A global personalised medicine – can Europe lead the way?
Personalised medicine and healthcare call for appropriate governance strategies at the European and global level as they challenge the way in which healthcare systems worldwide are set up. Policy makers and the many other stakeholders have to interact and discuss medium- to long-term views and provide timely policy advice that will help prepare Europe for the likely changes in how society deals with wellbeing, health, healthy ageing, healthy diet, and disease. Such a European agenda may lead the way for a global personalised medicine.
