Governing Board of CHRODIS PLUS

To be nominated during 2017

The CHRODIS PLUS Governing Board is established in order to generate synergies between EU Members States and EEA countries with EU institutions on the health agenda on chronic diseases and healthy ageing. It is comprised of nominated representatives of health ministries of Members States, EEA countries, representatives of the European Commission and the European Region of the World Health Organization (WHO).

The main activities of the GB are to keep relevant policy-makers informed, contribute to guide the technical work and the strategic progress of CHRODIS PLUS Joint Action and to support the development of a sustainability plan based on keeping chronic diseases at the forefront of the political agenda for health after the end of the Joint Action. The Governing Board meets once a year.
