The main aim of JA:EHLEIS is (i) to provide a central facility for the co-ordinated analysis and synthesis of life and health expectancies to add the quality dimension to the quantity of life lived by the European populations, (ii) provide evidence of inequalities between Member States (MS) and (iii) highlight potential targets for public health strategies both nationally and at a pan-European level.
Two previous projects have been conducted to promote the Structural Indicator HLY, based on the development of an Information System and research work to monitor health trends and gaps in Europe.
During the first phase (2004-2007) the EHEMU project developed several summary measures of population health (SMPH) indicating the quality of the remaining years that a person is expected to live (i.e. free of chronic disease, free of disability and in good perceived health).
In the second phase (2007-2010) the EHLEIS project began to systematically monitor health trends and gaps among the European countries and to identify their determinants through the survey instruments developed by EHEMU and included in the new pan-European survey SILC (European Statistics on Incomes and Living Conditions) and SHARE (Survey on Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe).

In the framework of the new Europe 2020 Strategy (2011-2020), the JA EHLEIS (2011-2014) aims to:

  • increase the utility of the SMPH through consolidation and further development of the EHLEIS Information System,

  • the comparability with SMPH for the United States and Japan and

  • the use by Member States in national policy-making. In particular the JA EHLEIS will contribute to the first partnership of Innovation Union, which focuses on active and healthy ageing and with the target of increasing by 2 years the average number of healthy life years by 2020. The JA EHLEIS will firstly enable this partnership to be properly monitored by the previously developed SMPH. Secondly the JA EHLEIS will contribute towards identifying the main determinants of healthy life in Europe, thus offering new avenues for policies targeting increases in HLY.

The specific objectives of JA:EHLEIS are to:

•  consolidate the existing information system (EHLEIS);

•  continue developing in-depth research;

•  undertake research;

•  Integrate the previous European Task Force on Health Expectancies into an annual meeting to further engage Member States and promote SMPH use in policy-making.

The JA:EHLEIS provides scientific support to Member States in general, health and non-health policy makers at national, European and OECD level, health professionals and researchers, media and the general public through successive projects of the Community action programmes for public health.
