European Commission publishes Horizon Europe health cluster calls

Saturday 28 August 2021

Alzheimer Europe has submitted a response to the European Commission’s consultation on the Annual Work Programme 2022 of the EU4Health programme. Due to the character limits in the consultation survey, Alzheimer Europe submitted an additional paper, setting out its views on the priority areas for the Annual Work Programme for 2002. The consultation response:

  • Briefly refers to the ongoing engagement of Health NGOs on the subject of Operating Grants
  • Highlights the prevalence and mortality figures for dementia in Europe
  • Notes the variation and insufficient level of services for people with dementia
  • Highlights the international prioritisation of dementia, e.g. by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Following on from these points, Alzheimer Europe’s submission calls for the reintroduction of Operating Grants for health NGOs, a dedicated programme of work of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and support for policy platforms such as the European Group of Governmental Experts on Dementia. The full submission can be read at:
