The EU Health Programme outlines the strategy for ensuring good health and healthcare.

The Programme focuses on major Commission priorities, such as: 

  • Jobs, growth and investment (health of population and health care services as a productive factor for growth and jobs) 

  • Internal market (for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cross-border health care directive, and Health Technology Assessment) 

  • Single digital market (including eHealth) 

  • Justice and fundamental rights (fighting against health inequalities) 

  • Migration policy 

  • Security (preparedness and management of serious cross-border health threats). 


In the 2014 – 2020 framework, the Health Programme is in its third phase and is called the Third Health Programme.
