European doctors launch ambitions to continue building European Health Union to President Metsola
The Health Check 2024-2029 sets out a vision for the EU’s health priorities ahead of the upcoming European Parliament election in June.
We urge European policy-makers to:
Tackle the health workforce crisis
Ensure a safe digital transformation of healthcare
Enable healthier living
Guarantee accessibility and effectiveness of medicines
Take climate action for better health
“Whilst European countries have made huge advances in collaboration on health in recent years, we cannot take a step backwards.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that health is the foundation of our economy and society, and exposed that problems that have not been solved. Our health systems still suffer from deep structural flaws and our health workforce is exhausted and undervalued.
“The European Health Union is not complete: the EU needs a coherent long-term vision for health in Europe and beyond for equitable access to healthcare for patients.
“European doctors remain strongly committed partners in making these ambitions a reality.”
