Call for Proposals on Prevention of NCDs
The European Commission (EC) is seeking proposals on the prevention of NCDs – cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and other NCDs.
Cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are leading causes of death globally. While behavioural risk factors are key to preventing these diseases (and are addressed by other actions in this work programme), other complementary, specific and targeted public health measures can prove essential to reduce their associated burden. Among others, voluntary cooperation on hypertension, primary care or testing or screening may play a role in dealing with these challenges.
To promote impact, national authorities will be supported to embed improvements in national policies. In parallel, NGOs as well as professional and patient groups will have the opportunity to engage in the implementation of complementary actions. Such engagement may include the provision of input for the preparation of public health guidelines, awareness actions, training, piloting or other actions that can benefit citizens directly.
The aim of this action is to reduce the burden of NCDs and related risk factors, targeting:
cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, both at an individual and societal level, namely by supporting the NCDs policies and corresponding actions led by the Member States;
NCDs other than the five action strands of the initiative ‘Healthier Together – EUNCD Initiative’ and cancer; such as chronic kidney diseases and liver diseases, auto-immune diseases, musculo-skeletal conditions, etc.
Amount: 5 000 000
Further to the special conditions illustrated at section 2 of this call document, in order to be eligible for funding, the applicants (beneficiaries and affiliated entities) must:
be legal entities (public or private bodies)
be established in one of the eligible countries, i.e.:
EU Member States (including overseas countries and territories linked to it (OCTs))
