Members news, /

Active Citizenship Network (ACN), is glad to invite you to the next EU Webinar: Therapeutic adherence during the COVID-19 pandemic across Europe: impact, experiences and perspectives from PAGs & relevant stakeholders which will be held on the 31st January 2023 from 14:30 – 16:00 CETRegister here! (registration is free but mandatory)



The initiative wishes to promote an EU policy dialogue on therapeutic adherence, with the aim to better contribute – starting from citizens’ and patients’ perspectives – to understanding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the therapeutic plans for chronic patients, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the actions and reactions implemented by PAGs and relevant stakeholders in front of the community of experts and Institutions.

The starting point will be the main data collected thanks to the survey carried out by Active Citizenship Network, EU branch of the Italian NGO Cittadinanzattiva, with the direct involvement of 38 PAGs across Europe. The data and the recommendations collected show the inadequate attention of the institutions and the main stakeholders in relation to access and continuity of care for non-Covid-19 patients, as better explained in the introductory article “Encouraging across Europe the civic & patient advocacy groups’ engagement in the implementation of National Resilience and Recovery Plans to reduce the burden of Covid-19 pandemic on NCDs patients’ therapeutic adherence”, drafted by Active Citizenship Network and published by the “International Journal of Epidemiology And Public Health Research” peer-reviewed journal.

The event is realized in the context of the homonymous multi-annual EU project “Therapeutic adherence during the COVID-19 pandemic across Europe: impact, experiences, and perspectives from PAGs & relevant stakeholders”, focused on socializing the common elements or specificities that the pandemic’s impact has had on therapeutic adherence and supporting the unmet needs of chronic patients.
