SEFAC Final Event

SEFAC (Social Engagement Framework for Addressing the Chronic Disease Challenge) is a project funded by the European Union's Third Health Programme.

The Final Conference of the project  took  place on Friday April 16th 2021.

The main aim of the event was to provide insights into the methodologies used in the SEFAC project and in the results obtained. Experiences from different involved stakeholders were discussed, and other European projects, such as the Horizon 2020 Value Care project, were presented. Furthermore, European Networks, such as the Covenant on Demographic Change, PROMIS (Programma Mattone Internazionale Salute), EUREGHA (European Regional and Local Health Authorities), ELISAN (European Local Inclusion and Social Action Network), and ENSA (European Network of Social Authorities) were involved in discussions about policy challenges and future use of the project’s  findings.

All SEFAC partners participated at the event to share their experiences and learnings. Moreover, the SEFAC book was released and presented, which contains detailed the project interventions and represented a  useful tool for stakeholders, communities and citizens across Europe.
