Health Priorities - EU
European health strategy

The European strategy on health matters places health issues at the heart of all Community policies in order to protect European citizens better and to improve their health. In particular, it concerns facing up to the growing problems and major health risks, such as pandemics and bioterrorism.

The strategy also defines the objectives and priorities in response to the main challenges in terms of health matters. It also strengthens Community cooperation in those fields where Member States cannot act on their own, and contributes to disseminating knowledge and information on the subject. Finally, it supports research, particularly on new technologies, in order to improve disease prevention and patient safety.
