The European Nutrition for Health Alliance


Welcome to the ENHA...

The European Nutrition for Health Alliance works with key stakeholders to improve nutritional care across Europe by actively promoting:

1. Implementation of nutrition risk screening across Europe
2. Public awareness
3. Appropriate reimbursement policies
4. Medical education

With our large network of members, partners and expertise giving a truly European perspective, ENHA is at the forefront of developing good nutritional practice.

The Optimal Nutritional Care for All (ONCA) campaign

ENHA is the driving force behind the Optimal Nutritional Care for All (ONCA) campaign, which is a multi-stakeholder initiative launched in 2014 to facilitate greater screening for risk of disease-related malnutrition/undernutrition and nutritional care implementation across Europe.  The ONCA campaign aims to engage with diverse stakeholders in selected focus countries to:

  • Encourage them to form/strengthen a national alliance of stakeholders and develop national nutritional care plan
  • Facilitate these stakeholders to benchmark current status in order to develop an aligned view on the current state of play with respect to nutritional care in a given country
  • Bring these stakeholders together at an Implementation Conference
  • Use this event to define and reconfirm the nutritional care strategies for subsequent implementation at national level
