Balancing priorities, sharing responsibilities
Current health systems need to safeguard past gains in health while responding to new threats and opportunities which call for a strengthened European public health response. Though public health security remains high on the agenda, effective health systems go beyond that and are challenged also to engage with issues that lie outside the health sector. Functioning social systems and a resilient economy strongly contribute to a healthy Europe. Keep an eye for the upcoming updates and don't forget to register!
