In March 2021, EuroHealthNet provided input on the European Commission’s Communication on Europe’s digital decade – 2030 digital targets. Following President von der Leyen’s proposal for a common digital plan towards 2030, this Communication sets out a vision of what a successful digital transformation will mean for Europeans by 2030.

The digital transformation of our societies is on its way and the years to come are crucial to define how this process will be steered. Health and social inequalities are prevalent in most European societies, and the digital transformation offers an opportunity to tackle them. On the other hand, should challenges and barriers to inclusion not be addressed today, the digitisation process could exacerbate pre-existing inequalities and their manifestations among various population groups.

In its response, EuroHealthNet sets out 7 recommendations to ensure that the strategy helps reduce rather dan increase inequalities. Find the response here.
