EU4Health 2022 Work Programme response

27 August, 2021
Banner EuroHealthNet Consultation Response

The EU4Health programme is the main instrument to tackle core health issues and support healthcare systems’ resilience. The consultation launched by the European Commission sought to collect feedback from stakeholders on the priorities, strategic orientations and needs in healthcare that would shape the upcoming annual work programme for 2022, and beyond.

In its response, EuroHealthNet outlined that the programme needs to:

  • Better incorporate psychosocial and environmental factors in health promotion and disease prevention actions, reducing health inequalities as a core objective
  • Facilitate the sustainable upscaling of health promotion and disease promotion by supporting the transition to health-promoting health systems, continuing the exchange of good practices, and strengthening health system capacity for better collaboration with key non-health sectors to transition to an economy of wellbeing
  • Support the participation of citizens and patients by restoring Operating Grants for civil society organisations to improve their capacity to support programme objectives, and by introducing a broader range of action-oriented calls for more meaningful stakeholder involvement.
