EPHA’s Contribution to the SANT Subcommittee Report on non-communicable diseases (NCDs)

The European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) is proud to announce its significant contribution to the ongoing discussions and policy formulations of the SANT Subcommittee concerning the Own-Initiative Report on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) prevention and management. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to fostering effective, evidence-driven, and equitable health policies across Europe.

In an exemplary display of collaboration and expertise, EPHA worked closely with an array of members, partners, and expert advisors to review and suggest amendments to the draft report on NCDs. This collective effort focused on key areas such as the harms of alcohol consumption, the impact of social and economic determinants on health, including marketing of unhealthy products targeting minors, availability and quality of data, and the vulnerabilities of NCD patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, among others.

This work would not have been possible without the invaluable insights and feedback from our esteemed network. Significant contributions were made by:

  • Alcohol Action Ireland (AAI)
  • Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL)
  • Eurochild
  • European Alcohol Policy Alliance (Eurocare)
  • European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL)
  • European Cancer Organisation (ECO)
  • European Respiratory Society (ERS)
  • International Diabetes Federation – European Region (IDF)
  • International Organisation of Good Templars (IOGT-NTO)
  • Mental Health Europe (MHE)
  • Smoke Free Partnership (SFP)
  • Professor Nick Sharon – Scientific Advisor on NCD prevention at EPHA
  • Paul Belcher – EPHA’s Senior Advisor
  • Professor Frank Murray – EASL PH committee

In our continued effort to influence and guide health policies, we have disseminated these amendments to all members of the SANT Subcommittee, including policy advisors from various European parties. Our aim is to ensure that the perspectives and recommendations from our collaborative network are understood and considered in policy-making processes.

We believe that our collective efforts will pave the way for more effective, inclusive, and sustainable health policies in Europe. As we continue this journey, we invite you to stay informed and engaged with our initiatives.

Our detailed list of suggested amendments is available below for review.
