Health must be a priority
UEHP actions for 2019 will be dedicated to advocating on the importance of healthcare in all EU policies ahead of the upcoming European elections next May 2019. “We need to promote health in all policies, health must be a priority”, as recently repeated by EU Commissioner for Food and Health, Vytenis Andriukaitis, soon reaching the end of his mandate. His message must be heard by Governments, authorities and civil society representatives for international cooperation and positive experience. We are engaged on different initiatives at EU and national level to promote a Healthy Europe for all citizens. We spread information from Brussels to our constituencies on EU Directives and Regulations, as well as on the eligibility for private hospitals to participate to European funding programmes. And we care about our planet and the next generations: European hospitals will not only be “smart” in the future but “green” too. We want to implement our projects respecting both people and earth. The renewal of UEHP Board and of myself as President during our last General Assembly is a new start for UEHP, always at work for our patients.
Dr Paul Garassus
President of UEHP
