Over its 3-year lifespan the aim of CHRODIS PLUS Joint Action (2017-2020) has been to support member states in overcoming the burden of chronic diseases by promoting policies and practices that have proved successful in the past. Further refinement and EU cross-border sharing of these tested policies and good practices has been the core idea behind this pan-European project.

CHRODIS PLUS has implemented 21 pilot projects aimed at testing tools and good practices for certain chronic diseases, and held 16 policy dialogues (14 national and 2 EU-level ones). It has brought together over 50 partners from 21 European countries.

All good things come to an end: CHRODIS PLUS will hold its closing online conference on 27 October 2020.

This conference will illustrate the impact that CHRODIS PLUS has had on public health systems across EU member states over the past 3 years. It will focus on showing how the good practices, models and tools implemented by the project can be tailored to various national and local settings across Europe.

The conference’s presentations and roundtable discussions will be structured around the project’s key focus areas:

  • Health Promotion & Primary Prevention
  • An Integrated Multimorbidity Care Model
  • Fostering Quality Care for People with Chronic Diseases
  • ICT-based Patient Empowerment
  • Employment & Chronic Diseases


Recordings of the conference and supporting reading material are available here.


CHRODIS+ was a high level response from EU countries to step up together and share good practices to alleviate the burden of chronic diseases. 42 participating institutions from 18 EU countries plus Norway, Serbia and Iceland worked together to achieve the common goal.
