Tackling chronic disease in the workplace - Workshop

28 September 2018

The rising tide of chronic illness is having a significant impact on the European workforce, too often resulting in lower labour market participation and productivity or early retirement. This CHES workshop looked into the impact on the labour market of chronic diseases and discussed existing initiatives and prospects for a better integration of health and workplace policies. The event was chaired by Simona Guagliardo, Junior Policy Analyst, European Policy Centre (EPC).

Speakers included: Iveta Nagyova, President of the Section on Chronic Diseases, European Public Health Association (EUPHA); Stefan Joris, General Director, Belgian Cystic Fibrosis Association; Rebekah Smith, Social Affairs Deputy Director, BusinessEurope.
