Mission Statement
EuroHealthNet is a not-for-profit partnership of bodies publicly responsible across the European Union for health promotion, public health and disease prevention measures, and particularly addressing health and social inequities. EuroHealthNet aims to stimulate and support actions addressing the Social Determinants of Health and Health Inequalities and ultimately contribute to better health for European citizens. We collaborate with a great variety of stakeholders, such as our members, decision-makers and policy-makers at EU, national and regional level as well as the broader community of academic institutions.
Our strategic purpose is:
• To improve the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age
• To promote sustainable economic, social and health equity
• To address priority public health conditions and determinants
• To measure problems and understand solutions.
Our work and the services that we provide rest on three pillars:
- Health Promotion Europe (HPE);
- The European Centre for Innovation, Research and Implementation for Health and Well-Being (CIRI);
- The EU Platform for Action on Health and Social Equity (PHASE).
Our campaign pledge
We pledge to raise awareness of the risks of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), especially for low paid workers.

Caroline COSTONGS
Managing Director
“Many organisations do not invest enough in employee wellbeing, including timely proactive and early interventions that prevent ill health. From a health equity perspective, there are specific concerns about work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). We know that certain workers are more prone to experience MSDs and certain workplaces struggle to prevent them. Employers lack incentives to invest in prevention. Occupational health services tend to be used for rehabilitation rather than workplace adaptation and health promotion. We must work together to raise awareness of actual costs of ill-health at work and encourage workplaces to improve mental and physical health and wellbeing for all.”
