Welcome to the 1st Newsletter of CHRODIS PLUS Joint Action
There is a wealth of knowledge within EU Member States on effective and efficient ways to prevent and manage chronic diseases, and there is great potential to reduce the burden of chronic diseases by making better use of this knowledge.
CHRODIS PLUS Joint Action actively contributes to this exchange of models and policies on chronic diseases. To keep you involved and updated on project developments we will send you all together 6 newsletters during the project period, one newsletter every 6 months.
This first newsletter provides an overall introduction to CHRODIS PLUS. The upcoming newsletters will introduce the main results of the core activities of the Action.The final newsletter, issued in the first half of 2020, will summarise all the results of CHRODIS PLUS.
