Public Health Policy in the EU
Latest news about Public Health Policy in the European Union.
Under the Treaty, EU action must aim to improve public health, prevent human illness and diseases, and identify sources of danger to human health.
This has led to integrated health-related work at EU level, aiming to bring health-related policy areas together. Health and consumer protection policies are particularly closely linked. The safety of products and services - including food safety and rapid food alerts - are key priorities here.
