Value+ Promoting Patients’ Involvement in EU supported health-related Projects The basic premise of VALUE+ is that patients’ meaningful involvement enhances health project results, which can contribute more effectively to policy towards patient-centred, equitable healthcare throughout the EU. EU health policy reflected this premise, but a concerted strategy was needed to achieve patient involvement in reality.
The objective of the VALUE+ project was thus to exchange information, experiences and good practices among key stakeholders in relation to the meaningful involvement of patients’ organisations in EU supported health projects at EU and national level.
The project achieved a comprehensive overview and analysis of practice and trends regarding patient involvement in EU health supported projects. The project contributed to raise awareness about the added-value of involving patients’ organisations in projects, as well as to increase the capacity as patients’ organisations of getting involved in projects as equal partners and of applying for and managing EU supported projects through different project information tools:

The partners were European patients’ organizations, national patient’s platforms and a research firm with expertise in patients’ advocacy, and health related awareness- raising, research and policy.The associated partners were:
