EU4Health is the EU’s ambitious response to COVID-19. The pandemic has a major impact on patients, medical and healthcare staff, and health systems in Europe. The new EU4Health programme will go beyond crisis response to address healthcare systems’ resilience.
The EU will invest €5.3 billion in current prices in actions within the work program of EU4Health. The program has 4 main objectives:
- Improve & foster health in the EU
- Protect people in the EU from serious cross-border threats to health
- Improve medicinal products, medical devices and crisis-relevant products
- Strengthen health systems
These objectives are implemented through annual work programmes. The 2023 work programme has been published and deadlines will be added to this page shortly.
