"The way the EU’s budget is spent will influence Europe’s ability to face future health threats and emergencies. We must prepare now by not only addressing the bio-medical health needs, but also the psycho-social and environmental determinants of health, building resilience and enabling people to live in good health" - Caroline Costongs, EuroHealthNet Director.

EuroHealthNet, the not-for-profit European partnership of public health bodies, has published a comprehensive overview of funds and programmes in the new EU budget and their relevance for health. The publication covers health funding, social, environmental, economic recovery, and other mechanisms. The analysis explains how different areas of the budget can be used to improve health, tackle health inequalities, and build resilience to future health crises while enabling a sustainable recovery.
