[POSTPONED] Media Partnership: European Health Union – not a wishful thinking, but reflection of real concerns of Europeans

[POSTPONED] Media Partnership: European Health Union – not a wishful thinking, but reflection of real concerns of Europeans

The time has come to put European health on its feet. According to the existing treaty, health is left as just a concern of Member States competencies. Statistics show that there is an abyss between the health systems of the EU Member States.

Healthcare expenditures per capita differ considerably between the states. The situation is exacerbated by the COVID-pandemic.

According to Eurobarometer research, the majority of Europeans insist that healthcare should be included on the list of most important decisions.

The participants of the discussion will touch upon:

- how current European health policy corresponds to the expectations of European citizens;
- proposals on how to improve Europeans’ health state;
- how to create a European Health Union and establish it in the Treaty of European Union.

Participants of the discussion are sure that no time is left to postpone European Health issues for the future.
