European solidarity facing Cancer, the iron curtain remains closed

Dr Paul GARASSUS, UEHP President

Portuguese Presidency ready to deliver… Health has never been so present in European politics

JANUARY 2021 – This semester Portugal takes over the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU), at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic and its socio-economic consequences represent an unprecedented challenge for the EU and its Member States.

The central motto of the Portuguese presidency is “time to deliver” and in Health, the goal is, on the one hand, to take new steps regarding cooperation between Member States, in order to increase the capacity of health services to respond to public health threats and, on the other hand, highlight the EU’s role in global health.
