increased cardio-vascular diseases. It is time we step up our actions to develop healthy working environments. Family-friendly policies and measures for a healthy work-life balance have many benefits and are important examples of how that can be done. EuroHealthNet is keen to support the Workplaces Manages Stress Campaign and to promote it among its member health agencies in Europe. "

Mission statement:
EuroHealthNet is a not-for-profit partnership of bodies publicly responsible across the European Union for health promotion, public health and disease prevention measures, and particularly addressing health and social inequities. EuroHealthNet aims to stimulate and support actions addressing the Social Determinants of Health and Health Inequalities and ultimately contribute to better health for European citizens. The stakeholders we collaborate with include our members, a huge variety of decision-makers and policy-makers at EU, national and regional level as well as the broader community of academic institutions and stakeholders active in the fields which influence the social determinants of health. Our strategic purpose is: • To improve the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age • To promote sustainable economic, social and health equity • To address priority public health conditions and determinants • To measure problems and understand solutions. Our work and the services that we provide rest on three pillars: - The European Centre for Innovation, Research and Implementation for Health and Well-Being (CIRI); - Health Promotion Europe (HPE); - The EU Platform for Action on Health and Social Equity (PHASE).
