The EU Health Policy Platform presents the 2021 Joint Statements

May 2022 – Following the EU Health Award Ceremony on 4 May, the EU Health Policy Platform concluded its annual meeting to present the final 2021 Joint Statements by the Thematic Network leaders.

Thematic Networks are set up for one year to cooperate and speak with one voice on health topics suggested by the European Commission as priorities for EU health policy.

The 2021 Thematic Networks have now finished their annual working cycle and are seeking endorsement from the public health community. These Thematic Networks are:

  • The Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) is calling for action on Climate and health education in Europe.
  • The European Nutrition for Health Alliance advocates on Integrated Nutrition Cancer Care.
  • The Interest Group on Supranational Biolaw from the European Association of Health Law is working towards an inclusive pharmaceutical strategy for the EU.

By “endorsing” the Joint Statements, you show support for a particular initiative and the organisation that is leading it. So how do you give your endorsement? Contact their leaders! Join them in the EU Health Policy Platform!

Participants from all over Europe joined the online discussion, together with speakers from the Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety.

Watch the recording and find the presentations and the final Joint Statements calling for endorsement.


The EU Health Policy Platform is an interactive tool that brings together the European Commission and health stakeholders to discuss public health concerns and to share knowledge and best practices. It gives its more than 5,000 registered users the opportunity to post news and events, to collaborate and to work together on Joint Statements in Thematic Networks. Set up in 2016, its objectives are to provide a framework for dialogue and facilitate targeted discussions, to ensure transparency and to contribute to building knowledge and expertise on public health issues.
