Every five years we get the opportunity to have a say on what is important to us with the European Parliament Elections and new Commission. This campaign is our chance to encourage politicians and policy-makers to commit to a healthier Europe where patients are part of the solution to make health systems more effective and quality-oriented.
Supporting this campaign means that, when we will cast our ballot on 22-25 May 2014, we will be confident to vote for patients' friendly candidates who work towards achieving this ideal healthcare. In other words, working for a healthier Europe, as outlined in our Manifesto “Patients + Participation = Our Vote for a Healthier Europe”
We are supported by our 63 members composed of European disease-specific organisations and national patients’ coalitions from across the EU Member States. Collectively we represent the interests of a large constituency of 150+ million people living with chronic diseases across the European Union.We therefore represent a high proportion of voters for the next EU elections. We hope our voice will be heard by decision-makers and that they will add a patients’ perspective in their work.
