Linking evidence, policy, and practice

EuroHealthNet has developed and manages two repositories of knowledge, evidence, and good practices on healthy ageing and health inequalities.

The European Portal for Action on Health Inequalities (www.health-inequalities.eu) includes information about key initiatives, policies, and resources on Health Inequalities across Europe. It includes databases of publications, projects, and polices related to reducing health inequalities, as well as information on European funding for Health Inequality projects.

The Healthy Ageing website (www.HealthyAgeing.eu) contains information and resources such as good practice examples, guides to healthy ageing, EU initiatives, publications, news, and events related to healthy ageing in Europe.
