Kohezijska politika EU-a ulaže u zdravlje – ključan resurs regionalnog razvoja i konkurentnosti – radi smanjenja gospodarskih i socijalnih nejednakosti. Ulaganja se tiču raznih područja, poput sve starijeg stanovništva Europe, infrastrukture zdravstva i održivih sustava, e-zdravlja, zdravstvenog osiguranja i promotivnih zdravstvenih programa.
Zdravlje je kvalificirano za potporu prema nekoliko od jedanaest prioriteta Kohezijske politike u razdoblju od 2014. do 2020., uključujući tematske ciljeve 2 – Informacijsko-komunikacijske tehnologije, 3 – Male i srednje velike tvrtke, 8 – Zapošljavanje, 9 – Društvena uključenost i 11 – Institucionalni kapacitet.
Ulaganja ESI fondova u zdravlje usko su povezana s okvirom zdravstvene politike, uključujući procjenu potreba i isplativost.
An important principle of the Cohesion Policy Funds for 2021-2027 continuous to be the integrated approach to funding and programming. This serves not just to provide improved coordination, but also to achieve integrated development. In the health sector, integrated funding can help ensure the more effective interlinking of actions to address problems. The following key areas can by funded by the European Regional Development Fund (EDRF) and the European Social Fund (ESF+):
- European Regional Development Fund – support to equal access to health care and fostering resilience of health systems, including primary care, and promoting the transition from institutional to family- and community-based care, health infrastructure and equipment, integration of care between primary healthcare (e.g. facilities for general practitioners, nurses), secondary healthcare (e.g. facilities for specialists, outpatient clinic) and tertiary healthcare (e.g. acute and long-term care hospitals, emergencies services), e-health, mobile health, telehealth, public information systems and telemedicine, as well as transnational and cross-border activities to enhance resilience and effectiveness of healthcare service provision.
- European Social Fund + : promotion of a healthy and well-adapted working environment addressing health risks, active and healthy ageing, health promotion and addressing health inequalities, support to the health workforce and strengthening public administration capacities (actions should focus on measures at the level of the workplace); actions improving accessibility, including for persons with disabilities, effectiveness and resilience of healthcare systems and long-term care services.
