[Towards a European Health Union: WEBINAR 2]
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grip the continent, it is hard to deny that our collective failings during the crisis have been massive. Fault lines in the current model of European collaboration are standing out starkly again in the struggle for timely and equitable vaccine roll-outs.
The initiative for a European Health Union (EHU) is calling for more, and better Europe amidst this crisis – a renewed concentration on our shared core values, and a commitment to vest into the EU the necessary powers to sustainably secure better health for all. This webinar in the series Towards a European Health Union, hosted by the EHU Initiative and facilitated by the European Health Forum Gastein, will take an unflinching look at what is going wrong, and how we can get it right in the future.
Join us to discuss how a European Health Union can protect people, save lives, and change our current course for the better! We look forward to your input - submit your questions for the panel during the webinar using the Q&A function or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org before the event.
