Chronic Disease Alliance launches Call to Action on Employment

The European Chronic Disease Alliance (ECDA - of which EKHA and thus ERA-EDTA is a core member), presided over by EKHA Chairman Prof Raymond Vanholder, yesterday launched policy recommendations to increase employment opportunities for the 1 in 4 Europeans of working age who suffer from a chronic condition. Prof Vanholder officially presented  the Call to Action to the European Commission during the EU Health Policy Platform Forum in Brussels yesterday, organised by the European Commission DG SANTE. Prof Vanholder’s presentation can be viewed online here (minute 58:45—1:21:30).
Over the last year the European Chronic Diseases Alliance has been leading a thematic network on the topic of the employment of people with chronic diseases on the EU Health Policy Platform hosted by the European Commission. The Call the Action represents the culmination of this work.  To date 25 organisations from the health, social and employment sectors have endorsed in the work.
Please see the press release as well as the infographic representing the key elements of the ‘Employment of People with Chronic Diseases’ Call to Action.
