EuroHealthNet, the not-for-profit European partnership of public health bodies, has published a comprehensive overview of funds and programmes in the new EU budget and their relevance for health. The publication ‘Seizing the opportunities for a healthy recovery - Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 and NextGenerationEU' not only covers health funding, but also social, environmental, economic recovery, and other mechanisms. The analysis explains how different areas of the budget can be used to improve health, tackle health inequalities, and build resilience to future health crises while enabling a sustainable recovery.

Public Health Foresight in Light of COVID-19
In 2020, a group of senior public health officials from national and regional public health agencies across Europe came together to discuss current developments in Public Health and implications for the future. This report reflects their insights into some of the most pressing societal challenges and trends for public health in the years ahead, adopting a broad definition of health which encompasses social and environmental factors. This exercise was lead by EuroHealthNet and the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
The conclusions of this exercised include recommendations and pathways for:
- National and regional public health institutes
- The European Commission
- International agencies and organisations

European Semester Analysis 2019: Social sustainability and economic progress: it's time for a new narrative
here continue to be big differences in health outcomes between groups of people and between countries in the European Union. To address these inequalities and to improve health for all, we need a new narrative on economic and fiscal policy. A process-focused, holistic approach is now needed, one which incorporates social sustainability and health equity. The European Council Conclusions on the Economy of Wellbeing1, set for adoption this week, are a crucial development. The European Semester is an important tool for implementation.
Today, EuroHealthNet publishes its assessment of the 2019 European Semester, the EU’s annual cycle of economic and social policy coordination, from a health equity perspective.
Infographic on health inequalities in Europe
There continue to be big differences in health outcomes between groups of people and between countries in Europe. This infographic provides an illustrated overview of the health Inequalities in Europe, and what we can do to overcome them.
Health outcomes and health inequalities are influenced by the social, economic, and environmental determinants of health – the conditions in which we are born, grow, live, work and age.
Health Inequalities reduce economic and social productivity. They cost €980 billion per year, the equivalent of 9.4% of GDP. A 50% reduction in gaps in life expectancy would provide monetised benefits to countries ranging from 0.3 – 0.4% of GDP.
Good health enables both economic and social participation in daily life. In surveys, people consistently state that they value health above all other aspects of their lives. They are also concerned about growing inequalities.
Reducing social and health inequalities is possible, represents a good investment, and has strong public support.
Financing Health Promoting Services - an information guide
This document is the first stage of an online information tool on financing health promoting services. The guide originated from an initiative by the Coalition of Partners of the WHO European Region.
This document served as a basis for an online Financing e-Guide highlighting how to overcome existing gaps in investment in health promoting services by providing concrete, ‘out-of-the-box’ examples of how investment can be mobilised. The e-Guide is available here: health-inequalities.eu/financing-e-guide
