Preparing Future of EU Investments in Health

The Commissioner for Regional Policy and Commissioner for Health and Food Safety have brought together the health professionals to kick-start the reflection on future EU investments in health under the 2021-2027 Cohesion Policy programs. In the context of the roundtable held on Tuesday at the Commission with health associations such as European Health Management Association and EuroHealthNet, the Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Crețu and Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Andriukaitis launched a pilot project to improve cross-border emergency services in the Pyrenees between the border regions of France, Spain and the Principality of Andorra. They also announced health will be this year’s new category for the RegioStars Awards. The discussion concluded that health systems are evolving towards more education, health promotion and disease prevention. They are also shifting away from hospital and institution-centered care to community-based care and towards integration of health and social care. With new policy objectives that allow for integrated investments in health, social inclusion and education, the Commission’s proposal for the 2021-2027 Cohesion Policy provides the conditions to support these changes. – United News of India
