Recommendations From ENWHP's Ninth Initiative

Using the slogan "Work. Adapted for all. Move Europe", the ninth ENWHP initiative focuses on the promotion of healthy, suitable work for those suffering the consequences of a chronic illness - either through enabling job retention or by supporting their return to work (RTW).

Data on existing sustainable work strategies, policies and good practices with regard to workers with chronic conditions were collected in 17 European countries. Based on this information, a European Guide to Good Practice for employers and a set of policy recommendations were created. 

You can read the key recommendations by the ENWHP on how to promote healthy work for chronically ill employees in our leaflet:
