Epode International Network Year in Review 2014 – 2015 has been published. We are excited to share the highlights and milestones of our network, which grew from 36 members in 24 countries to 43 members in 29 countries during the last year.
In 2014, EIN brought its members and stakeholders together via regional conferences with the aim of facilitating collaboration between community-based programmes and key players from the public, private and scientific arenas. Another highlight of this year was the signature of an agreement between EIN and its Ministers’ Club with Pedro Luis Noble and Richard Visser last November 2014 aside the Obesity Week conference. It demonstrates increasing international political collaboration to improve the approach to obesity prevention.
This year, not only has EIN been working to put obesity prevention at the top of policymakers’ agendas, we have also continued to pioneer several research projects. Over the last 12 months we have seen significant progress from EIN’s two European research projects: EPODE for the Promotion of Health Equity « EPHE » and Obesity Prevention through the European Network « OPEN ».
