2022 EU4Health work programme adopted to invest over €835 million in health

Today the Commission has adopted the second EU4Health work programme. In 2022, the EU4Health will continue to invest in building stronger, more resilient health systems and pave the way for the European Health Union. With a budget of over €835 million, the new work programme will provide an unparalleled level of EU investment in health and ensure ambitious and decisive action in four focus areas: crisis preparedness, disease prevention, health systems and healthcare workforce, and digitalisation.

The EU4Health Programme supports building a European Health Union including the fight against COVID-19 pandemic, Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, and the Pharmaceutical Strategy for Europe, and the European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (‘HERA’).

The programme will provide funding to eligible entities from Member States, associated third countries, international organisations, NGOs and the private sector in the form of grants or procurement of specific services. NGOs will be able to apply through an open call for operating grants, as well as for action grants on various topics. The European Commission and the Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA) will manage the programme.
