EU Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Knowledge Gateway launched
The EU has launched its Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Knowledge Gateway, a complete and user-friendly online platform with up-to-date information on key prevention elements of non-communicable diseases. The Gateway presents key data, definitions, policy updates and recommendations for best-practices and actions on diet and physical activity, as well as alcohol-related harm and marketing of food and (non-alcoholic) beverages to children and adolescents. Furthermore, it showcases societal impact aspects and the economic cost of non-communicable diseases.
Created in collaboration with public health experts in EU Member States, the Gateway seeks to present structured and succinct public health information for decision- and policy-makers, public health professionals and the general public alike.
The EU Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Knowledge Gateway is hosted by the EU Joint Research Centre and can be found here.
