Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the TaSHI website.  On this website we provide detailed information, qualitative and quantitative data, and evidence-base for the project entitled “Empowering EU health policies on Task SHIfting”. The 3-year long project – started in April 2021 – is co-funded by the 3rd Health Programme of the EU, therefore our activities aim to produce a novel understanding and up-to-date knowledge on task shifting, as well as to foster dialogues on transferability and uptake of good practices in Europe. Task shifting can contribute to more effective organisation of care and human resources for health management at different levels, so committing to improve efficient and sustainable health systems in innovative ways.

We invite you to actively participate in the discussions on useful tools and methods in task shifting, so that we can all contribute to the co-creation for more efficient, accessible, and resilient health systems and workforces in Europe.

Evaluation of communication and dissemination activities of TaSHI

As the halfway of the TaSHI project is approaching, we are currently carrying out a stepwise evaluation process in order to capture the outreach and analyse the effectiveness of the dissemination and communication activities.
In the evaluation exercise, selected groups of TaSHI members, advisors and stakeholders are invited so we can build up a clear picture about the dissemination and communication activities.

We believe that your opinion does count a lot to check the efficiency of our messages and channels; therefore we invite you to fill in our 5 minutes evaluation survey.
