PH Work Closing Conference

"Workplace Health Practices for Employees with Chronic Illness"
Conference on Promoting Workplace Health

On 22-23 October 2013, the 9th ENWHP initiative 'Promoting Healthy Work for Employees with Chronic Illness - Public Health and Work (PH Work)' was concluded with a large conference in Brussels.

The aims of this conference were to raise further awareness about the impact of chronic diseases on the labour market and the social security and to exchange and improve knowledge and cooperation of all stakeholders about the possibilities to retain workers with a chronic disease, or facilitate their return-to-work. 

The conference reunited stakeholders from public health and workplace health organisations, representatives from major public health and workplace health EU policy stakeholders. Workplace health strategies, as well as good practices and recommendations on job retention, early intervention or return to work were presented to the public.
