For decades health promoters have called for whole of government approaches and reorientation of health systems. The current social and economic environment now demands that. EuroHealthNet applies and implements what is known and engage with sectors previously excluded or insufficiently involved in design and implementation of solutions. EuroHealthNet also strengthens public health capacities, adopts new approaches to health promotion and disease prevention and provides more research on barriers and enablers to implementation.
Through our Strategic Plan 2014 – 2020, EuroHealthNet is planning for a sustainable future and to make a major contribution to health, equity and well-being across Europe. We implement and promote actions that support the concept of health in all EU policies, programmes and practices. Most importantly, EuroHealthNet continues to build on its success. It will retain its values in an updated Framework Partnership.
We will continue to offer:
- Experience of running a high quality international network of leading health promotion agencies across Europe
- Reputation for delivering high quality outputs from projects and studies
- Sound governance for reliable, trustworthy and ethical approaches
- Accountability and stability in management and resources
- Quality assurance for health and equity in all policy and practice approaches
Financing and Transparency
EuroHealthNet has been part of the EU Transparency register since 2009
EuroHealthNet’s funding comes from Member and Partner fees, a core grant from the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), and cofunded project grants. It continues to try to increase the proportion of funds from direct participation to improve self-governance. We take pride in working in a transparent, ethical, and independent way. This is reflected in the integrity of our work in evidence building, advocacy, and policy development. In 2016-2017, as in previous years, no funding came from private sources. An external accountant prepares annual financial and balance reports, which are then certified by a separate advisory and accounting firm. The General Council checks and approves the financial reports at its annual meeting. The audit reports for 2016, 2015, and 2014 are available online; for previous years, contact EuroHealthNet
EuroHealthNet started receiving a core grant from the EaSI programme in 2014, and in 2016, an external financial audit was carried out on behalf of the EC covering the first year of the funding. This audit was completed quickly and successfully, with no reconciliation required.
Clear rules and guidelines for procurement, asset and financial management, and risk assessment are well established and set out in the ‘How We Work’ document, available on request.
