Title
EU Project unveils obesity & smoking trends across Europe and shows how primary prevention is the key to a healthy future
Date23 September 2015
Year 2015
Summary
The European Heart Network (EHN) has published a press release about the EConDA final conference.  The project (lead by the UKHF), which lasted 2.5 years, showed how ‘upstream’ prevention interventions focusing on reducing people’s exposure to risk factors before a chronic disease has occurred is generally more cost-effective in terms of healthcare savings – including social care, welfare costs and losses in productivity - than treating an individual for a chronic condition.
