The general public, interest groups and organisations are all able to contribute to the EU's health-related activities through structures set up by the European Commission. These structures encourage buy-in from the public and professionals, ensuring that useful exchanges take place, and resulting in evidence-based policy-making.
EU Health Policy Platform
The EU Health Policy Platform is the main forum for communication and cooperation between health interest groups and organisations, and the European Commission. It also improves communication among these organisations.
EU Health Award
Through the EU Health Award, the European Commission highlights outstanding contributions to healthcare or health policy in their community.
Each year, the EU Health Award covers a different topic with good practices included in the EU Health Policy Platform to inspire others to adopt similar approaches.
