In light of the Health Programs Conference held in May (Brussels), the European Commission has just published a second edition of its report ’Health for the EU in 33 success stories’.
The 33 success stories cover 10 public health issues: 1.Health threats; 2.Blood and organs; 3.HIV/AIDS and STDs; 4.Chronic diseases; 5.Cancer; 6.Rare diseases; 7.Nutrition and healthy lifestyle; 8.Health inequalities; 9.Youth and 10.Health information.
John Dalli, the European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, referred in the report’s foreword to the booklet that “these projects show, for example, how the [Commission’s] Health Programme has helped to better understand the issue of smoking uptake by young people and by women in particular, to raise awareness on cardiovascular disease and diabetes, to help implement screening for cervical and colorectal cancers and allowed the development of a worldwide online source of information on rare diseases, Orphanet Europe. Some projects have also supported innovation in health in concrete ways: improving understanding on how to set up electronic health records and introducing personalised medicine.”
