In the spotlight
A Pharmaceutical Strategy: the right prescription for a strong European Union of Health

Sandra Gallina, Director-General of DG SANTE, talks about the new EU Pharmaceutical Strategy, adopted on 24 November. Its goal is to give the EU’s pharmaceutical policy a long-term vision: to ensure it is crisis-resilient and sustainable, and to reinforce our position as a global leader in this critical area while ensuring access to affordable medicines for patients.

Commissioner's corner

"2020 will forever be remembered as the year the worst global health crisis in modern times broke out. But I would also like it to be remembered as the year where we listened and lived up to the citizens demands for more Europe in the area of public health." (Commissioner Stella Kyriakides at the press conference on Building a European Health Union, 11 Nov. 2020).
