Our European Health and Well-being Deal is here!
The “European Health and Well-being Deal” advocates for well-being to be a core principle in policymaking. It stands as our most ambitious manifesto yet, calling for a proactive paradigm shift in perspective that promises a brighter future for European society.
Central to the “European Health and Well-being Deal” is the “health in all policies” principle which emphasises the interconnectedness of health with other policy areas and the advantages that health-conscious policies can bring to public life. The manifesto advocates for the integration of health and well-being considerations into all EU policy areas by promoting a set of high-level recommendations for the next mandate of the EU, addressing both legislative proposals and EU institutional structure.
