Health civil society disappointed in low EU ambition to achieve a sustainable Europe

By 7 February 2019No Comments

On February 6, members of the #EU4Health Campaign – a joint initiative of  health civil society organistions from Europe that want EU to do more for health  – have reacted to the European Commission’s Reflection Paper: Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030, expressing regret that this political debate is three and a half years overdue and just before the mandate of the current Commission comes to an end.

In a reaction letter, #EU4Health members call for a bold, robust, ambitious and urgent political response to the social dimensions of sustainable development to help to achieve sustainable and patient-centred universal access to health and reduce increasing health inequalities in Europe.
