Health policies in the EU

The European Union comprises:

  • The Member States
  • The EU Institutions

There are currently 27 EU Member states. To become a member, each State must complete a lengthy application process during which it must demonstrate compliance with EU rules for democratic processes, rights and the body of law and must be unanimously accepted by all other members.

The Directorate-General for Health and Consumer Protection (DG SANCO ) is responsible, in collaboration with the Member States, to protect and promote the health of European people.
