EuroHealthNet worked within a consortium of partners on the ESIF for Health project to explore the impacts the ESIF had on health in 2014-2020 period by mapping Member State programming and project spending. The idea was to uncover the extent to which the funds are supporting different types of health-related interventions. The project also compared spending trends with the main EU policy objectives, as well as relevant national objectives set out in the European Semester process, which coordinates economic, fiscal, and recently social policy across the EU. The objectives relate to the need to manage public spending pressures that have been caused by population ageing and the growing prevalence of chronic diseases. They also refer to encouraging labour participation by preventing health-related exits from the workforce.
