On 11 December, EUREGHA High Level Conference will be held in Brussels. This year’s theme will be “Linking Chronic Diseases and Frailty; Creating Synergies and Collaboration between Efficient Policies for Disease Prevention and Management at European and Subnational Level”. Introductory remarks will be given by Mr Xavier Prats Monné, Director-General of the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety of the European Commission.
With chronic diseases being the main cause of death in Europe, affecting more than 80% of people aged over 65, and frailty being intimately linked to the ageing population and chronic diseases, the conference aims to discuss the links between frailty and chronic diseases. Concrete tools and strategies available to promote the prevention and management of chronic diseases and/or frailty at European, regional and local level will also be highlighted. Representatives from the European Institutions will further participate in an interactive panel discussion on how health systems can strengthen health promotion and prevention to tackle chronic diseases and frailty.
