The headline goal of the ‘Health, Demographic Change and Well-being’ Societal Challenge is better health for all. Its main policy objectives are to improve health and well-being outcomes, to promote healthy and active ageing, to promote market growth, job creation, and the EU as a global leader in the health area. The challenges to this goal derive from the ageing of European population and lifestyle patterns, which, if not actively managed through a lifecourse approach, will increase the burden of chronic diseases on individuals, on existing health and care systems and on society. This will also result in increase of public expenditure coupled with labour force and productivity losses.
