EuroHealthNet has engaged with its national, regional, and local health experts to analyse how the European Semester process can affect the health and wellbeing of European citizens, and address existing inequalities.
The European Semester is the EU’s annual cycle of policy coordination. It reviews the economic and – since recently – social situation in Member States and in the EU as a whole. It makes country specific recommendations at national level to bring Europe towards commonly agreed goals.
EuroHealthNet’s report contains guidance for both the European Commission and public health actors to help to assess and enhance their efforts in making full advantage of using the Semester, the European Pillar of Social Rights and EU funding mechanisms to improve public health and health equity.
