Citizens’ priorities in EU health policy: how to tackle Europe’s key healthcare challenges in the 2019 to 2024 term

A lunchtime discussion hosted by Incisive Health

Citizens’ priorities in EU health policy¬†ahead of the upcoming European elections is what we discussed today with key stakeholders from the EU health policy environment in Brussels.

Policymakers, patient organisations, industry, representatives of Europe’s regions and key healthcare providers came together to talk about how the health policy community can join forces to ensure that health remains at the top of the EU’s agenda and that the concerns of European citizens are addressed by policymakers – in Brussels and in EU member states.

The discussion was kicked off with an exclusive sneak-preview of the results of our polling on citizens’ priorities in EU health policy.

Key takeaways from the meeting include the need for stakeholders to collaborate even more, including through private-public-partnerships (PPPs), and the importance of working together with healthcare practitioners, patients and women in particular, in order to make our healthcare systems more egalitarian for the benefit of all citizens across Europe.

Inspired by today’s lively discussion, we will now turn the findings from the polling into a report, which will include insights into what European voters in eight EU member states think about EU health policy and what they expect policy makers to do in the new term.
