Better Research for Better Health: EuroHealthNet’s comments and recommendations

27 September, 2016
Banner EuroHealthNet Consultation Response

EuroHealthNet has been invited to respond in writing to a consultation on the European Commission’s Scientific Panel for Health (SPH) Vision paper Better research for better health. The paper presents key recommendations for health and biomedical research under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.

While acknowledging that the paper presents some interesting points, EuroHealthNet fears that the paper’s approach is almost exclusively from a biomedical point of view, and calls for a more holistic approach.

Through the consultation’s response, EuroHealthNet highlights how to achieve health and well-being for all the issue should be seen from a wider perspective that considers social and environmental determinants as having as much impact on health as biological and genetic factors.
