Banner EuroHealthNet Consultation Response

EuroHealthNet has responded to a consultation for the EU Strategy for Data, which aims to create a single secure European data space. The strategy should make it easier for businesses and public authorities to access an access data to boost growth and create value, while reducing the EU economy’s footprint. Among other things, EuroHealthNet emphasised the need to improve digital literacy to help people manage their data, and for standardisation of data to avoid exacerbating inequalities and to avoid discrimination. It also highlighted the potential of data altruism to improve outreach to vulnerable and isolated communities, and advised against making datasets with sensitive health and social data freely available.
