Public Health Europe - European Commission - EU
On 1 March, 2017, 24 thematic European Reference Networks began working, gathering together over 900 highly specialised healthcare units from 26 countries. Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, says the value of EU collaboration is particularly clear in the case of rare and complex diseases.
On 1 March the newly established European Reference Networks (ERNs) will start their work. ERNs are unique and innovative cross-border cooperation platforms between specialists for the diagnosis and treatment of rare or low prevalence complex diseases.
