New Chafea booklet on EU-funded actions for better preparedness and coordination in health crisis now available

The HEALTH THREATS 2009-2018 booklet on the  EU-funded actions for better preparedness and coordination in health crisis presents several actions funded under health programmes that have helped to improve health security in the EU. It was produced by the Chafea Health unit, in collaboration with health security experts and the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety.

These activities implement the Decision on Serious Cross border Health Threats to Health (1082/2013/EU) and complement, support and provide added value to the policies of the EU Member States to improve the health of EU citizens, increase their safety and protect them from serious cross-border health threats of chemical, biological, environmental or unknown origin.

The booklet will be launched during the Conference on Best practices in implementing the International Health Regulations (IHR), which will take place on 7-8 June 2018, in Athens, Greece.
