Currently chronic diseases are one of the heaviest burdens of health and social care systems in Latvia and Europe in general. The list of chronic diseases in 21st century has been complemented with diseases that were so far considered incurable, like as pulmonary hypertension and cancer. Considering ageing of the population and increase in life expectancy, regardless of the type of disease, these are interests of patients with chronic diseases to reintegrate in full-fledged social and economic life, and participate in the workforce as much as possible, thus becoming a long-term economic investment, not a burden. According to the “Europe 2020 strategy” the goal is to maintain 75% of the working-age population employed and productive. To facilitate this, it is important that patient organizations act in collaboration with professionals, decision-makers and other stakeholders, emphasizing issues at the national and international level, and offering action-oriented solutions at national and European levels thus contributing to a stronger, competitive and inclusive Europe.
