In tackling the pandemic, the EU has taken centre stage in areas of public health and healthcare that were previously the sole domain of national governments and brought into focus the ambition for a deeper European Health Union. However, bolder action is needed to achieve a European Health Union and to ensure that health and well-being is seen as the highest priority of the European project.
This multi-faceted event will bring together a wide range of experts to share perspectives and best practices about the inclusion of an Economy of Well-being into national and Union policies as a key to achieving a sustainable, healthy and socially inclusive recovery.
Join our multi-faceted event on how to ensure that health and well-being are taken into account in the decision-making process and on the role of the EU in health policies.
This event will be moderated by EURACTIV Journalist and Presenter Jennifer Baker,
and will gather representatives and experts from the European institutions, the civil society and the industry.
