Health and European Union Structural Funds

From Ben Cave:
We invite you to visit http://www.healthgain.eu/ for a new guide to Health Gains from Structural Funds

We are currently testing this guide and we welcome your comments and thoughts.

The guide explores how health gains can be achieved through the full range of EU Structural Fund investments: it is open for testing from today until 20 December 2011.

The guide is being developed for the European Commission. It has been designed to help Structural Funds programme managers and health stakeholders to better understand the impacts – positive and negative – of Structural Fund programmes on public health. The evidence of the links between health and socio-economic development can be used to strengthen integration of public health issues into Structural Fund programmes. The guide has been tailored to the current Structural Funds and the proposals for Cohesion Policy in 2014-2020.

Your feedback on the guide is extremely valuable, and we will use it to revise and prepare the final version.

There is an evaluation page on http://www.healthgain.eu/content/evaluation

Thank you – we look forward to your comments!
