New EU4HEALTH programme

29 May 2020

IDF Europe welcomes the strategic vision of the new EU4HEALTH programme put forward by the European Commission that will support a long-term ‘One Health’ vision of improving health outcomes through efficient and inclusive health systems across EU Member States.  

These will be achieved through better disease prevention and surveillance, health promotion, access, diagnosis and treatment, as well as cross-border collaboration in health. The new programme will also address non-communicable diseases, which the COVID-19 pandemic has shown to be strong determinants of mortality. 

In her opening remarks at a press conference held on May 28, Stella Kyriakides, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety announced that the stand-alone funding programme for health of 9.4 billion Euros will allow “to face the challenges brought to light by the crisis and strengthen national health care systems”.
