The EU4Health Civil Society Alliance, of which EPF is part of,  has published a letter to European Commission President nominee Ursula von der Leyen calling for the appointment of a Vice-President for Health, Wellbeing and Social Rights.

This appointment will ensure that: 

  • Health is maintained as a political priority on the EU agenda and the lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic are applied. 
  • The European Health Union is further implemented, strengthened and deepened, with appropriate funding under the next Multiannual Financial Framework (2028-2034). 
  • A strong and coordinated EU health policy to counter current pressing challenges and ensure access to healthcare.
