March 2021 – EU for Health: work in progress

While the COVID-19 crisis is an extremely difficult time for all of us, it is also a starter for progress, giving us the opportunity to include positive experiences.
What did we learn? That solidarity matters, we know that European collaboration is key to achieve common goals. In line with the Health Commissioner´s concerns, Thierry Breton, the European Commissioner for Internal Market recently declared that all forces are engaged to provide the best chances for European citizens.
The next step will undoubtedly be moving towards a real European dimension of Health regulation. Barriers according to the Lisbon Treaty must be broken to achieve this goal of coordination.
As caregivers, we remain engaged in the everyday fight against the disease, but we are also looking forward to new perspectives, shaping the next future of Europe, achieving the European Green Deal goals but also Sustainability, Solidarity and Efficient EU solutions in Health programs.
