FRESHER in Sole24Ore’s Premier magazine

The FRESHER project, along with ISINNOVA’s Giovanna Giuffrè, recently appeared in Italy’s Premier magazine, a publication released monthly by the prestigious financial newspaper, Sole24Ore. The half-page article discusses how the use of foresight and scenarios can help policy makers make decisions that positively impact health choices and health outcomes.

FRESHER, which was funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, presented alternative futures where emerging health scenarios were used to test future policies designed to tackle the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The project produced quantitative estimates of the future global burden of NCDs in the EU and its impact on health care expenditures and delivery, population well-being, health and socio-economic inequalities, and potential changes in these impacts according to alternative health and non-health policy options.
