The European Action in Global Life Sciences (EAGLES) Health Programme is a communications project that will strengthen the European responses to the global challenges posed by poverty related diseases in the developing world. The project has been designed and will be implemented by a group of leading life scientists in the health area from Europe and the developing world.


The EAGLES Health Programme was proposed by the members of the Health Committee of the European Action on Global Life Sciences (EAGLES), is a high level network of scientists and humanitarians from Europe and the developing world focusing on the health sector. The project also recognises the relationships of the health sector with food and water, as well as the environment and energy sectors, which are covered by two other fora of EAGLES. EAGLES intends to facilitate, through better communications, those European programmes and policies in the life sciences that are directed towards the needs of the developing countries and emerging economies.
