EIT Health Education Projects

H-ALIGN Aligning stakeholders’ cooperation for health systems outcomes improvement

Health systems are complex and high-value solutions are not implemented by the stroke of a pen: they require behavioral change in several stakeholders who need to act in alignment. H-align is an EIT Health Education project that aims to train healthcare ecosystem stakeholders to work in alignment with other significant actors in the co-design and implementation of high-value solutions for better system outcomes. HALIGN will consist of a training course module based around a simulation game co-developed with and for healthcare system stakeholders to offer close to reality experiential learning.

EIT Health Innovation Projects

MJN-SERAS – Improving quality of life for people with epilepsy in Europe

The EIT Health Project MJN-SERAS aims to improve the physical and emotional well-being of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy, by developing an innovative wearable, discrete and noninvasive device, based on an earpiece, that will alert both the patients and their caregivers 1 to 3 minutes before a seizure occurs. Allowing both the patients themselves and their caregivers to have some time frame to safely prepare the occurrence of the seizure, will not only lead to a reduction of danger accidents during unexpected seizures, but will also lead to an important reduction in the anxiety experienced by the patients and their caregivers.

ARISE – Nutrint Reducing nutrition-related noncommunicable diseases in adolescence and youth: interventions and policies to boost nutrition fluency and diet quality in Africa (Grant agreement no. 101095616)

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are a major public health problem, resulting in over 70% of global deaths each year; the majority (85%) of deaths occur in low-and middle-income countries. While cost-effective, evidence-based best practices are available, implementation of these interventions has remained a critical challenge, particularly ones targeted at promoting health behaviors among adolescents and youth in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

AMR DetecToolAntimicrobial Resistance DetecTool

The spread of bacteria resistant to antibiotics is a growing threat to publlic health. It is estimated that 33,000 people die each year as a direct consequence of an infection due to antibiotic resistance.
