ENERCA is a project cofunded by the European Commission through its Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC). As a matter of fact, the aims of ENERCA are closely linked to the strategic objectives of the EU Health Programme, which particularly focus on reducing health inequalities across the European Union and tackling rare diseases through an Europe-wide network.
ENERCA also relates to one of the main objectives of the Commission’s Work Plan, “putting citizens first”. It includes improving patient safety and the quality of health services. National and local patients’ organisations have a key role to play in disseminating information and promoting patient empowerment; the ENERCA website and the training initiatives will definitely provide a meeting place for them.
