The area of health transcends the boundaries of several disciplines touching all aspects of life and survival on this planet. Under the burden of the rising incidence of chronic disease at increasingly younger ages and among the most deprived groups of the population, the need to find evidence-based solutions for a multitude of illnesses poses a great challenge to researchers from diverse fields of scientific endeavour.

The increase in the Life Expectancy indicators and, at the same time, the decrease in the number of Years of Healthy Life, translates into huge economic costs on health systems, which acknowledge the need to focus on prevention rather than treatment in order to tackle chronic disease at its source. 

The rising volume of evidence demonstrating that patients with multiple health problems are the rule rather than the exception has highlighted the need to shift focus from traditional single-disease based approaches towards a more anthropocentric philosophy of healthcare. 

In view of all abovementioned, our organisation aspires:

·         To contribute to the development of the worldwide published clinical evidence base for several areas related to the maintenance of health and the prevention and treatment of illness.

·         To provide a resource of evidence-based information for both health professionals and the public seeking answers to health problems

·         The penetrate and investigate areas affecting health, which fall beyond the boundaries of the traditional health sector in order to shed light into the wider socioeconomic determinants of health

·         To provide evidence in support of the imperative for more anthropocentric approaches to healthcare, on the basis of biochemical individuality and genetic uniqueness

Testimonials

"Where Do I Belong?" Youth Exchange - Romania was an experience I wish everyone could have. The project focused on many topics that we deal with on a daily basis such as migration, refugees, inequality, barriers of different kinds that we both face and place for others to overcome. All activities were interactive and challenged the participants to come up with creative ideas, solutions or performances in a short period of time. The activities were made in a way to interact with people from different nationalities, religions & backgrounds and to question all our beliefs and cultural norms. 

Everything we did was inspiring and entertaining, a way to learn by doing and a way to learn from the others. I enjoyed every single moment and strongly recommend participating to anyone who enjoys international environment and learning in unconventional ways. 

Thank you all for being who you are, sharing your thoughts and ways of doing and special thanks to the organizers who outdid themselves! :)
