Press conference by Vytenis Andriukaitis, Member of the EC, on the state of health in the EU

122 views

On 23 November 2017, Vytenis Andriukaitis, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Food Safety, gave a press conference on the state of health in the EU, in Brussels. The EC published on the same day the 28 Country Health Profiles, along with a Companion Report. The reports provided an in-depth analysis of EU Member States' health systems. Only by rethinking those the EU could ensure that they remain fit-for-purpose and provide patient-centred care. They looked at the health of the population and important risk factors, as well as at the effectiveness, accessibility and resilience of health systems in each EU Member State. The reports clearly reflected shared objectives across the Member States, and revealed potential areas where the European Commission could encourage mutual learning and exchange of good practices.
